ASU International Students Learn Russian through Art

Participants ofthe Preliminary Training Unit for Foreign Citizens ofAstrakhan State University attended the opening ofBelarusian artist Vladimir Khins exhibition. This time, Velimir Khlebnikovs House Museum, where our non-Russian speaking students are already frequent guests, isexhibiting linocuts and graphics.

Exposition of the items, illustrating the work of the famous Russian poet and prose writer, was accompanied by acting of performers of the Astrakhan State Young Spectators’ Theatre and items of musicians of the Astrakhan State Conservatory.

Such events are of great value not only because they give an opportunity to enrich students’ vocabulary but also because students learn Russian without an intermediary language (which is often English in their learning practice) — here the role of mediator is played by art which is intuitively understandable for any “citizen of the world”.
