Already this March the schoolchildren of Yamal will pay a return visit to friends from the French city of Perigueux. This information was given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” in the regional department of external relations. The event will be organized by the department of external relations of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
As we should remind, the visit of the French schoolchildren to Yamal is not by chance. The upper secondary school of town Labytnangi has cooperated with the Lyceum Bertran de Born of Perigueux since 2008. In 2012 the sides signed the agreement between the two educational institutions, under which active work on fulfillment of joint projects is conducted both in Yamal and in Perigueux. Every year the schoolchildren of the two countries participate in activities of the interschool exchange in Yamal and France.
As it is said to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” in the department of external relations, the French schoolchildren highly appreciate meetings and welcome of the Yamal residents, writing about the visit as about wonderful time in their life, impressions of which will stay in their memory forever. The schoolchildren in practice apply knowledge of French and Russian languages, replenish their vocabulary in the process of communication, broaden their horizons, and acquire skills of intercultural communication and tolerant attitude to culture and residents of other countries. The teachers of the educational institutions have the opportunity to exchange experience of work, to get acquainted with foreign methods of teaching various subjects, what contributes to growth of their pedagogical skills.
Returning from travels, the schoolchildren continue communication by correspondence, exchange postcards and souvenirs. Some families of the schoolchildren continue being friends. Accommodation in French families helps children to overcome the psychological barrier in communication in French. The participants create presentations, photo collages and speak at conferences on the results of school exchanges.
