NCFU is holding the International seminar FRANCOPHONE DAYS IN NCFU-2017, which is arranged under support from the Embassy of France in Russia and the French Institute in Russia.

When opening the event, Valentin Shipulin (Pro-Rector for Academic Activities) noted that the University values the visit paid by the French colleagues as face-to-face communication with the speakers of the language will offer better understanding of the people, their mentality, and the culture.

Russia has always valued command of foreign languages while speaking French was, for many years, a sign of aristocracy.

Nowadays, due to the Bologna convention, the English language is prevailing and even in Sorbonne lectures are delivered in English. However, the elegance and grace of French remain unmatched.

The lecturer Thomas Ives Eric Dugen told the audience that 274 mln people all over the world speak the same language as he does. And Francophony, basically, is an organization that promotes the language and the culture of a most powerful European country. Stavropol and NCFU have long ago proven to be centers that spread the knowledge of belle France, which explains the presence at the seminar of Natalia Kolesova – Head of the Bureau CAMPUS FRANCE for Privolzhsky, Southerm, and North-Caucasus Federal Districts.

Through the event the students and schoolers got to know many interesting facts about France, joined a quiz and even tried their hand through a dictation in French.

Especially interesting were stories and presentations by students of Algeria and Côte d'Ivoire.

The seminar was another step adding to the traditional interest that Russia takes in one of the brightest European cultures.
