Tuva Writes 'People's Dictation'

'People's Dictation' was launched in Tuva on October 11, the day of the 63th anniversary of Tuva's joining Soviet Union. The mass action devoted to the Russian Language Year was initiated by school-teachers in the Sukpak village. Tuvan teachers are troubled by the lowing level of the Russian language knowledge specially in the deep Tuvan provinces where there are no Russians. Monoliguistic surrounding does not urge young Tuvans to get to know Russian properly. Schools in Kyzyl are overcrowded with the influx of the schoolchilden from Tuvan villages. Their parents know that with scarce knowledge of the Russian language their children won't be able to enter higher educational institutions both inside Tuva and outside.
