UTMN students participated in the event dedicated to Arabic Language Days. It was organized by the Association of Foreign Students.
Participants completed a quest consisting of eight stations, each representing the Arab state: Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Sudan, Algeria, Yemen, and Egypt. They solved historical puzzles, analyzed clips from Arabic films, discussed ancient languages and, after completing tasks, received symbolic prizes.
At the end of the program, the audience was able to immerse themselves in a unique atmosphere: they enjoyed the Dabke and Saidi folk dances, listened to the Jordanian rock song “Metro” and watched other bright performances.
Ksenina Zelenina, area studies student at UTMN, said she learned a lot of useful new facts about the East and thanked for the opportunity to meet friends from different countries, as well as to try on clothes national.
It should be added that around a hundred people study Arabic at the University of Tyumen. There is also an Arab center, which aims to attract applicants from abroad, adapt students and specialists who come to study and work at UTMN and coordinate joint research projects.
