On December 18 the New Year celebration ceremony was held at HSE Nizhny Novgorod. Not only HSE students, but also the students from CIS countries, exchange students from France, Italy, Austria and China, and international students of the Master’s Programme in Global Business took part in the event. The participants ‘travelled’ across different countries looking for Grandfather Frost (Russian Santa Claus), and finally they found him.
Language Tandem, a new project at HSE in Nizhny Novgorod, has been launched. The project involves 15 international exchange students, who came to Nizhny Novgorod from France and Italy, master’s students of Global Business from Austria and Italy, who have just started learning Russian, and 15 Russian students from various faculties who are studying foreign languages. The participants shared their impressions of the first meetings.
Students from HSE Nizhny Novgorod prepared a presentation in which they revealed the truth about well-known stereotypes.
Starting in September, a lecturer from France, Anne Simkin, will begin teaching French in the Faculty of Humanities at HSE Nizhny Novgorod. We met with Ann to ask her a few questions.
