Winter school-2017 is over

But for winter in cities and villages Accompanied by the sounds of this popular Russian song about winter an annual Winter school of the Russian language and culture in Tomsk Polytechnic University was over. Its several years that TPU has been organizing an intensive academic and rich cultural programme for foreigners who are interested in the Russian language and culture. 13 students from Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Peoples Republic of China and Korea attended Winter school from January,16 to February,3.

The attendees studied Russian hard for three weeks, learnt the Russian culture as well as participated in various activities allowing to get a feeling of real Siberians life: going to the Russian bath, skiing at TPU stadium, Epiphany bathing in the White Lake and taking masterclasses on cooking traditional ukha, pelmeni and pancakes.

The atmosphere of the Winter school was friendly and all the students were eager to study Russian. It is worth noting that some attendees had already been in Tomsk before. This is not surprising, since one falls in love with Tomsk at once and its impossible to forget winter Tomsk!

The foreign students left Tomsk with Russian souvenirs and fond memories about a cold Siberian winter. The Winter school-2017 is over, but we are waiting for all those willing to start and continue learning the language in the Summer school of the Russian language and culture.
