RANEPA students perform with flying colors at Chinese language competitions
Students of the International Relations Department at RANEPA Institute of Business Studies (IBS) have performed brilliantly at the 27th Intercollegiate Chinese Language Competition and the qualifying round of the Chinese Bridge international Chinese proficiency competition, which took place on April 10 in Moscow.
IBS freshmen Lada Sidorova, Polina Nesterova and Roman Moiseyenko showed a funny sketch from student life in Chinese, “Advanced methods of cheating.” Their excellent accent, artistic impression and charm set a benchmark for the rest of the participants that no one could overcome, winning first place among first and second year students of Chinese.
The more experienced third-year contestants, Polina Yevstigneyeva, Olesya Ivanyuta, Aliya Safina and Savely Sultanayev, reenacted an original Chinese standup, “I am a security guard and proud of it.” They won the hearts of the jury and the audience with their incredible artistic performance and authentic pronunciation, also winning first place in the third and fourth year category.
Third-year IBS student Andrei Dagayev participated in the qualifying round of the Chinese Bridge Chinese Proficiency Competition, in which the best students of Russian universities were represented. The RANEPA student demonstrated a high level of proficiency: despite the strong competition, his impeccable performance on the required general theme, The World is One Family, earned him the highest score from the jury. Andrei Dagayev was promoted to the second, national round of the competition, sharing the first place in the qualifying round with a participant from Ryazan State University.
We congratulate all our remarkable winners and wish them further success in learning Chinese and in creative contests! We also express gratitude to their teachers, Yekaterina Kralina who helped prepare the first-year students’ performance, and Juana Lilyana who directed the preparation of the third-year show and Andrei Dagayev’s performance for Chinese Bridge.
