n aFar Eastern Federal University (FEFU) And Beijing University of Foreign Languages (PUIA) will develop a joint methodology for teaching Russian and Chinese for students of the two countries.

This was reported to TASS by the FEFU press service.
"A delegation of students and teachers of Beijing University of Foreign Languages visited FEFU. During the meeting with the Vice-Rector for International Relations of FEFU Evgeny Vlasov, the parties agreed on the exchange of teachers and students, as well as on conducting comparative studies of the teaching methods of Russian and Chinese languages in the two universities. <...> During the meeting, the university delegations discussed the possibilities of cooperation in the field of teaching Russian and Chinese languages. FEFU and PUIA have agreed to conduct joint research in this area, the results of which will be implemented in the educational process. <...> The plans of educational institutions include the organization of a joint scientific conference on this topic," the press service reported.
Universities have a number of research projects on related topics and perform a similar function of training senior personnel for the development of bilateral cooperation. Thus, the FEFU Oriental Institute was founded in 1899 and initially specialized in the study of Chinese, which was mandatory for all departments. The Institute of the Russian Language was founded in Beijing in 1941 and became the progenitor of the Beijing University of Foreign Languages, focusing on the development of human resources for building positive relations with Russia. At the moment, both higher educational institutions in their countries are flagships for training specialists in the field of international relations and intercultural communication, writes TASS.
"The Far Eastern Federal University is one of the key instruments of cooperation between Russia and China. We are always open to dialogue and are considering new formats of cooperation with partners from China. Today, 1 thousand Russian children study Chinese at our university, and we are rightfully considered one of the key centers of Chinese studies in Russia," Vlasov is quoted in the press service.
