Unusual Russian lessons held in Milan


During the last week, the staff of the Russian Center of the University of Milan conducted online Russian language lessons in an unusual format. In all four groups of the second year, the lesson consisted of assignments on the New Year theme.

At the beginning of the lesson, students worked in small groups in separate video chats. They independently composed stories on the topics suggested by the teacher: Christmas in Russian, New Year's characters, a festive table, what the Old New Year is, etc. Then they presented their projects in a general video chat, followed by a poetic pause - some students prepared a video with a recording of the reading poems by Russian poets. 

According to students, lessons conducted in this format develop an interest in Russian culture and support motivation to learn Russian.

On the occasion of its 150th anniversary, the State Historical Museum begins a large-scale renovation. The scope includes the main building of the museum on Red Square, the Monument to Minin and Pozharsky, the Novodevichy Convent, and other objects. However, the museum will be open for visitors. Aleksey Levykin, the museum director, told the Russkiy Mir about the restoration, new exhibitions, and interactive projects of the State Historical Museum.
"Russians build houses from things they have available at hand. Their skills and sense of beauty are admired all over the world," says photographer Fyodor Savintsev. Fyodor was engaged in photojournalism for about 20 years. His attention recently has been drawn to Russian "dachas" - country houses that might seem to be of a dime-a-dozen type and are scattered throughout the Arkhangelsk region.
