Online Lesson with a Teacher from Scotland

On October 09, 2020 the first-year students specializing in economics took part in a Zoom-conference with Felix Adamson, who is currently living in Petrozavodsk and teaching English at Initiative Language Centre. Felix was born and grew up in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. He then graduated from the University of Glasgow, the fourth oldest in the UK after Oxford, Cambridge, and St Andrews. In total, there are seven so-called Ancient universities in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

At the beginning of the lesson, the first-year students told Felix about the Academy and their student life. The teacher from Scotland listened with great interest to their presentation. Then the session switched into a question-and-answer format. The students enthusiastically asked Felix about his life in Scotland, about Scottish cuisine, hobbies, and impressions of his stay in Petrozavodsk. Thanks to the meeting with Felix, they learned a lot not only about Scotland, but also, as strange as it may seem, about Russia.

It turned out that Felix studied cinematography at the university, where he got acquainted with the work of Andrei Tarkovsky. Since then, this outstanding Soviet film director and screenwriter has been his idol. Felix spoke about Russian artists Wassily Kandinsky and Marc Chagall with undisguised admiration.

When students asked the guest from Scotland to give guidance to the younger generation, he immediately replied that his advice would be to study hard now, and to have fun later. Felix is convinced that in youth years, one should spend all the energy to get a quality education and a decent job because later this will give you an opportunity to give the joy of life to yourself and to your loved ones.

The meeting was dynamic, mutually interesting, and useful. The students were happy to meet Felix Adamson and to participate in a live dialogue with a native English speaker.

нты были рады познакомиться с Феликсом Адамсоном и участвовать в живом диалоге с носителем английского языка.
