"The opportunity to make a brilliant career and good relations between India and Russia motivate students to study Russian in our country," writes a teacher from India in her competitive essay for the WG "Language without sanctions."

Professionalism or courage is required today for a teacher of Russian studies Saone Saini.
Senior lecturer at the Center for Russian Studies at the Jawaharlal Nehru University of New Delhi, Sauno Saini, says that his way to teaching Russian at one of the best universities in India was not easy, but interesting.

The first acquaintance with Russian culture and Moscow took place when Sonu went on an internship at the State Pushkin Institute of the Russian Language.

After this, the teacher received the work of a teacher-hourly at the University of Delhi, and then became an assistant professor (teacher). This rapid career growth motivated him to work hard in this field. "I mastered innovative methods and techniques in teaching Russian in India.In particular, I created a website where there are audio-video educational material, presentations, books, language games for students - all that is necessary for the successful development of the Russian language in free and open access. "On a grant from the government, Sonu developed a special course" Teaching Russian Language, Literature and Culture Using Computers. "

Today, the teacher believes, interest in the Russian language in India increases regardless of any sanctions. This is due to the fact that there are different opportunities for work in state organizations and private firms with knowledge of Russian.

"If a teacher can not interest students, make them easier to learn, students leave the subject, so I always start the first lesson, explaining the ancient connection between Russia and India." Students like to learn the facts that are shown by friendly relations between India and Russia. "

For example, the teacher refers to the theory of the German specialist in the Indology of Max Müller. "In accordance with the point of view of most linguists, the Russian language and Sanskrit belong to the Indo-European group of languages ​​originating from one ancient source language," argues his love for the Russian participant in the Pushkin competition.
