13.08.2020


The Russian Center in San Jose (Costa Rica) has launched online courses of Russian as a foreign language for different levels of language proficiency. The opening was attended by the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Costa Rica Yuri Bedzhanyan, who emphasized that “this is a significant day for all of you, because you are entering a new world - the world of the Russian language, in which you can get to know one of the most beautiful languages ​​on the planet and the richest cultural and historical traditions that are world heritage. "

Ernesto Jimenez, the head of the Russian Center, noted that with the launch of online courses, an opportunity opens up for all Costa Ricans interested in learning the Russian language and its culture.

According to Ernesto Jimenez, the new distance learning experience is very positive: “During the pandemic, this technological platform has become a very valuable tool that allowed us to reach places that were previously impossible. Today we have students from all over the country and from all social strata. "

In the near future, the Russian Center plans to expand online learning to other Central American countries. Teachers of Russian as a foreign language living in Russia and speaking Spanish will be attracted to fullfill this task.

Translation of the Holy Scriptures into Chinese is carried out by the parish of the Russian Orthodox Church in Taiwan. Over the eight-year period, a translation of the Gospel of Mark has been completed, and the Gospel of Matthew is in the process. The translators have made a basic glossary of biblical and theological terminology, and it is fair to say that they are working on the development of the Chinese Orthodox liturgical language. The project supervisor, rector of the Holy Cross Church in Taipei Kirill Shkarbul told the Russkiy Mir about his hopes that this translation would be able to convey the Word of God unaltered and would not be a mere retelling as other Chinese translations of the Bible.
