UrFU offers foreign language training for children

Ural Federal University announced on Tuesday that it has opened its free foreign language training program for children in its conference hall building.

This year, UrFU added training programs in Chinese, Japanese and Swedish to its previous offerings in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Czech, Arabic, Hungarian and Turkish.

"We were able to partner with a representative of Academic Exchange Service Sweden in Yekaterinburg," Sergey Khmelinin, a university representative, said. "Students will be able to obtain quality advice on internship opportunities and additional basic education in Sweden."

The university's foreign language club, the organizer of the free training programs, opened in 2010 as part of UrFU's Department of Foreign Languages. Aside from language training, the club offers interactive games, debates and film screenings to students and members of the Yekaterinburg community, free of charge.
