Тhe Day of the First President
Last Friday a demonstrative -cultural event was held at the Chair of General Linguistics and Foreign Philology of Al-Farabi Kazakh National University in the honor of the remarkable holiday – the Day of the First President of Independent Kazakhstan. The event was organized by the leaders of the “English Club” G.K. Dossybaeva and M.A. Zhanabekova.
The students of the 1st course of “Foreign Language: two foreign languages” made a great performance connected with this day. It was the fragment from the film “The sky of my childhood”. The scenery about the history of the birth of our President was very attractive and made a great impression on the audience.A quizzing game and a slide presentation which prepared by the students contained different kinds of tasks about President’s biography, personal life, career ladder and achievements. The question about birth place of our President and the song “Ush konur” produced on the audience was great.
Knowing foreign languages is not only developing linguistic competence, but also being acquainted with the culture of the native speakers. It is impossible to understand the subtle nuances and deep meanings of another culture without knowing its language well, to feel a sense of respect for the traditions of other nations. In connection with this, one of the most important holidays of English-speaking countries is Thanksgiving Day, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Thanksgiving Day has another name - the Day of Harvest, but in this day it is essential to express gratitude not only for the harvest, but also for all that was given to us: health, family, friends, home, happy to be fit and to benefit people.
