Al-Jazeera: Syria has started talking in Russian


With approach of new academic year in Syria 18-year-old to Raed Takhan covers concern on the fact that it will study at the Damask university after obtaining the certificate about receiving secondary education, and expects the announcement of lowest passing scores to choose between offices of the Russian and English languages of faculty of literature. "To arrive on office of Russian, the lowest passing score not below what is demanded by faculties of the exact sciences, for example engineering while the office of English demands only high point in the corresponding subject is necessary, and I am afraid that my estimates received at high school won't allow me to learn Russian at the university, despite my desire" — tells Raed in an interview to Al Jazeera. The girl has reported that she already over a year learns this language at one of private institutes, believing in the big importance of language of the main ally of Syria and a huge role which the culture of this country will play for Syrians in the next years. Creation of office of Russian at the Damask university isn't the first or final chapter of the Russian "cultural invasion" into Syria four years ago. Three years ago Russia wasn't limited to military intervention in advantage of Syrian regime. She has also concentrated the attention that she can have bigger and longer influence on the Syrian society. Opening in Damascus next month of the first Russian school in the Middle East will become the last similar attempt of Russia to get into the Syrian society that the Russian media announced last week "one of the most important events in the Russian-Syrian humanitarian cooperation in the field of education. At the same time construction of the Russian school was conducted under the leadership of the president of Syria Bashar al-Assad and Imperial orthodox Palestinian society in Russia. Will be trained according to the Russian training program translated to Arabic. According to the Russian mass media, all this occurs against the background of the fact that Syrians are interested in the Russian higher education more and more, and Russian gains popularity in Syria where today he is studied by about 15 thousand people from various regions of the country. Three years ago the Ministry of Education of Syria in the programs has designated Russian as the second foreign along with English and also as a facultative alternative to French which has a long story of studying at the Syrian schools. According to statements of officials of the ministry to the Syrian media, last year the number of the schools teaching Russian has reached 170, they are located in the majority of the Syrian cities, at cooperation from about 100 teachers from Syria who speak this language. It is expected that this number will increase next year which will come at the beginning of September. The Syrian ministry of the higher education last year has opened the Russian center at the Damask university for coordination of cooperation between the Russian and Syrian sides in teaching Russian
