«American Corner» activities for February

In today’s world in the era of globalization the question of language and its meaning in society was one of the important state tasks in connection with the processes of self-determination. At the current stage, the purpose of education is not only knowledge, but also the formation of key competencies, which are aimed at preparing students for future life.

Formation of a polylingual person is one of the priorities aimed at internal policy of our multinational state. In order to ensure the competitiveness of the country and its citizens, the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev in his Address “New Kazakhstan in the new world” proposed phased implementation of the cultural project “Trinity of languages”: “It is necessary to develop three languages: Kazakh as the state language, Russian as the language of interethnic communication and English as the language of successful integration into the global economy “. According to Nursultan Nazarbayev’s strategy, national education should become competitive and high-quality, so that graduates of Kazakh schools could easily continue their studies in foreign universities.

There is an «American Corner» in our university where the loads of interesting activities are being held and both teachers and students have the opportunity to attend those courses and take an active part in them.
