PSU International Students to Taste the Russian New Year

60 young men and 11 girls from China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Syria, Iraq, Senegal, Somali, Yemen, Algire and Morocco came to introduce themselves and learn a bit of Russian language and winter holidays. PSU International Department greeted newly arrived students with an impromptu Winter Holiday Contest. Following the show of a traditional Russian animation short “Masha and Medved’” the international students formed 3 teams – “Feyerverk” (Firework), “Yolochka” (Fur Tree) and “Snezhinka” (Snowflake) to perform joke tasks. The participants shared a great deal of holiday and sweet prizes.
