They were delighted to join the programme which was topic oriented and included such themes as "Ancient mythology", "Modern journalism". The lectures were delivered by the academic staff of the Department of Literature. The leader of the project is professor T. E. Abramzon believes this Philological Summer School is a good way to introduce the beauty and the distinctive character of the Russian literature, language and culture. All the participants found the course interesting and highly beneficial. They also enjoyed the activities they were involved in.
