The week of the Russian language in Slovakia will be held October 12-16. It will bring together specialists from the Surgut Pedagogical University (SurSPU) and Slovak universities - the Presovsky University, where the Russian Center of the Russkiy Mir Foundation has been opened, and the Matej Bel University from Banská Bystrica. The Dean of the Philological Faculty of the SurGPU Nikolai Ganushchak and the professor of the Surgut University Dmitry Larkovich spoke about the events of the Week, SIA-PRESS reports.

The organizers of the Russian Language Week were the SurSPU, the Slovesnost Foundation and the government of the Khanty-Mansiysk Okrug. In addition to universities of the two countries, Russian schools in Slovakia will join the events. Lectures, conferences, round tables, quizzes for students and schoolchildren, and a show based on Russian fairy tales are going to take place during the festival. 

The parties intend to discuss student exchange between universities of the two countries. The universities in the region are also planning to start issuing double diplomas.

According to representatives of the Russian university, Slovakia was chosen to host the week, since the SurSPU has developed close professional ties with Slovak universities. They enable the implementation of projects aimed at promoting the Russian language in Europe.

The data on the competition for the Russian branches of Slovak universities suggests that local youth understand the importance and prospects of learning the Russian language. According to Nikolai Ganuschak, the SurSPU is preparing to develop such relationships with Hungarian universities.
