Discussion: Russian language in higher educational institutions and vocational schools
Does the teaching of Russian language meet the needs of working life? Do the current teaching materials meet the needs of the reality in auditoriums and classrooms?
Cultura Foundation ordered a survey about the studies of Russian language as other than main subject in higher educational institutions and vocational schools.
It was also important to clarify, how many professionals with Russian language skills Finland will have in the future, and do the language skills of the students meet the needs of the employers.
The study will be commented by the lecturers and teachers of Russian language as well as the representatives of the employers.
The study was made by Janne Häyrinen as a Master’s thesis for Russian language studies in the University of Eastern Finland.
The discussion is in Finnish.
