SCIENCE AND WISDOM KNOW NO BORDERS
Five undergraduate students of the Moscow State University-MGU took the Intensive Uzbek Language course at the Alisher Nava’i Tashkent State University of Uzbek Language and Literature (TSULL). Overseas guest students have been closely familiarising themselves with the dynamic life of Uzbekistani students in their leisure time.
Particularly, the students of the Oriental Studies Department of MGU Oleg Degtarev, Mikhail Romanenko and Sergei Vdoven took part in a roundtable on national education system of Uzbekistan and its ongoing reforms with the students of TSULL. The students of prestigious universities exchanged views on specific aspects of educational systems of both their higher educational institutions.
The Russian students have been impressed by the attitude of the Uzbek authorities towards the development of the Uzbek language and literature. Remarkably, the fact how Sergei Vdoven excitedly recited Abdulla Aripov’s poem “Men nechun sevaman O‘zbekistonni?” (Why do I fall in love with Uzbekistan?) illustrates his real fascination with the Uzbek language and literature in such a short span of his presence in the sunny republic. The young people’s thought-provoking ideas on the experience of two states in contemporary knowledge, social sciences and learning foreign languages is another evidence that education and wisdom are subjects to neither age nor nationality.
