Revision:Zhang Yuntong,He Yuqian,Chexinrui,Patrick NietzscheDate:2018/04/04

On March 30th, the Discussion Forum for the Sino-Russian Exchange Program of SMS (School of Mathematics and Statistics) was held on the second floor in the Teaching Building No. 6. This program went smoothly under the cooperation of CCNU (Central China Normal University) and MSPU (Moscow State Pedagogical University).

Prof. Liu Hongwei, Deputy Director of School of Mathematics and Statistics attended the forum. Huang Fang, the exchange student to Russia last year and Myrat Myradov, one of the five exchange students from MSPU this year, gave a detailed introduction about the program.

According to Prof. Liu, this program has lasted for two years with the help of Prof. Sergey and Teacher Alina of MSPU. “When students from different countries get together to communicate, new ideas will come out. Because people living in different cultures can think about the same question from different angles. We need to open our eyes and understand the way of foreign people’s thinking, which is also consistent with the idea of creating a community of shared future for mankind put forward by President Xi Jinping”, Liu said.

The exchange student Myrat Myradov strongly suggested students in the forum to go to MSPU, experiencing life and study in Russia. He introduced climate conditions, cuisine, celebrities and symbols of Russia as well as programs and extra-curricular activities in MSPU. Huang Fang shared her experience. They all stressed that language problems can never become the obstacle when studying abroad.

Liu Xuan, another student of this exchange program, also mentioned that Russia is not an English-speaking country so that the popularizing rate of English is rather low, only young students could speak English. Thus, he said it is rare to see English signs in the city and his life was difficult at the beginning, especially when he goes out to buy some stuff. But after living there for a period of time, Liu Xuan finally overcame the difficulty. He learned some basic Russian and tried to communicate with others bravely and if he could not understand, he would use a phone application to translate. As time went by, he became comfortable to communicate with others. In terms of what he gained in the program, he pointed out that he not only broadened his horizons but also improved his ability to live independently, including cooking for himself and going outside alone. He used to think it was impossible and unrealistic for him to live in a whole new environment, but now he would feel confident about it. Besides, he talked about the education model in Russia because it is totally different from typical Chinese courses. He put forward that Chinese classes usually put more emphasis on how much knowledge one could absorb, and Chinese teachers always hope the students can grasp more and more knowledge and methods of solving problems as soon as possible. Consequently, Chinese teacher usually takes up the whole class because it can save a lot of time in a lesson. In comparison, teaching model of Russia is featured by cultivating the knowledge-exploiting ability of students and encouraging the cooperative spirit. And in a lesson the knowledge and skills are usually not so much. If you want to know more, you must learn by yourself after the class.    

During the Question and Answer Session, students present at the forum raised different questions actively.

Some questions for Myrat Myradov

Q: What’s the curriculum of exchange classes?

A: Russian schools’ system---how they teach and how they study. If you study math, information, chemistry and economy all these things, you can go as an exchange student to Moscow University (MSPU).

Q: What’s the biggest obstacle you met here?

A: I have been here for nearly a month from Feb.26th. At the beginning, I was not accustomed to the weather, culture and a lot of things. But these days, it has changed a lot. I know more about China, actually I love Chinese food, especially noodles and spicy food, however, these girls don’t like spicy food. They prefer traditional Russian food, like potatoes and soup.
