In Turkmenistan, almost everyone speaks fluent Russian. But there is a different level of knowledge of a foreign language, and, having asked this question, ORIENT did a little research.
Contrary to expectations, according to the statistics of subject olympiads, most of the young people who are fluent in Russian as a foreign language are in the northern region of the country – Dashoguz, leading, by the way, in many other positions in the ranking of intellectual competitions of national and international level.
Therefore, it is from this region that ORIENT begins a new cycle of publications in a video format about how the multilingual concept is implemented in the education system of Turkmenistan.
“Now, starting my adult life with higher education, I am more than ever convinced that nothing teaches the world how to think more effectively than learning languages of other nations,” says student Dovran Sahedov. He adds that learning another language benefits each student in at least three ways – from a practical, spiritual and cultural point of view.
