The representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London hosted open lectures “Bilinguals in focus!”, which were held in the framework of the educational programme “Bilingual Practices and Pre-School Education”.
The lectures discussed problems of bilingualism, preservation of the native language, as well as general psycho-emotional development of children in a multilingual environment. The main focus of the discussions was placed on preschool childhood. The lectures identified the main difficulties in development of children in the modern information environment and analysed characteristics of additional education in the UK at preschool age.
The lectures were organised by “Znaniye” education centre, which has created its own unique methodology in language education following 15 years of successful work with bilinguals. Teachers and practitioners of Russian-speaking schools in the UK, as well as specialists from the Moscow’s Capital Business School attended the professional discussions.
