At the end of July, there was a graduation of the second group of the preparatory department in the Russian language for foreign citizens, the students were trained in a biomedical program. They studied Russian, biology, chemistry and physics.
The group brought together representatives from 5 countries: Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon, Syria and Sri Lanka. Future biologists, doctors and pharmacists received their initial life skills in Russia and went through a good school of social adaptation in a new country.
One of the brightest impressions, in addition to the St. Petersburg weather, was the opening of such a public transport as the metro. They saw it for the first time. The students turned out to be more prepared for the peculiarities of Russian life, and many of them liked Russian cuisine.
The group turned out to be quite motivated, inquisitive and active. They visited the cruiser Aurora and the Hermitage together with the teacher Elena Vitalievna Komovskaya. On International Women's Day on March 8, the employees of the Center for International Cooperation and Academic Mobility were invited to a festive concert, where students read poetry in Russian and demonstrated the beauty of their countries.
