Eton Institute, the UAE’s largest language training and professional development centre, is giving language enthusiasts in Abu Dhabi a chance to experience two of the most fascinating languages and cultures of the world and that too for free. Residents of the capital can start their journey to learn the beautiful Russian language with a free Russian language course and experience the heart pumping Italian “Festival De Sanremo” free Cultural Evening, to celebrate the Festival that has had the world singing to its tune every year since 1951.
The Russian language is rising in popularity as it is increasingly applied in different facets such as politics, economics and business communication. It is the 6th most spoken language in the world with around 285 million speakers and is also the most popular Slavik language. The amazing and mysterious culture of Russia has been the muse of many great writers and artists.
On the other hand the Festival de Sanremo is an annual song competition, famous throughout Italy and which music lovers can’t miss. Taking place since 1951, the festival was initially conducted at the Casino and was broadcasted by radio until 1954. It has since evolved into a grand singing event attracting people from all around the globe.
“Russian and Italian are two of the most sought after languages in the world due to their vibrant culture and captivating history. Russia is a truly fascinating country with a vast landscape and beautiful cities, which is why learning Russian will not only prepare an individual for an experience of a lifetime but will also arm them with a language that has taken the business world by storm,” commented Mahina Bukhari Shah, Marketing Executive at Eton Institute.
“Italy is not only known for its cities, food and fashion but is also home to the famous Festival de Sanremo, which is one of the oldest singing competitions in Europe.
