Lingua slam 2021: everything is clear
Seven participants from Russia, China, Tunisia, Bangladesh, and Lebanon fought in the linguistic battle. The working languages of the scientific battle were Russian and English.
In an accessible form, young scientists shared with the public the leading scientific ideas of our time and their scientific research in the field of language, methods of foreign language teaching, and intercultural communication.
Before the start of the contest, the young scientists showed their videos on the topic “Why am I participating in Lingua SLAM?”.
Xu Baoyun (China), the Ph.D. student (the 1st year) of the Institute of Foreign Languages (RUDN University), spoke about the cultural differences between China and Russia. Khalil Mohsen (Lebanon), a postgraduate student of the 2nd course of IFL RUDN, called his speech “The World of Words: a Journey from Civilization to Civilization.” Sara Melitti, the 2nd year graduate student of the Institute of Languages (University of Carthage), demonstrated interesting cases of non-verbal communication in different cultures.
Anita Biswas, (Bangladesh), an applicant for the IFL RUDN, introduced the specifics of translating the names of English-language films into Russian. At the speech of the participant Taisia Alyushenko, the 2nd year graduate student of the IFL RUDN University, the amateurs learned how to increase students’ motivation in online education.
During the scientific battle between the audience, a competition was also held for the most interesting question to the slammer. The winners were Elena Dmitrieva, the Ph.D. student and masters Ekaterina Vavilchenko, and Natalia Lyashchenko of the Institute of Foreign Languages.
From June 12 to June 17, our contestants were viewed on various social networks: Vkontakte, Facebook, Instagram. Fans aged 17 to 50 from Russia, Ukraine, Canada, Senegal, Lebanon, China, Thailand, Tunisia, Cote d’Ivoire, and the Democratic Republic of Congo took part in the online voting. To the question: “Did you like the Lingua Slam project?” all the respondents answered 100%: “Yes.”

The Lingua SLAM scientific battle participants from Tunisia, Rim Hanfir and Sara Melitti, were awarded a free publication in the international scientific journal “Bulletin of Modern Science.” All participants of the competition have the opportunity to publish their scientific research in a joint monograph free. The magic scientific red boxing gloves and the winner’s title went to a polyglot from Lebanon, Khalil Mohsen.
Who knows, maybe one day, thanks to our scientific battle Lingua Slam, Khalil Mohsen will create an educational language platform based on artificial intelligence and, with the help of his author’s methodology, teach his students a foreign language for some days. Is it interesting?
