Forging a linguistic link

Эксперты МГИМО: Колдунова Екатерина Валерьевна, к.полит.н., доцент

At first glance one might think that Thai-language studies in Russia is a very niche and perhaps even exotic pursuit.

Overall, every four to fi ve years Russian universities award some 20 bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Thai, whereas the number of Thai students coming to Russia to study the Russian language and get a degree at Russian universities is scores of times as many.

Compared with a constantly growing interest in the Chinese language and a corresponding growth in the opportunity to learn it (language classes, specialised schools, university programmes, Confucius Institutes), pursuing a serious interest in the Thai language in Russia is not that easy.
