INTRODUCTION
The Board of Studies in European Languages (UG), University
of Calicut, has designed altogether 29 courses in the Foreign
Languages (FL) – French (F), German (G), Russian (R) and Syriac (S)
as additional languages for the B.A/B.Sc/B.Com Programmes based
on the outlines prepared by Kerala State Higher Education Council.
They include Common courses, Open courses and Elective courses.
The common courses comprise:
1)
Communicative skills in French/German/Russian/Syriac
2)
Translation and Communication in
French/German/Russian/Syriac
4
5
3)
Literature in French/German/Russian/Syriac
4)
Culture and Civilisation of France/Germany/Russia and
Syrian Traditions (in comparison with Kerala culture);
1)
Four Open Courses designed are:
French for Hotel Management and Tourism
2)
German for Tourism and Hospitality Management
3)
Russian for Business and Tourism
4)
Cultural History of Syria
The Elective Courses offered are:
1. Concepts of Comparative Literature
2. Women’s Writing (in Russian Literature); and
3. History of Syriac Literature.
The new curriculum has been designed taking into account
the linguistic, intellectual and cultural requirements of the students.
The major objectives of the courses are to familiarize the learners
with a modern foreign language French, German and Russian and
with the classical language Syriac; to enable them to acquire
proficiency in the target language and also to familiarize them with
the literatures produced in these languages. The Communicative
Language Courses will help the learners to develop the skills to
read, write and speak in the particular language effectively and
efficiently. The Translation and Communication Courses will
enable the learners to develop skills to interpret and translate from
and into the target language. Besides, by familiarizing with the
literatures produced in the other languages a learner can not only
increase his/her aesthetic values but can have a close
understanding of the target culture. Learning a Foreign Language
will definitely enhance the intellectual and cultural competence of
the learner and enable them to acquire maximum levels of
proficiency in the Foreign Language that they learn. The Open
Courses are mainly special purpose courses (need-based) to meet
the requirements of the learner. The Elective Courses offered
includes the newly emerging disciplines of comparative literature
and women’s literature. The objective of the Comparative Literature
Course is to develop the ability to critically analyse literary texts in a
broader perspective of world literature. This will help to cultivate
cross cultural awareness of the learner.

Антон Павлович Чехов , сын лавочника, внук крепосного, родился в
1860 году в Таганроге, в городе на берегу Азовского моря. Чехов рано
начал работать, помогать семье; Когда учился в гимназии, давал уроки
, чтобы заработать деньги для семьи, работал в лавке отца.
После окончания гимназии Антон Павлович поступил на
медицинский факультет Московского Университета. В годы
учёбы в университете он публикует свои первые
юмористические рассказы. В 1884 году опубликован первый
сборник его рассказов. Чехов становится известным писателем.
Всё творчество Чехова тесно связано с жизнью русского
народа. Любимые герои Чехова – это всегда люди труда ,
крестьяне, трудовая интелигенция . Чехов верил в великую
силу труда , верил в людей труда. Он мечтал о лучшем
будущем своей родины , мечтал о времени , когда вся россия
станет прекрасным садом.
Сам Чехов не уставал служить своему народу. Врач по
профессии , он бесплатно лечил людей, построил на свои
деньги сельскую больницу , помогал всем , кто к нему
обращался.
Жизнь писателя была коротка , он умер в сорок четыре
года , в 1904 году. Но произведения , которые он создал за 25
лет напряжённой работы , сыграли огромную роль в развитии
русской и мировой литературы.

Учёный и поэт Михаил Васильевич Ломоносов занимался

заслуга перед наукой – основание первого русского университета,
который открылся в Москве в мае 1755 года.
О значении Ломоносова для русской науки хорошо сказал
Александер Сергеевич пушкин: “ Ломоносов был великий
человек…Он создал первый университет, он, лучше сказать,
сам был первым нашим университетом”.
