Polishing up English in the lead-up to the EXPO-2017 were discussed at the forum in Astana

KAZGUU University hosted a forum in which participants discussed the development of tourism industry in the capital city and the improvement of the English language proficiency for staging an upcoming exposition EXPO-2017 at a high level.

The forum on the theme “Tourism and English for EXPO-2017” became a platform for cooperation between the exhibitors and stakeholders.

Attendees were also taught skills and techniques of specific use of English during international exhibitions.

The director of the Department of Tourism Industry of the Ministry of Investment and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan Marat Yigaliyev welcomed all the participants and addressed to students with a call to learn foreign languages.

– Many universities now turn out tourism professionals. They have good theoretical knowledge, but the main problem is that those experts do not speak English. Trends dictate conditions, and now we need to know more than one language to be in demand in this competitive world. Along with English, for example, it is very important to know Chinese language, – said Marat Yigaliyev.

He added that the EXPO-2017 can become an ideal platform for self-actualization, and offered to the audience to join the volunteer movement.

More detailed information about the international exposition was provided by a manager of the Department of Development and Tourism of NC Astana EXPO-2017 Saule Bulebaeva.
