Russian language in Syria will be the "first foreign"

27
In the Syrian schools began to introduce as a compulsory subject "Russian language". This school year, along with Arabic, 2,5 thousand students of 7 classes began to study it. And in the middle of November, the Russian language department will be opened at the University of Damascus. The project is actively supported by the Russian Federation. He writes about it Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

Russian language in Syria will be the "first foreign"


“In Syria, there is a large shortage of teachers of the Russian language,” said Veniamin Kaganov, Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation. “We agreed that in February 2015 of the year the first two specialists will go to Syria, who will teach Syrian teachers on the spot how to teach Russian as a foreign language.”

Moreover, the Institute of Russian Language. Pushkin has developed a "project of distance learning methods of teaching Russian as a foreign language."

“Syrian teachers can enroll in this course starting in January 2015,” the institute explained. “While the portal is working in Russian and English, it is planned that in 2015, it will be translated into Arabic and some other languages.”

“Such a large-scale task, like the introduction in the whole country of the system of teaching Russian, cannot be solved only remotely, of course,” explained the Rector of the Institute. Pushkina Margarita Rusetskaya. “We need a massive dispatch of teachers there who will begin to train local teachers in person.” Rusetskaya assumes that the sending of teachers will be financed by the Russian World Foundation, where there is a special program called Russian Professor.

Another problem is the lack of textbooks. Now available textbooks only for the seventh grade of the Arab school. At least 30 thousand copies are required “for more advanced levels of training”.

“The Russian language is very popular in Syria because of the large number of specialists who studied in the USSR and the CIS countries, as well as their wives who came from the Soviet Union,” said Hazvan Al-Oise, Minister of Education of Syria.

By the way, the minister himself graduated from the Kharkov Polytechnic Institute, is married to a Russian woman and speaks good Russian. His daughter is studying at the Academy of Music. Gnesinyh.

According to his calculations, there are now about 35 of thousands of specialists who studied in the USSR or in the CIS countries in Syria.

“We are trying to increase the popularity of the Russian language not only through schools,” the minister noted. “For example, the Syrian Ministry of Education has its own TV channel, which broadcasts Russian cartoons every day, albeit with captions in Arabic to facilitate perception.”

Al-Oise believes that in Syria it is necessary to expand not only the teaching of the Russian language, but also to "strengthen the popularization of Russian culture."

“We know a lot of Russian classical literature, but they know almost nothing about your modern writers in Syria,” said al-Oise, adding that a collection of their works is being prepared for publication.

        With all due respect to the Russian language, he objectively speaking, like many other synthetic languages ​​(German, Arabic, Turkish, Hungarian) has much less chance of similar things than analytical languages ​​(English, French, Italian, Esperanto). declensions by cases, gender, gender, etc., synthetic languages ​​are too primitive for speakers of other languages.

            Firstly: I not only and not so much as the Russian language called primitive, but all synthetic languages ​​for most other speakers.
            Secondly: think objectively, because You look at the matter as a native speaker of the Russian language. Therefore, for you and for me it is your own. And for speakers of other languages ​​as a native, this is not at all the case.

      Now in Syria is only the beginning of the mass development of the Russian language, which is fraught with difficulties of the initial period. The main thing is that there is a desire to learn Russian, and if so, then the results will certainly come.

      Something too (to put it mildly) you exaggerated with such forecasts. Only too optimistic can hope that these "migrants" will all know (at least not badly) Russian. If of us Russians are able to learn relatively easy English 1 in 20/30 (considering that English is in the same language family as Russian), then what are the chances of native speakers of Arabic (whose structure is very different from Indo-European and is primitive for us) to learn quite difficult Russian too ?! realists!

    The Syrians are grateful to Russia for not giving up their country at a difficult moment and providing assistance while other countries either stand by and watch what happens next, or as the United States and its hangers-on gather in the coden and bomb the territory of Syria under the guise of fighting ISIS.

      I agree about the richness of the Russian language! But you have proved this primitiveness for foreigners. As in many languages ​​there is not even a translation for "green green green green green". A foreigner who has learned Russian will just have to simply remember this, because in his language There is hardly such an analogue. Similar moments are found in the English language, especially in the tenses and forms of verbs.
