The results of educational event "Total dictation" became available as of today. One of the ROSGEO enterprises – Central Geophysical Expedition (Moscow) – has become an official venue for its conduct. Employees of the ROSGEO holding and their relatives and friends have written the dictation therein. In order to promote literacy this annual educational event has been organized in Russia and around the world since 2004.
Irina Kokotkina, Director of Human Resources JSC CGE, has greeted the participants of the dictation. Central Geophysical Expedition has become an official venue for an educational event for the first time. Participation in the project was approved by the leadership of the Russian geological holding ROSGEO. Stronger interest in raising one’s literacy level serves as the goal of the Total Dictation. It is important for everyone to develop, to perfect professionalism, especially for those working in the field of science. Guzel Yahina, a Russian writer, had prepared a trilogy called "Teacher of Literature" for the occasion. Participants from CGE wrote the third part, which is called “Evening”. The text was read by Grigory Tarasevich, a Russian journalist, publicist, teacher, founder and editor-in-chief of the popular science magazine "The Cat of Schroedinger".
This year, 76 countries took part in the action. Dictations were held at 3,243 venues in 1,021 localities. The largest number of participants gathered in Moscow – 20,014.
Abroad, almost 27,000 people became participants in the Total Dictation, which is almost 10,000 more than previous year.
