Cooperation within the Framework of the “Kindergarten-School-University” Project

Since 2018, KAFU has been implementing a joint project between the university and the Valeological Specialized School-Complex for Gifted Children of the East Kazakhstan Education Department.

The university students majoring in “Foreign Language: Two Foreign Languages” and KAFU Higher College majoring in “Pedagogy and Methods of Teaching Language and Literature” (foreign language teacher) are involved in conducting the classes.
