Modern teaching methods of the Russian language and solutions to promote education cooperation between Vietnam and Russia were discussed at a round-table conference in Hanoi on June 5.

Co-organised by the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) and the Pushkin Sub-institute in Hanoi, the event was part of activities to celebrate the Russian Day.

Speaking at the conference, RCSC Director Elena Zubtsova thanked linguists and teachers working at high schools and universities in Vietnam to attract the attention of Vietnamese youth to the Russian language and culture.

She expressed her hope that, with efforts made by linguists in Vietnam alongside close and effective cooperation between the centre and Russian universities, the teaching of Russian would be developed in the coming time. On the occasion, the centre presented certificates of merit to Vietnamese high schools and universities that participated in activities celebrating the Russian Day.

The same day, a exhibition “Pushkin in Vietnam” kicked off, displaying works by the great Russian poet A.X. Pushkin, as translated into Vietnamese.-VNA
