On September 14, employees of Tanzanian hotels began studying Russian at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in Dar es Salaam (RCSC). Now that, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic that has swept the world, the tourism business is in a serious crisis, and Tanzania has become one of the few countries "open" to Russians, local hoteliers are pinning great hopes on guests from Russia. The representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in Tanzania has set itself the task of helping Tanzanians to meet guests with dignity.
An intensive special course for those who would like to improve the level of services provided to Russian tourists in Tanzania was developed by our compatriots who have a pedagogical and philological education and independently mastered the programs of teaching Russian language for Internationals with the support from RCSC. The effectiveness and relevance of the intensive special course was tested in August in the city of Arusha in the north of the country. Our compatriot from Buryatia, Bairma Kihoro held classes there in one of the prestigious hotels of the “Serena Inn” system. And now, a month later, the baton has been handed over to Inna Banduka, a Russian lady from Murmansk who lives in Dar es Salaam. More than 20 people attended her first lesson at the RCSC.
