Astrakhan State University is running a training course for teachers of the Uzbekistan State University of World Languages. Yesterday they met with ASU Acting Rector Konstantin Markelov and shared their impressions from the study process.
The guests from Uzbekistan are taking the course at the Caspian Higher School of Interpreting and Translation. A week of intensive classes is already behind, and the delegation is leaving Astrakhan on March, 7. Within their training course, the participants got a unique chance to attend master classes by Nikolay Telnov, an interpreter of the Russian booth of the UN Office at Vienna who is a long-standing partner of ASU.
At their meeting with our Rector, the guests made no disguise of their positive impressions both from the study process and from the university in general. The training course they are taking is dedicated to teaching interpretation. In fact, the foreign university is going to develop a far wider range of cooperation initiatives: its main goal is to launch a double-degree programme. Konstantin Markelov noted that the two universities have much in common, the curricula are similar as well, so the project is fully feasible. The ASU Rector also told the guests about international activities of Astrakhan State University and upcoming important events in this sphere. By the way. strengthening ties with the Uzbekistan colleagues is also supported by foreign partners, who focus on replication of the Caspian region experience in Central Asia.
