I express my gratitude for the support and the opportunity to study at a foreign university for the rector of the University Zhubanov Bauyrzhan Erdembekov and the Confucius Institute,” noted she.
Aczerip acquainted participants with the features of the education system in China. “In China, much attention is paid to practical exercises. Thematic discussions in practical classes, various group tasks make the work of learning more diverse and interesting, so students can share their critical reviews and discover the meaning of the topic themselves. As a homework assignment, each student needs to share with daily world news. As in our education system, students take current and final exams. The International Institute of Education conducts excursions in local museums and acquaintance with the culture of China in order to popularize the leisure of foreign students. We also participated in the study of traditional Chinese martial art of wushu and Chinese writing. The program of academic mobility allowed us to not only exchange knowledge and experience abroad, but also to be acquainted with the culture of another country, adapt to the new language environment and make good friends. ”
