Приветствуем Вас на нашем сайте!

В октябре 1999 года мы, Яна С.Кляйн (Екатеринбург, Россия) и Мерели Патерсон (Калгари, Канада) начали общение через сеть Интернет. У нас появилась идея организовать международный проект для учителей и учащихся средних школ, который бы дал возможность участникам проекта познакомиться с культурой, традициями другой страны. Мы назвали этот проект Из России с любовью.
За время действия проекта в нем принимали участие более 25 учителей из России и Канады, более 150 учащихся. Многие из них поддерживают связь на протяжении многих лет. Участие в проекте дает прекрасную возможность улучшить языковые и коммуникативные навыки, а также узнать много интресного. Участники общаются посредством современных информационных технологий: электронная почта, чаты, видеоконференции.
В 2003 году российские педагоги Кляйн Я.С. и Егорова С.А. были приглашены в Канаду для встречи и обмена опытом с канадскими коллегами.
За время работы проекта канадцы трижды посещали Екатеринбург для встречи с учащимися, учителями и знакомства с культурой, достопримечательностями и традициями Урала. Во время их посещения были организованы мастер-классы для учителей английского языка, открытые мероприятия для учащихся на английском языке.

Welcome to our site!

In October, 1999 we, Yana Kliain from Ekaterinburg, Russia and Marilee Paterson from Calgary, Canada, began to correspond. We had an idea to organize a joint international project for teachers and high school students which would make it possible for our two different nations to learn more about each other. We called it "From Russia with Love".
