679 schoolchildren and students from Greece, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan became the participants of the "Russian language and culture: blurring the borders" international project, organized by the Tambov State University (TSU). Almost 100 teachers from abroad were able to take advanced training courses, according to the 448 versts news outlet.
Within the framework of the project, an Olympiad in the Russian language and regional studies of Russia, presentation contests, flash mob, creative competitions and other events took place. An online marathon dedicated to Russian fairy tales turned out to be large-scale. Students dressed as heroes of fairy tales, acted out performances and demonstrated knowledge of Russian fairy tales.
One of the central events was the presentation competition "Heroes of the Great Patriotic War", during which schoolchildren and students presented projects highlighting the pages of the war and the exploits of its participants. The "Virtual Tour of Russia" competition allowed students to show their knowledge about the sights of the country.
According to the organizers, the project has proven that Russian is the language of interethnic communication. Some participants of the competition also agreed with this.
