Remarks by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at the "Growing Up Bilingual: Educational Perspectives" seminar, 14 June 2018

Ladies and gentlemen, In today's diverse and multicultural world the importance of language training has become more and more significant. This has a special importance for children from diasporas, including the Russian speaking diaspora in Britain. While living in the English language environment, even kids from families, where Russian is spoken at home, lose language skills without learning Russian at school. This is why we commend supplementary Russian schools, like Znaniye.
