A tour of the main building of TSU in English
The first-year students of Geology and Geography faculty were given a tour of the main building of TSU within the Project for English-speaking environment formation for the students of TSU.
The students majoring in Local History and Tourism learned how to give a tour, interact with the audience and found out a lot of facts about the university which they had chosen to be their Alma mater.
The guide, Tatyana Litvinova, who happens to be a student of the same faculty, inspired the students to learn English and showed that knowing English is crucial for self-development and future employment.
On the 18th of November 2016 the workshop called “Computer Methods in Geography” was held in English for the 1st year students of Geology and geography faculty (majoring at geography) as part of the project for English-speaking environment formation for the students of TSU.
The workshop was prepared and delivered by Aleksandr Anatolievich Yerofeyev, PhD in Geography, associate professor of the department of geography, faculty of Geology and geography of TSU.
The students managed to improve their foreign language competence in the use of modern computer methods in geography. The workshop took place in one of the modern computer classes of TSU which granted an opportunity for the students to work with special software which uses the newest methods of geographic modeling.
At the end of the workshop conclusion was made, the students could ask their questions and received answers.
