Symposium at Kazan Federal University

Kazan Federal University

This is my first trip to Russia and I attended the symposium at Kazan Federal University. This symposium gave me one important thing that feelings overcome the language barrier.

I participated in poster session after short time presentation to introduce my research. In the poster session, at first, I attempted to discuss using only the words and figures in my poster, but no one could understand my research partly because English is not native language each other. Then, I tried with not only the words but also some gestures and managed to tell even though I was at a loss for words. As a result, I could discuss and get some advice about my research.

On the other hand, I enjoyed Kazan culture very much through the food and the sightseeing. Kazan Kremlin was very very beautiful and I never forget the scenery.

And last but not least, I would like to thank the all participants for giving me the great experience.
