Master-classes in the Russian language, culture and country studies were held for Vietnamese pupils.
Master-classes were devoted to the basics in the Russian language (“Let’s get acquainted!”), and country study questions (“Hello, Russia!”) about social and cultural, physical and geographical peculiarities of Russia, its regions and cities.
Special attention was given to Siberia as a strategic important resource, a scientific and research region. Vietnamese pupils were also interested in Tomsk modern and historic realities as well as Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Over 60 pupils and 6 Vietnamese Russian language teachers took part in the work.
