Semester internship at Ludwigsburg University of Education (Germany)

I took part in the academic mobility program at Ludwigsburg University of Education, Germany. Classes took place during the second semester of 2020/2021 academic year.

About 2 weeks before going to Germany all participants of the program were offered an online University German Class: we studied every day with a native speaker. It was a great opportunity to improve your knowledge before internship, mentally prepare for language immersion and get rid of doubts about the lack of confidence in communicating in German.The semester was held remotely.

The university has its own educational environment, students have all courses and homework in their personal account.Large percentage of information is given for students' self study. The teacher is a mentor who guides, but does not give ready answers. Also, students can independently organize the educational process, choose classes to study, adjust their personal schedule.

But the pandemic affected not only how student life was organized: quarantine measures were much stricter in Germany than in Russia. For the first few weeks, most public places were closed or restricted to visiting (for example, it was impossible to go to a cafe or restaurant, and in order to go shopping in a mall, you had to make an appointment by phone; no more than 30 minutes were allotted for all purchases).

Fortunately, sooner or later the measures began to weaken, and social life began to revive. It became possible to learn more about Germany, visit public places, and travel (observing all precautions, of course).

Together with a team of international students, we looked at many cities in the south of Germany (Marbach am Neckar, Esslingen am Neckar, Heidelberg, Heilbron, Immenstadt im Allgäu, Friedrichshafen, etc.) They greatly smitten with its genuineness, uniqueness and a truly German atmosphere.

Almost every city in the south is a historical monument of architecture, so many ancient buildings have been survived there.

The North of Germany seemed completely different to me. Larger cities, modern architecture, even people are completely different.

I am very glad that we had the opportunity to travel around Germany: students have a lot of weekends and holidays. There is even a whole week in the middle of the semester, which is called Exkursionswoche, made for travel and excursions.

I was pleasantly surprised that an impressive part of the population speaks excellent English. At first time, I was not sure in my German and it was rather difficult to speak with Germans in their native language. But now I use German everywhere.

Summer semester in Germany was an unforgettable experience: a new country and culture, a lot of new acquaintances with people from all over the world, sharing experience and knowledge.

When I found out that the winter semester promises to be offline, I desperately wanted to extend my stay in Germany for another semester. Online classes were great but the real student life with classes on campuses and live communication are more interesting for me. I am glad that it has came true but, of course, I miss Russia and SSUSSE.

in my opinion, every student should participate in academic mobility program. Studying in another country expands your own scope, makes you think differently, look differently at familiar things. It is wonderful that our university offers students academic exchange programs in different countries.

I would like to express my special gratitude to International Office of SSUSSE and Department of Foreign Languages for the opportunity. Such experience will certainly be useful in my future professional career.

Semester internship at Ludwigsburg University of Education (Germany)

From April to September 2021, I took part in academic mobility programm at Ludwigsburg University of Education, Germany. It started with an interview for a scholarship, which took place at our university. I was very glad and even shocked that I got it because I could not even dream of such an opportunity! After that, active preparations for the trip began: obtaining a passport, visa, and processing all kinds of documents. Looking back, I can say with confidence that it was worth it.

It may seem that we did not choose the best time to travel: there are restrictions everywhere due to COVID-19, and, accordingly, distance learning. Nevertheless, we were able to fully enjoy our stay in this beautiful country. Two months later, quarantine measures began to weaken and more and more opportunities opened up for us to explore Germany.

Despite the fact that online learning is no longer new to us, I was very worried because everything seemed new and incomprehensible. But as time went on, I joined the process and enjoyed learning and practicing the language. The classes were organized competently and conveniently: seminars and lectures were held in Zoom or Webex, and we also worked on the Moodle platform and discussed tasks there on forums, asked questions and helped each other.

An interesting point that I noted is the frequent group work. During the calls, the teachers united us in groups to discuss tasks and their answers to them, so that we could help each other and hear an answer option that we might not have thought about. There were also "asynchronous" seminars where students studied independently based on materials and instructions posted on the Moodle platform. This kind of work seemed difficult to me, because all the questions were discussed only on the forum, and there was no communication with the teacher himself except for his answers in the chat.

Nevertheless, there were enough materials, and I successfully completed this seminar. Now I will be able to diversify my future lessons with web quests.

Most of all, I liked the desire of teachers to ensure that students understand their subject. They were always open to questions and willingly answered them. At each lesson, time was specially allocated for this. Some even devoted one or two classes to this a week before the exams in which I happened to participate.

In between classes and on weekends, we went to nearby cities and were able to fully enjoy the architecture and views of Germany. Hills covered with forests, fields with huge wind turbines, vineyards, dilapidated castles - all this can be seen from the windows of trains. I especially remember Heidelberg with its ancient castle. Alas, it was not possible to get inside, but even a walk around the neighborhood caused me delight. As well as Frankfurt am Main, famous for skyscrapers and business centers. Having been there, I realized that it is not for nothing that it is also called "German Manhattan". And on the embankment of museums, everyone will be able to find something interesting: from sculptures and paintings to technology.

I especially remember how people supported each other during the quarantine. Upon arrival in Germany, students must self-isolate for ten days. The tutors of the international department of the university helped us as much as they could, but there were times when students themselves responded to requests for help, for example with food purchases, whose ten-day deadline had passed. At such moments, you realize that you are not alone, and they will always help you.

This trip was a wonderful experience! I learned a lot about Germany, the people who live in this country, and myself. I express my gratitude to the Department of Foreign Languages for the opportunity, and I thank the international department of SSUSSE for the help and support.

Semester internship at Ludwigsburg University of Education (Germany)

I took part in academic mobility program at Ludwigsburg University of Education in winter semester of 2020/21 and I want to share with you my impressions.

I have long dreamed of going to Germany not only to practice my language skills, but also to see how people live in one of the European countries, to get acquainted with their culture and mentality. Therefore, I was extremely glad to receive such an invaluable opportunity from my university.

Preparations for the trip were quite stressful due to COVID-19, but all the efforts were worth it. It was very exciting for me to come to another country for quite a long time. Now I realize that all the worries were in vain, and the trip was very successful.

Unfortunately, the study took place entirely online, although we were given hopes that some seminars would be held at the university, but the situation with COVID-19 destroyed all hopes. But still, I was lucky enough to participate in one offline seminar, which was dedicated to intercultural communication. The seminar was very useful and well organized. Together with other students, we discussed ways to overcome cultural shock and offered our ideas for overcoming it. The seminar was held for about five hours with breaks, and during this time we managed to discuss in great detail various aspects of intercultural communication.

I liked the way the online training was organized. The teachers were technically well versed in conducting online classes, for example, they organized separate online rooms for discussing any issue or topic in a group or in pairs. At first I was worried that I might not be able to understand anything or even ask a question? But all the worries were in vain. I can even say that there were no difficulties with understanding, and if something was not clear, then I could ask the teacher the questions I was interested in. Teachers are open to communication and teach students not to be afraid to ask any questions, even if they seem somehow stupid. The most important thing for them is that the student understands, so they are ready to calmly repeat the topic several times if at least one student has any difficulties.

I was also glad that I was able to study another foreign language in Germany - Spanish. Learning foreign languages is very exciting, and it is doubly interesting to learn a foreign language in another foreign language. It sounds complicated, but it is quite possible.

Most of all, I liked the opportunity to choose the disciplines to study on my own, that is, I can choose something that is not even related to my specialty in any way. So I chose dancing for myself, where I hoped to study in the hall with a teacher and to contact other participants of the course live, but, unfortunately, the dancing took place online. It doesn't sound very good, but it's better at least that way than nothing at all. There were only four of us willing and we had to come up with the choreography ourselves. We stayed in touch with the teacher online and periodically reported on the progress of our work. Due to the inability to rehearse in the gym, we had to rehearse together somewhere. I lived together with another student of SSUSSE Marina Gurova in one room, which was larger in size than the other guys, so we decided to rehearse with us. We worked well together as a team and made a good choreography, which we shot on video and sent to the teacher. She was pleased that we successfully coped with the task in such conditions.

Despite the long lockdown in Germany and restrictive measures, I managed to visit various cities in Baden-Württemberg, as well as visit the Bavarian city of Munich, visit Frankfurt am Main in Hesse. In Germany, traveling is very easy and fast enough, but it's not cheap, especially if you travel by train. It is unusual that you can take a train from Ludwigsburg and in 20 minutes you will already be in Stuttgart.

For me, Germany is a country of fabulous gingerbread houses that create such a warm cozy atmosphere in the city, so it was a pleasure for me to just wander the streets, relaxing after school. Each house is a work of art, in which everything is thought out to the smallest detail.

So, from my trip to Germany, I have only warm memories. I was able to experience life in another country, meet wonderful people from other countries, with whom I hope to meet live again, improve my knowledge of German and English.

Thanks to the Department of Foreign Languages and the International Department for the opportunity! This trip had a huge impact on me and made me believe in my strength.

Academic mobility programme "Erasmus+" at the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia (Rome, Italy)

The academic year at the Conservatoryof Santa Cecilia wasthe best gift that my university could give in 2020.

It was an incredible experience of living in a different country with a different culture and a different language code.

I was very lucky, I spent the global quarantine at home, and the educational process in Italy was offline.

Of course, there were some restrictions, such as surgical masks outdoors and indoors, protective screens in classrooms, keeping social distance. But it was minor compared to the emotions and knowledge I received.

The invaluable experience of professional Italian teachers was certainly useful to me. As a future teacher, I started to use an interesting method of my teacher in Italy - to show in pictures those muscles in the body that the exercise is aimed at. It helps quickly understand what muscles needs to be used.

The spring concert of exchange students was held in the great hall of the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia. It was an opportunity to show everything that we have been taught all this time.

Also, thanks to the fact that I spent the whole academic year in Italy, I could take part in all national and Catholic festivals. For example, I saw beautiful decorations of the central streets of the city, as well as the wonderful tradition of watching the football championship on the terrace with the neighbours, and rooting for "your team".

In addition to Italian traditions, I also learned a lot about other exchange students' countries. We organized themed evenings and spoke a lot about traditions in our countries.

Thank you to everyone who helped me throughout this year, I was never left alone in trouble.

Academic mobility programme at the Catholic University of the West (Angers, France)

"Finally, I will go to France not as a tourist, but as a student!" - I had thought when I went to study at the Catholic University of the West of Angers (by the way the university is not Catholic at all, but more on that later).

Unfortunately, my experience was overshadowed by the sanitary measures that were taken in France because of COVID-19. Honestly, it was really difficult to get a visa, leave Russia and come to France. But it's okay, we coped with it!

September 1, 2020, I went to the first meeting of students in a building called the "University Palace". The building is called a palace because there the history of UCO (the name of our French partner university) began.

Although the "palace" seems old from the outside, everything is a little different inside. Besides the authenticity of the hall, decorative elements were saved but the classrooms furnished with the latest technology.

Let's return to the first meeting of students. It was very cordial, despite the social distance and surgical masks. Firstly, we were told in detail how everything is done at the university. After that, the UCO students showed us the city: sightseeing attractions, beautiful places and, of course, the best bars of the city.

The organizational process lasted 4 days. Then the study began. We got to know French students and new teachers better.

All the teachers were very kindly; they were always smiled and ready to help. Everything was as friendly and comfortable as possible. Among all the teachers, I can single out two who have sunk very deeply into my the soul: these were Madame Ani Berks, who taught me a lot of classes, and Madame Florence Coubar, who taught me French. These two teachers gave me a lot. They really derive pleasure from the subjects that they teach.

In general, despite the quarantine and curfew, I really liked Angers, and I decided to stay there for the second semester and I did not regret a bit. I met a lot of interesting people, visited many cities and places. In the second semester, I chose a lot of new and interesting classes.

As for Angers, it can be described in three words:

Dynamic. Angers is a city where there are a lot of events in various fields (especially sport and art) took place on weekdays or weekends. In addition, many national and international events are held throughout the year.

Human. Angers is a small size city with a population of 153,000 people this is a city where life is beautiful! As the residents say: "douceur angevine"! Public transport is well developed and affordable: tram, bus, bicycle, etc. There are 215 km of cycle lanes in the city. Bicycles and scooters sharing system Pony Bikes" is really popular there. In addition, it is also convenient to move on foot: numerous pedestrian zones and facilities for pedestrians make it safe and usable!

Modern. In recent years, the city of Angers has been significant modernized in the field of: transport (the laying of tram line), public infrastructure (Conference Center, the embankment Coeur de Maine) and reconstruction of the city center (the embankment Jean Turc). Located an hour and a half by train from Paris, Angers is often visited by artists and celebrities who provides a constantly updated cultural program.

Considered all round, France is perfect. If you are thinking about whether to go to Angers or not, then I strongly recommend you go. Angers is a really beautiful city, where I was lucky to live for 9 months. I will be happy to return there in the future to see all the wonderful people I met there.

I wish you all a good day and a good mood.

Unknown Paris

For many centuries, Paris continues to attracttourists' attention. It is a dream city, museum city, city of luxury. At all times, the best writers sang about Paris in different languages. Teachers of the Chair of Romance Philology invited students studying French to participate in a competition of multimedia presentations and plot their route through the streets of the ancient city. The participants were given the rule: they should not tell about the Paris that is shown to all tourists without exception with a standard set of attractions, but about Paris that is unfamiliar, unknown to the public. Students presented bright and unusual project presentations to the jury.
Each student was able to:
- find yourself in the oldest cafe in the city, where Voltaire, P. Verlaine and A. France were;
- visit the Musee Edith Piaf and sniff the scent of a flower market;
- visit the Mundolingua linguistic museum and learn the history of the origin of the languages;
- see the oldest residential building in Paris, which belonged to Nicolas Flamel (famous alchemist of the XV century);
- descend into the most secret dungeons of the French capital;
- walk around the city where A. Dumas' musketeers used to have their adventure;
It was very difficult for the jury to choose the winners because every project presentation was fabulous.
Yulia V. Nabok, Associate Professor of the Chair of Romance Philology said:
- My colleagues and I had an incredible pleasure watching students' project presentations. Not only the students, but also the teachers, were able to see Paris with new eyes and learn a lot of new and interesting things. When creating the project presentation, the students not only learned how to work in a team and improved their computer skills, but also they made online visit of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

We all love opera!

On March 29, 2021, an event dedicated to Italian opera was held at the Department of Foreign Languages. The 2nd and 3rd year students studying Italian prepared presentations about famous Italian opera performers for guests (junior students and teachers of the Department of Foreign Languages). Everyone had an amazing opportunity to learn about the history of opera, listen to world-famous arias and enjoy the best opera voices of Luciano Pavarotti, Alessandro Safina, Andrea Bocelli.
Natalia Shvets, 2nd year student of the Italian language group:
- I made a presentation about Alessandro Safina. I really like this opera singer. I have known his most famous single since my childhood, because I grew up on the TV series "Clone", and his song was one of the main ones. When I was preparing the presentation, I learn that our Russian singer Emin has a duet with Alessandro. They song the song "Blue Eternity" by Muslim Magomayev in Russian and Italian together.
Anastasia Anokhina, 2nd year student of the Italian language group:
"I told about Luciano Pavarotti. Unfortunately he is no longer with us. I was impressed by the presentation about the duet of Ed Sheeran (a British pop musician) and Andrei Bocelli (Italian tenor). Such projects, combining opera and pop performance, have a great success with the public for more than a decade. In my opinion, it is a very successful experience, when the boundaries between such different genres are blurred, and hit songs for all time are obtained. We all remember the unforgettable duet of Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe at the opening of the 1992 Summer Olympics. Neither opera diva nor cult musician has been around for a long time, but this song is often performed to this day on all radio stations around the world.

French dress code

The modern world is inseparable from fashion. Everyone are strongly influenced by trends. It is unfair to limit fashion to the sphere of clothing and design because fashion is multifaceted: it is reflected in various spheres of public life: political, spiritual, and economic including the field of education.

We know that there have been discussions about the appearance of teachers for a long time, including at the state level. What should be the wardrobe of the future teacher? What fashion trends are relevant this season?

Students of the Department of Foreign Languages and their teacher - Olga V. Nenasheva (Associate Professor of the Chair of Romance Philology) organized a thematic French class dedicated to fashion to answer these questions.

The students talked about the history of fashion, modern trends, and what trends they like the most. Moreover, the students showed their fashion looks and talked about their style. It was very useful and interesting.

Dmitry Kapishnikov said:

- Of course, both men and women watch their appearance in the modern world. Teachers should be especially careful about choosing a wardrobe, because they are an example for their students. The event was informative and very useful for me. I prefer the classic style clothing, which is why I decided to demonstrate my look and describe it.

Julia Zinglis said:

- I love French fashion and follow new trends. I carefully studied the leading fashion trends, learned a lot of useful information for myself, which I hurried to share.

Full Professor Elena B. Borisova took part at the International Scientific and Practical Conference organized by Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia

Elena B. Borisova, Doctor of Philology, Full Professor of SSUSSE, took part at the 4th annual International Scientific and Practical Conference New World. New Language. New Thinking on February 3.

The conference was held in a mixed format. For example, the plenary session attended by members of the organizing committee and heads of subpanels was held offline and conference track attended by speakers was held online at the same time. On the one hand, the online format limited the possibility for speakers' arrival, on the other hand, it provided the possibility for speakers' participation from other cities. Thus, the conference was attended by researchers not only from leading universities in Moscow (they traditionally study various aspects of linguistics, linguoculturology and linguodidactics) but from other Russian universities known for their scientific schools. The speakers were also scientists from near and far abroad - from Argentina to China. Oleg P. Ivanov, Vice-Rector for Scientific Work of the Diplomatic Academy, stressed that, the name of the conference New World. New Language. New Thinking became a conceptual metaphor and the motto of this large-scale event in the current conditions.

During the conference, many topics were actively discussed, for example: the issues of Germanic studies, Ibero-Romance philology, Oriental studies, comparative research of languages of different structures, intercultural communication, theory and practice of translation and linguodidactics in online format. During the subpanels related to linguistics and translation issues, there were robust discussions and interesting questions because of reports on the age-old issues of perception and interpretation of artistic, socio-political text, creative use of the target language by translators.

Elena B. Borisova took part in the subpanel "The Language Picture of the World and Interaction of Cultures. Intercultural Communication". Her speech Minimalist Syntax in Literary Translation was dedicated to the issues of transcreation of attributive phrases in the target language. The analysis has shown that attributive phrases are important language means of both explicit and implicit character characteristics. It was prepared with Anna V. Protchenko, a colleague from Samara Polytech, Associate Professor, a graduate of SSUSSE. Then Elena B. Borisova answered questions about the creative use of language resources in a literary text and in the original language.

As a result of the conference, a scientific collection of materials will be published, indexed in the RSCI. So the issues discussed at the Conference "New World. New Language. New Thinking" will soon be available to both prominent scientists and novice researchers.
