The beginning of the new academic year is a good reason to celebrate our heroic teachers. It is a great opportunity to highlight their courage, excellence, perseverance, responsibility, compassion, determination, enthusiasm,generosity, gentleness, loyalty, patience, peacefulness, tact, self-discipline, and thankfulness, just to list a few adjectives we can use to describe teachers.
This is a time to celebrate and, as Oprah Winfrey stated, "The more you praise and celebrate your life, the morethere is in life to celebrate.”
This is a year full of important milestones: the English Language Office is celebrating its 20th anniversary; Professor Svetlana G. Ter- Minasova's 3- fold jubilee is round the corner; many Associations will mark their 5th or 10th or 15th year anniversaries—there will be many reasons for rejoicing and festivity.
Some people say that Russians like to celebrate in style. How do you plan to prepare for the upcoming festivities?
