In the Eurasian National University named after L.N. Gumilyov on October 4, 2017, there took place the ceremonial opening of the International Student Olympiad in Russian literature dedicated to the 145th anniversary of the Moscow State Pedagogical University.

Gumilyov, headed by Doctor of Philology, Professor Kadisha Rustembekovna Nurgali, together with the Department of Russian Literature of MSPU conduct an active scientific activity, involving in their creativity and students.
During the two-year period of the commonwealth, following the signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation, a number of activities were carried out:
International student scientific and practical conferences, a scientific project to publish a collective monograph on topical problems of Russian literary criticism. This project is developing successfully.
Within the framework of the International Student Olympyad on the Russian Literature, which took its start in Astana, there was a competition for the best creative work - the essay on the theme "EXPO-2017: new opportunities for the development of my country" with the participation of students of non-linguistic specialties.
Such events not only bring together students from different countries, but also help to jointly solve the problems of youth. Among the participants are students of 1-3 courses of seven faculties of the university. The organizers of this Olympiad are the two leading partner universities of the two countries - Kazakhstan and Russia. Eurasian National University named after L.N. Gumilyov and Moscow State Pedagogical University are among the ranking universities in the post-Soviet space, which have great scientific potential.

The joyful patriotic note in a celebration was brought by display of the video about EXPO-2017 with participation of students of our university. This patriotic mood was picked up by the following participants in the opening of the Olympyad. Their performance was particularly emotional. After all, they are direct participants of EXPO-2017, which for a long time worked as specialists and volunteers at this exhibition. The guys shared their impressions of new acquaintances from among foreign guests and exhibitors. Students unanimously admitted that they had acquired valuable experience of business communication with foreigners. Besides they could check themselves for practical knowledge of the learned foreign language. So, Akkazenov Alisher, a 3rd-year student of the specialty "Foreign Language", greeted the participants of the Olympiad and shared his impressions in four languages, surprising the listeners with his excellent English and Spanish languages skills.
