Seven students from Karlsruhe Ц from the University of Technology & Economics and Technology Institute Ц arrived to the capital of Kuban from the twin city.

It was the sixth time in 2019 that the delegation of students from Germany arrived to Krasnodar within the scope of the joint project of twin cities. Among participants of "Summer school of the Russian language" are the potential technical experts for whom the training appeared to be not as easy as for philologists, however, the interest towards this project has been increasing year-to-year. This year it is the first time that not only students from the University of Technology & Economics of Karlsruhe but also from other educational establishments from the twin city form the backbone of participants of the project.

Throughout three weeks the German students will be upgrading their skills in Russian and will get acquainted with the history and culture of Krasnodar region and Kuban capital. The curriculum in the summer school includes tutorials, master-classes and lectures delivered by the educators of Kuban State University. Besides, the participants of the project from Karlsruhe accompanied by students of the Department of Romano-Germanic philology and Philological Department of Kuban State University will get acquainted with the scientific library, observatory, museum and laboratory of robotics of the University.   

Karlsruhe is one of 10 twin cities of Krasnodar. The first youth exchange that became the beginning of friendly and subsequently partnership relationships between Krasnodar and Karlsruhe took place in 1979. The twinning arrangement between the cities was signed in 1997.
