BUENOS AIRES, July 30 (Itar-Tass) - The University of Montevideo, which is the largest higher educational institution in Uruguay, will teach Russian language, regional director of the Russkiy Mir Foundation Nikolai Mikhailov told Itar-Tass.
“We have almost finalized the preparation to a project to organize Russian language studies at the University of Montevideo, just some technical issues remain unsettled,” he noted. According to the plan, professional Russian language teacher Viktoria Boiko, who lived in Uruguay, will teach Russian at the university. Next stage of the project envisages the opening of a Russian cultural centre at the university, which will feature necessary books, textbooks and materials.
“We can see that people are interested to learn Russian in that country. In the previous year Viktoria Boiko has given the preliminary Russian language courses at the University of Montevideo and right 70 people enrolled for her course,” Mikhailov said. “In this aspect, Uruguay is a unique country,” as the only city in the southern hemisphere, where the descendants of Russian immigrants prevail, is situated in that country.
