The event gathered lots of students, professors of the Institute and even some bystanders.
Global Talents is an IGUMO project that helps gifted children from all over Russia to express themselves and show their talents to the whole country.

Let me introduce myself. I am Ksenia Panteleyeva, a student of the 4th year, Faculty of Linguistics, and I’ve picked up some hands-on experience to share with fellow treaders on the path of translation. This summer I tried a real translation bureau for a job of a translator’s assistant. It was really priceless, I realized that my translation classes really matter, and, what I am really proud of, sometimes I had an opportunity to check the work of the professionals and even correct their work sometimes - and, at the same time, to find something new I could learn.
On October 6, 2016 Yuri Andreychuk, a linguist and translator, together with the editor Anna Andreychuk conducted a workshop in IGUMO.
