Students of the Institute of Foreign Languages of PetrSU took part in the annual All-Russian action “Tolles Diktat” (Dictation in German), which, unlike other similar actions, is not called “total”, since this adjective for the German mentality has negative connotations (cf. for example: “total surveillance”, “totalitarianism”, etc.).
Therefore, for this event, the phrase Tolles Diktat (“Excellent dictation”) is used.
This year, the dictation was held in closed groups, only for students of each IRL group, strictly in accordance with the requirements of safety rules during a pandemic. The texts of the dictation, correlating with the levels of the Common European Language Competence A1-C1, were devoted to a variety of topics: from the adventures of Baron Munchausen (A1) to historical episodes in the life of the Volga Germans (C1).
The dictation, organized by the International Union of German Culture and the Tomsk Regional Russian-German House, was marked by a wide coverage of all language levels in the Institute of Foreign Languages: students 113th (A1), 134th (A2), 151st (B2), 153rd ( C1) academic groups wrote a dictation under the guidance of E.N. Vorotilina, 123rd group (A2) – L.A. Ovsyanko, 131st group – E.A. Yakovleva, 133rd group (B1) – V.P. Petrova.
We thank students and teachers for their active participation in the life of the institute,noted the staff of the Institute of Foreign Languages of PetrSU.
