The Institute of Russian Studies at HUFS and the Russian Embassy in Korea held a Russian discussion contest for Korean undergraduates at the Minerva Complex on Seoul Campus on May 18.
It was held with the aim of raising interest in learning Russian and discovering students who have a talent in Russian. This year’s subject is related to the bicentennial anniversary of Ivan Turgenev's birth, a popular Russian writer. Sixteen contestants who passed the preliminary round from April 24 to May 1 competed in the semifinals divided in two tracks. The winner receives a round-trip flight between Seoul and Moscow and short-term training tickets for the Russian Language College.
As part of the event, there was a book sharing fair and quiz show, and Suwon Foreign Language High School students performed. Through these unique events, the Russian discussion contest became a venue for communication and celebration among Russian lovers.
