The bill, which will make it necessary for migrants to pass a Russian language exam, is found under consideration by deputies of State Duma now. According to the bill foreigners will have to prove the knowledge of Russian language documentarily in order to get the permit for work in sphere of housing-communal services, trade and service sphere. At present time more than 160 centers, having the right to teach foreign citizens Russian language, already work under Russian and foreign institutes.

The deputy of the State Council RB, the rector of the Bashkir State Pedagogical University Rail Asadullin says that the conditions, necessary for realization of this project, are available in Bashkortostan.

“People, who arrive in a foreign country, have to know language and culture of this land’ – the rector says – “As for the education system, it is fully ready to make this project a reality. Every institute has sub-institutes of additional education and specialists for that. Here it is important to solve the problem of financing for this project: who will pay to the pedagogues, working with migrants. If this problem is solved, republican education system is ready to launch the project any moment”.

Rail Asadullin has also mentioned that the system for teaching foreigners Russian language partially works in our Republic.

“We were discussing this problem with the heads of national cultural centers many times’ – the deputy reported – “Thus, Sunday schools work in the Republic for already several years on the base of these centers, so we may say that this work is already running here”.
