Description

Overview:
Russian is best learnt when both written and oral skills are taught together within the context of the Russian way of life. Russian culture is, therefore, an essential part of this eight-week beginners course designed to help you learn the basic language skills necessary for communicating in Russian.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream in New Zealand Print E-mail

by Olga Suvorova, Prior Group

“All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players”           (William Shakespeare)
In fifteen years of working as an interpreter I have found myself in different situations: flying in helicopters above vineyards with potential investors, descending thirty metres into the ocean with Russian tourists, checking out gigantic smelter pots with foreign top managers at one of Russia’s largest aluminium companies, supporting fellow countrymen while they were undergoing surgical procedures, and even going through numerous checks from the relevant services in order to gain access to the New Zealand Parliament to translate for the Prime Minister and Ministers. But until today the thought never entered my head that at some point I should be walking the streets of New Zealand’s capital … with the gigantic head of a 6-metre puppet.

Interview with Stuart Prior, former New Zealand Ambassador to Moscow (2003-2006) Print E-mail

April 13, 2014 - 70th Anniversary of Russia-New Zealand Diplomatic Relations

Interview with Stuart Prior, former New Zealand Ambassador to Moscow (2003-2006), Honorary Consul for the Republic of Belarus in New Zealand, Chairman of Prior Group
Olga Suvorova conducted the interview at the request of the Editorial Board (Nasha Gavan #63)

1Q Mr Prior, how did you become interested in Russia?

I fell in love with the Russian alphabet at High School. A lady offered to teach basics of Russian in after-school classes. I went along out of interest. The alphabet was fascinating. Russian language was being taught at the University of Otago. I enrolled for Year 1 of Russian – and was amazed by the richness of the culture and thought behind the language, and the history of Russia through the eyes of my extraordinary Professor, an exiled “White” Russian, Dr Nicholas Zisserman.  He gave me knowledge and insights which have shaped my life and career. To him I have a huge debt which I shall repay as best I can.

Russia - New Zealand Quotes

A country of inveterate, backwoods, thick-headed, egotistic philistines. (about New Zealand) Vladimir Lenin, 1909
Полагаю, мы все были рады покинуть Новую Зеландию. Неприятное место. Коренное население лишено наивной простоты... и большая часть британцев - просто отбросы общества. Чарльз Дарвин, 1860

Russia - New Zealand History

Mr. A. Williams, in the Auckland Herald, gives an account of the visit of British warships to Russia last June, among them being the New Zealand. “When I made myself known as a onetime resident of Auckland and Wellington, I was invariably greeted with the remark. Don't I wish I was there now,” which speaks well for the memories the men took away of our country. The New Zealand was visited by the Czar and Czarina and their daughters, probably because Prince George of Battenberg, a nephew of the Empress's is an officer of this ship, and the Imperial visitors expressed much interest in the many trophies presented by the New Zealand towns, and especially in the Maori curios displayed in Captain Halsey’s quarters. The English colony in Petrograd (late St. Petersburg) entertained the Admiral and officers at a dinner and dance, and in return Admiral Beatty and his officers gave a ball on the night of June 27th. The flagship, the Lion, served as a cloak and supper room, and the New Zealand, beautifully, decorated, was turned into a ballroom. The Grand Duchess Victoria Feodorovna, daughter of the late Duke of Edinburgh was present with her husband, the Grand Duke Cyril Vladimirovich. On this occasion, a haka, danced by 20 of the crew of the New Zealand was a decided novelty to the Russians, and had to be repeated. There were many inquiries as to Maori customs and as to the meaning of the names “Cook”, “Tasman” and “Ao-te-aroa”, inscribed on the turrets." Poverty Bay Herald, Vol. XLI, Issue 13482, 10 September 1914, Page 5
