Closing ceremony for international summer schools at Lobachevsky University
On July 28, 2017, closing ceremony took place of two international summer schools that were held at Lobachevsky University, "Russian Summer" and "Practice in Android App Development and Using Big Data". The schools were attended by students from the United States, France, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Mexico, China and Poland. Within the framework of the academic exchange program, students of the Education University of Hong Kong also took part for the first time in "Russian Summer" school. For four weeks, the participants of this summer school studied the Russian language, attended a number of lectures presented by UNN professors, visited conversation clubs and master classes. Intensive Russian language classes were taught by experienced highly qualified teachers in small groups organized with the account of the students’ level of Russian. A rich cultural program and a creative atmosphere helped the students to reach a significant progress in learning Russian language and to get a deeper understanding of Russian culture and history. Thanks to Integration movement volunteers’ active participation in the international summer schools, foreign students were able to get to know their peers, improve their language and engage in different free-time activities. During the closing ceremony of the programs, Deputy Dean of the Faculty for International Students Konstantin Kemaev congratulated the students on the successful completion of the training, thanked the teachers and volunteers, and presented Lobachevsky University certificates to all the participants. The international summer school "Russian Summer" has been held annually by the Faculty for International Students since 2010 attracting students from different countries interested in the Russian language.
