Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

Vera Avdeeva, Institute of State and Law

I was trained to write scientific articles in English at the Сenter for Academic Writing TSU from March to June 2018. Each class, conducted by Valeria Evdash, was a step-by-step development of the basics of a scientific article writing in English. I have learnt about the requirements for publications to be published in significant scientific journals: the structure of a scientific article, the style of a scientific presentation, the current trends of a comprehensible presentation of scientific material for the reader. Besides, there was a regular practice in communication, reading and writing in English. Classes were organized in an interesting and informative way, and they were very effective.  

I express my gratitude to Valia Evdash for her high professional level and to the Сenter for the opportunity to attend such training.
