The Day of Confucius Institute was celebrated in the Far East
On September 27, Confucius Institutes Day is celebrated around the world. These cultural and educational centers are a symbol of China's international cooperation with other countries.
In the Far East there are now three such institutes - in Vladivostok, Blagoveshchensk and Komsomolsk. The Confucius Institute was founded on the basis of the Amur State Pedagogical University four years ago.
“The idea of the Confucius Institute is not unique,” said director Andrei Koshkin. - There are Pushkin Institute abroad, for example, the Cervantes Institute. They are designed to help the local population to better understand the language, culture, traditions of the country of interest to them, and promote the interpenetration of cultures.
The institute working at the AMSPU is the only one in the Far East where there is a center for advanced training of teachers officially approved by the "Head Office of the PRC for the Spread of the Chinese Language". There is a very good methodological base here - the institution provides assistance to other educational institutions of the city, where they study the language of the Middle Kingdom.
“We have a lot of events,” said the director of the Institute. - In addition to the actual language courses, we organize seminars for everyone, Olympiads, screenings of Chinese films, master classes in national cooking, traditional arts, and do Chinese gymnastics.
Today in the main building of the AmSPGU it was noisy and fun - the participants and guests easily communicated in Russian and Chinese, cut out paper to the melodious compositions of the Ethnozvuk group, learned to weave "baubles" with the help of Chinese knots, painted masks of the Peking opera. Teachers from the People's Republic of China held an open Chinese lesson and a master class in calligraphy. Connoisseurs of the Chinese language took part in the quiz. Cartoons and documentaries were shown in one of the auditoriums.
At the moment, the Confucius Institute at AmSPGU has about forty students. They are taught Chinese by three Chinese specialists - from Harbin and Dalian. In the near future, according to director Andrei Koshkin, the arrival of a professional teacher of traditional Chinese gymnastics Tai Ji is expected.
