Siberian Federal University: SibFU Representatives take part in joint events with Japanese universities

Hokkaido University and Saint Petersburg State University held the round table Japanese-Russian Collaboration on Training Interpreters/Translators and Language Teaching, where Elena Chistova, head of the Department of Oriental Languages, gave the presentation on the approval of the Professional Standard for translators and interpreters developed in the School of Philology and Language Communication of Siberian Federal University. She also shared the experience of combining professional and educational standards for training Japanese-Russian translators and interpreters.

“The School of Philology and Language Communication is upgrading training program in Linguistics and integrating new courses taking into account the current requirements of employers. Thus, within 4 years, we can train competitive translators and interpreters in-demand on both regional/all-Russian and international markets,” said Elena Chistova.

SibFU Japanese centre hosted a meeting of students of Aichi Prefectural University and Siberian Federal University, who study Russian and Japanese languages and are interested in the culture of both countries.

“Within the online meeting, students prepared presentations on Russian and Japanese culture, food, sights of Krasnoyarsk and Aichi, university, entertainment. We intended to hold an online event for students of both universities, while face-to-face meetings aren’t possible. Such events increase interest in other cultures and give students the opportunity to communicate in the language they are learning,” said Irina Shkurina, director of SibFU Japanese centre.

Siberian Federal University and Aichi Prefectural University have signed an agreement on cooperation and academic mobility. The School plans to hold such events once a semester.
