The new project starts as part of the Year of Native Languages and National Unity. “This is the beginning of a lot of work, which we have identified as a priority,” said Mayor. – I hope that all this will serve to preserve the native languages, including the Tatar language. We will set a good example for our children and youth and will do our best so that the languages of all peoples of multinational Tatarstan not only survive, but also develop. ”
Thanks to the videos, the townspeople will be able to learn simple phrases in the Tatar language, in particular, they will learn new addresses, turns of speech. All videos are focused on the initial level of the Tatar language and will be of interest to both children and adults, the authors of the project assure.
