  • Description


    Language Center is a part of the State University in Khanty-Mansysk.

    We teach foreign languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Finnish) as well as cultures. One of the goals of the Center is to be aware of the events, current trends of the world, so we accept volunteers from all over the world who want to become an Ambassador of their culture and worldview.

    The center is located in the region of the local ethnic groups of Khanty and Mansi. The University has a club for the study of their languages and traditions, the volunteer will be able to take part in the preservation of the heritage of endangered cultures and languages.

    Since foreigners do not come to our distant region often, each volunteer literally becomes a local star, which is invited to all events not only of the University, but also of the city. Volunteers will be able to participate in TV and radio programs, give interviews for Newspapers, etc.

    The activity of teachers and volunteers of our center is not limited to the teaching of languages. Every time we come up with new activities. We shoot educational and entertaining videos, record headings on the radio, hold cultural evenings, debates, watch movies in the original, we are open to anything new.
