International Reciter’s Contest in the Institute for International Education and Language Communication

On December 7, 2009 in the Institute for International Education and Language Communication during traditional Russian Language and Culture week a Reciter’s Contest among international students, PhD students, and teachers of TPU was held.

The Contest organizers were Russian as a Foreign Language Department, Support and Guidance Department of IIE&LC, Russian language club “Zhar-ptitsa”. Twenty eight international students, Ph.D. students, and teachers from Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Iran, and Canada took part in the Contest. Poetry of 18 Russian poets of 19-20 centuries was recited. The Contest proceeded in a friendly homelike atmosphere, still participants were in a serious mood and a little bit anxious about their performance.

The panel of judges was rather strict, but fair. The panel included Voronova A.A., deputy director for cultural activities of International Cultural Center, Radionov V., an actor of Regional Drama Theater, a poet, a singer, as well as a graduate of Tomsk Polytechnic Institute, Mikhaleva E.V., the head of Russian as a Foreign Department of IIE&LC, Guzarova N. I., the head of the Pre-university Department of IIE&LC.

The winner of the Contest became Zhu Yanan , who came here from Jilin university (China) to study under an Academic Exchange programme. She charmed judges and spectators by her performance of poem by V. Tushnova “Did I disappoint you, tell me?” (V chem otkazala ya tebe, skaji) in Russian and in Chinese languages (The contestant made translation by herself).

Munkhtogtokh Dulguun , a first-year student from Mongolia became the second. Dulguun was able to emotionally and vividly convey the mood of Russian folklore performing a poem by M. Tsvetaeva “Chtobi pomnil ne chasotchek, ne godok…”(For you to remember me longer than a day, longer than a year…).

Wang Chunchui, a student from Jilin university (China), who came here to study under an Academic Exchange programme took a third place. He recited a poem by N. Aseev “Ya ne mogu bez tebya zhit’” (I can not live without you).

All the participants demonstrated creativity, ingenuousness, versatility and true interest towards Russian culture during the preparation for the contest. They had to cope with not only peculiarities of Russian phonetics and intonation, but elements of verse and rhyme features as well as mystery of Russian soul in every line of Russian poets works. Many students admitted that the contest became one of the most considerable events in their Tomsk life. The panel of judges as well as Russian as a foreign language teachers noticed that the Reciter’s contest has a great educational, cultural, emotional potential and it should became traditional event for the Institute.
