On March 29 students from the various institutions of Moscow Pedagogical State University organized an online lesson with students from the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU, USA) as part of the cultural and educational «Teletandem» project.
In the process of interaction students identified the causes of stereotyped errors. Students actively transmitted and perceived information through various means of communication. The practical part was to work with lexico-grammatical constructions, which cause the greatest difficulties for both English and Russian students. The assignments were aimed at identifying cultural similarities and differences, which promotes a deeper understanding among representatives of different cultures.
The lesson was conducted by Associate Professor of the Department of Foreign Languages Hasmik Valeryevna Grigoryan.
The project is implemented with the support of the Institute of International Education (under the guidance of the Associate Professor of the Foreign Languages Department A.V. Grigoryan). The project partner is the Virginia Commonwealth University (USA).
