“Oriental studies is a science that incorporates a whole range of scientific research. This is primarily a study of language, because the key to understanding any civilization is language,” says Igor Abylgaziev, director of ISAA MSU.

More than 60 languages are studied at the Institute of Asian and African countries.  Linguists give the opportunity to understand another civilization, politics, history and traditions.

“Our educational process is tightly intertwined with those scientific studies that are relevant depending on the tasks of our modern development. We promote innovative forms of education while maintaining the healthy conservatism of the academic traditions of higher education,” says Natalia Kuleshova, Deputy Director for Science at ISAA MSU.

Deep knowledge of other civilizations comes through culture. That is why from year to year at the Festival of Science, students acquaint schoolchildren with the customs of Asian and African countries. Master classes on Indian Hindi painting, cooking and oriental dances were held at the event.

Schoolchildren were able to learn a lot about the countries of Asia and Africa at the Science Day festival. We understood the linguistic geography of Iran, learned more about the origin and history of Japanese games, made a virtual trip to India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives, touched the mystery of the tea ceremony. 

All this will allow them to broaden their horizons and in the future become part of the team of the Institute of Asian and African Studies.
