Finno-Ugric Studies: Trip to Finno-Ugria: Language and Verbal Culture of the Udmurts

In 2020 the Udmurt Language Summer School celebrates its 20th anniversary. For two decades, people interested in the Udmurt language and culture have visited us from different European countries, as well as America, Asia and Africa.

Over the years, participants from Hungary, Finland, Estonia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, France, the Czech Republic, Canada, the USA, Japan and Egypt came to attend the course. Many citizens of the Russian Federation also showed interest in the Udmurt language, thus we had visitors from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Syktyvkar, Krasnogorsk, Moscow Region and Apatity, Murmansk Region.

In the anniversary year, we wanted to offer you an even richer and more interesting cultural program, but sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has ruined our plans. But not even such an unfortunate situation can prevent us from doing so, and we are ready to proceed with the course online. We are happy to invite everyone who is interested in the culture of the Udmurt people and wants to learn the Udmurt language to the Summer School of 2020.

In 2020 the summer school will be organized online.


the course will be taught using online platforms such as Adobe Connect, Zoom, Skype or Jitsi Meet.
