Tri-lingual policy shows results
The policy outlined in the “Kazakhstan-2050” Strategy program to increase the number of citizens of Kazakhstan speaking three languages – Kazakh, Russian and English – is beginning to show results. According to the Ministry of Education and Science, there are now 32 higher educational institutions in Kazakhstan where education is conducted in the three languages. This now involves over 5,500 students. The improvement in tri-lingual education has been aided in the last two and a half years by an influx of more than 3,500 foreign teachers from Europe, the US and South-East Asia.
