Ten main reasons to learn Russian (according to the University of Florida, USA)

Ten main reasons to learn Russian (according to the University of Florida, USA)Note: The text is taken from the official site of the University of Florida (the institution where Hunter Thompson and Jim Morrison studied, among other things), for which he was prepared by Professor Ben Rifkin from the College of New Jersey, one of the main educational institutions in the northwest United States. It should be noted that part of the statistics is incorrect (but we did not rule it, because it is a translation), but there are some interesting figures, as well as the perception of modern Russia in the United States. With the traditions of the Great Russian Depression, a bit of white-tooth American positive will not interfere:


1. The US government needs more Russian-speaking specialists: federal agencies have recognized Russian as a priority for state needs. Agencies that need experts in the Russian language include: US Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Health, and Welfare, National Security, Housing, and Urban Development, Department of Labor, and Department of Natural Resources. The Federal Communications Commission, the International Trade Commission, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA and the State Department also considered Russian a priority language. These agencies are recruiting staff and need your knowledge of the Russian language!

2. Russia is a regional power, and it is returning as a global one. Russia organizes alliances with the former Soviet republics: the Customs Union and the Collective Security Treaty Organization. Leading Russian politicians make proposals for the Eurasian Union, which unites the post-Soviet states, with a strategy to cover the economic and security sectors. This is expected to be an incentive for the Russian economy, foreign policy and military influence in the region. Russia also stands guard over its traditional influence in neutral countries and in the countries of the developing world, and continues to spend money on modernizing its armed forces. NASA depends on the Russian Space Agency, since it is necessary to transport astronauts to the International Space Station. Finally, the Russian commodity economy emerged from the global crisis relatively untouched. Energy analysts believe that by 2030, up to 50,% of European natural gas will be Russian.

3. Speak Russian to study the Russian economy. Russia is one of the largest suppliers (if not the largest) of a variety of natural resources and raw materials, including oil, diamonds, gold, copper, manganese, uranium, silver, graphite and platinum. Russia is the second largest steelmaker after Japan, and also has gigantic forest resources. Russia is the largest supplier of natural gas, the third one in terms of oil, and the fourth in coal production. It is estimated that 40% of the world's natural gas reserves are located in Russia. Russia's proven oil reserves are less than only Saudi Arabia, which is the largest oil supplier in the world. For American goods and services, the Russian market is huge. With knowledge of the Russian language, you will be able to work with American firms trading in this thriving market. The state of Florida and Russia are also engaged in business: the total trade turnover between Florida and Russia in 2007 year exceeded 986 million dollars. Russia is in a dozen of countries profitable for business.

4. Russian language is important for science and technology. According to a recent study, the largest number of scientific publications published in English, in second place is Russian. This applies to chemistry, physics, geology, mathematics and biology. There have always been rich scientific traditions in Russia — from Mendeleev to medalists who have recently received the Fields Premium in Mathematics. The Soviet tradition of creating science campuses and academic communities is replaced by a management system supported by government agencies and private sector startups. Innovations in programming, software development and information technology come from Russian government agencies and private companies.

5. Russian is spoken by hundreds of millions of people: the Russian Federation extends over nine time zones and occupies about 1 / 8 parts of all land. This is the largest country in the world, its area is almost twice as large as the American one. The population of Russia is almost 150 of millions of people, which is slightly more than 50% of the population of the former Soviet Union. The number of Russian speakers in the world is 270 million people.

6. Explore one of the most exciting cultures: many of the best traditions of world art were born in Russia. Ballet, theater, cinema, literature, music and the visual arts are only a few of the spheres in which Russians have created great traditions and continue to give outstanding innovators to the world. From George Balanchine to Mikhail Baryshnikov, Sergey Eisenstein to Andrei Tarkovsky, Anton Chekhov to Konstantin Stanislavsky, Fyodor Dostoevsky to Vladimir Sorokin, Shostakovich to Hvorostovsky ... the Russians create masterpieces! And did you know that acquaintance with Russian helps you to perceive the world differently? Those who speak Russian, in which there are more words for light and dark shades of blue, visually distinguish shades of blue.

7. The Russian language is perfectly combined with many other areas of knowledge: business and Russian, science and Russian, political science or история and Russian, English and Russian, another foreign language and Russian, engineering and Russian, mathematics and Russian, music and Russian. Russian language gives you opportunities that your fellow students do not have who do not study it. For example, a student specializing in biology and Russian can go abroad and work with Russian biologists in the Russian laboratory, receive a grant to study the ecology of freshwater in Lake Baikal and Lake Tahoe, and then continue their studies at the medical institute.

8. Studying Russian helps you get into programs after undergraduate studies: students who study Russian are more likely to take graduate studies in law schools, business schools, medical universities, and other professional programs.

9. Learners of Russian language build successful careers. Students who have studied the Russian language are working as engineers at the Center for Space Research. Johnson, in banks operating in international markets, in the Peace Corps, in leading audit firms (in Russia and in the USA), in large and small law firms, in Russian, European and American press services, in the State Department, in the Ministry of Commerce The United States, who teach English in Russian schools, work in NGOs such as the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace, the National Center for Foreign Languages, and the US-Russia Business Council. Some of our students who have studied Russian work on the American Council of Teachers of Russian Language and Literature and the American Council on International Studies and Exchanges (IREX) in both the United States and Russia.

10. The success of the University of Florida's Russian language learning program has been proven. The students of our program trained from the US State Department in Moscow, under the Fulbright program, the Pickering program for bachelors of international relations, worked in the Department of Defense, the Military Institute of Foreign Languages, and the US Department of State. To get an honors degree, they took part in research in Moscow libraries and archives, served in the Peace Corps, became Rhodes scholarship recipients, got masters and graduate programs in prestigious universities (among them were Georgetown, Harvard, Indiana University, University of Toronto) . Take part in a program to learn Russian at the University of Florida, and let your example be our next success story!

        Well, for blue there are several gradations in the joke: "Blue, like blue; blue, as much blue; blue, as much as purple; blue, as much as black!" I think this gradation of shades of blue will be enough for them ...

      This is only among the Russian-speaking blue - the color of LGBT people. And in America it is, with some stretch of the imagination, purple and pink, but rather even a rainbow. Are you an hidden gay for an hour? And then something attracted you to the homosexuality, although the conversation did not seem to be about this, but about the Russian language. Has the subconscious mind worked?
      In general, blue is not blue, but blue. And for lighter shades of blue, they have names like sky blue.

      Tatarus. Good evening . I would add there. STUDY FUNDAMENTAL SCIENCES AND BE THE REPRESENTATIVE OF ONE OF THREE SCIENTIFIC SCHOOLS OF THE WORLD. EXCEPT RUSSIAN SCIENTIFIC SCHOOL IN THE WORLD THERE IS ONLY French and English.
      As Lyusternik L.A. (mathematician No. 1 of the 20th century) - Soviet mathematician, academician, doctor of physical and mathematical sciences sciences. Somehow they brought me one mathematical problem. Non-standard such. And they say that for a year now the Americans made up a program to solve it and launched a supercomputer. What to do ? We simply don’t have such an opportunity, but it IS NECESSARY, and they point the finger up, THERE ARE REQUIRED. I’m about 2-3 months. tinkering with it, but found a way and decided. When I showed it, they didn’t believe it at first. And then they gave some kind of prize, they said that I saved hundreds of millions of rubles and several years of experimental work. In a word: they wiped the nose of enemies. And for what and why, he did not know. hi

      It is illogical. In the event that such a "deal" occurs, Russians who know English will be required. The "colonialists" do not condescend to the level of the oppressed "aborigines", why do they need their language, they come not for culture, but with somewhat different goals. So following this logic, the Yankees are preparing to be introduced to Russian culture after the Russian colonization of American aborigines. wassat

    Look at promoting English in the world. For example, in Russia they offer to learn English even for free. what for?
    Another example: Norwegian language courses are often held in Arkhangelsk. Thus, the Norgs "recruit" Arkhangelsk students at an early stage. (Dmitry Semushin wrote about Norway's soft power mechanisms: http://forum.schta.ru/index.php/topic,356.msg2050.html#msg2050)

    Spreading the Russian language abroad is a double-edged sword, but the positive end of the stick is longer than the negative))).

    In principle, a good advertisement for students, here in our universities they don’t do that, and what’s wrong with knowing several languages? And for the United States in particular, because they are currently the dominant global Empire, for them it’s more relevant, because it is not enough to "put legions on the Rhine" you also need to know what is going on on the other side, so here the study of Russian and Chinese is most important for them, the rest are also important, but their carriers are either already sufficiently LGBTized or are satellites and loyally look into the eyes.

    The FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the State Department also considered Russian a priority language.

    But why? request

    article about the Russian language and comments about gays, comrades, leave the chimney sweeps alone. The article is an advertisement but I read it with pleasure, all the more there is a grain of truth in this.

    Forgot to add that learning Russian will give a plus when entering DEVGRU or the 1st Special Battalion.

    Speaking of languages.
    In the 19th century, Russia learned French. They threw it to Napoleon.
    In the 20th German. Hitler was robbed.
    Now we are learning English. As I think, what prospects open, already the soul sings.)))

      Do you have a German nickname from these songs? Was it really so difficult to write "Pied Piper" in Cyrillic?

        I still wildly apologize, but what is your concern to my nickname? And why look for analogies and symbolism where they are not?
        Z.Y. For what purpose, by the way, did you take the surname of Belgian gunsmiths with a pseudonym?

    It would not be bad if the Russian language becomes international. But the Yankees do not believe about their love of Russian culture.

      Russian, alas, is too complicated for this. Such a bunch of cases, conjugations, declensions, childbirth, endings, etc. the vast majority of foreigners will not master. English in this regard is much simpler.
      Although I also dream of Russian-international. By the way, in Soviet times, efforts were made for this in the countries of the socialist camp. In Eastern Europe, Russian was taught as a foreign language, Russian was actively promoted in Asia: Mongolia, Vietnam, Laos, North Korea, etc. It’s bad that now nothing is being done for this, but Anglicisms have filled the Russian language. As you listen to the hosts on some MTV thread, it turns inside out from their fashion, glamor, party, corporate, etc.

    There is one more reason! Quote: “The image of Russians as an extremely brutal nation, the image of people who can’t be stopped. It is essential that such an image ALREADY HAS BEEN TAKENED by the Western audience - otherwise there would be no profit in using it for advertising. They are afraid of us - just trembling in knees. "
    And now the Nike video "Play in Russian": http://takie.org/news/igrat_po_russki/2013-12-01-7847

    I hate advertising, but ... class!

    I will add one more point: "11. From Russia will come the salvation of our civilization from the pernicious path that the whole world is following today. After that, relations between the United States and the Eurasian Union will enter the phase of the broadest cooperation and friendship between peoples."

    yes, by the way, the other day I heard in the news that finals are recommended to learn Russian. Well, to better understand each other. but in general I do not want to hear - the Russians have come here. at home you need to improve your life. only they don't give us ours. and I also like how M. Zadornov spoke about the Russian language and the meaning of words. such as God, liver and so on. this is their liver, and our liver is where it is warmest. And I would have looked at George W. Bush if I had re-read War and Peace in Russian. and so this is just a training of willpower. what, our literature is "dumbbell" what?

    I can offer Professor Ben Rifkin, and indeed all Americans, one more, the main reason, because of which IM should learn our language.

    If I am not mistaken, then Russia (while still an empire) is the only one who supported the United States in their war for independence. Moreover, the support was both material (Alaska does not count :)), and military (naval).

    At least out of gratitude, if any ... more ...

        But why swear? Previously, you had to think when they were selling on the cheap, in 1867 for $ 7200000 ($ 116000000 in current bucks). And what will you do with it if you still have not really mastered Siberia and the Far East? It’s better to do the strengthening and development of the Far East before its chines are appropriated, especially since you seem to be from there. But they look at these lands and slyly squint.

      Asan Ata I welcome. Add your words to yesterday’s speech of Nazarbayev and WAS good . To the very point.
      He spoke for trilingualism. Kazakh, as a state and for the expression of our unity. Russian, as interethnic and through which we began to study the cultures and languages ​​of other peoples of the world and which is included in the 6 first languages ​​of the world. And one foreigner to communicate with representatives of other peoples of the world.
      Your words would be right there in color. I have seen such shots during my urgent service. Without a mat, NOT ONE OFFER. MOM swear. Sometimes they say so succinctly, literally two or three words. What are you starting to think. And if you need to express yourself literally, a whole novel must be written in order to convey THESE TWO-THREE WORDS, their emotion and meaning.

        Mat developed by the long efforts of men, and its capacity is the enclosed efforts of these people. Where without a mat? But - Russian mat - this is not Kazakh, for Kazakh - right after the face. bully
