A Russian teacher works at the Khamit Irgaliyev Gymnastics School in Atyrau, Kazakhstan, a country where more than 150 nationalities live, respecting each other’s language, traditions and customs. Rusist writes that today we are witnessing the unenviable position of the Russian language in the world. And Gaukhar Azmuratova considers her main task to be teaching children to speak correctly, write correctly, acquaint them with the works of Russian writers, show the beauty, richness, greatness of the Russian language and, most importantly, to preserve this powerful language.
According to the teacher, Russian language and literature is one of the most difficult disciplines in the Kazakh school curriculum, it requires a variety of materials on topics, as well as a variety of forms and teaching methods. And, with various technologies for studying, it is necessary to use a friendly atmosphere in the classroom, love and mutual understanding, children’s curiosity.
Unfortunately, in the era of the development of modern technology, when schoolchildren cannot imagine life without mobile phones, computers, tablets, when nanotechnology is gaining strength, the lively, beautiful and oral Russian speech gives way to the slang and jargon. Instead of Russian words, students use emoticons, likes, which leads to the impoverishment of speech, does not contribute to the development of the Russian language, the Russian specialist is convinced of this.
However, today’s youth in Kazakhstan show curiosity for the Russian language, as it is again gaining popularity in the CIS countries.
However, there is an active policy on the part of the West to eliminate the Russian word. But all the same, those who are actively learning the Russian language stay there in order to read the works of great Russian writers and poets in the original: Pushkin, Dostoyevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Gogol, Bunin and many others. “It’s not surprising, because it’s hard to imagine another language in which there would be so many synonyms, epithets, beautiful turns of phrase,” concludes Gaukhar.
