KSUAE hosted the International Mother Language Day for students of the course of Russian as a foreign language

It was proclaimed at the UNESCO General Conference in November 1999 and has been celebrated around the world since 2000 to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism. The native language is an expression of self-consciousness and the connection of generations. It is closely connected with the history of the ethnos, ensures its unity and becomes a guarantee of its originality: it forms an inextricable link between its bearers and serves as the basis for the people.
