Help in learning the language
The Club of the Abaza language "Alashara" has been operating since 2014. During this time, several courses and circles have been organized for students and practitioners of the Abaza language. For several years now, classes have been held, including in an online format and using mobile applications. Hundreds of people became their listeners.
The organization promotes language learning in other countries by sending specialists to train representatives of local Diasporas. It also conducts ongoing research of schoolchildren on knowledge of the language and monitoring the quality of its teaching.
Educational and methodological kits have been developed for teaching the Abaza language to children and adults. Visual teaching aids are printed for schools; multimedia materials, board games, as well as interactive toys that speak the Abaza language are created. "Alashara" provides financial assistance in the creation of private kindergartens with the study of the Abaza language.
With the participation of the organization, an ethnic component was included in the educational program of kindergartens in Cherkessk, and an Abaza group for children emerged in one of the institutions. Visual materials and a methodological manual for the study of the Abaza language in rural preschool institutions have been developed, it has passed the necessary scientific examinations, agreed with the Ministry of Education and Science of Karachay-Cherkessia and has become part of the kindergarten program in Abaza villages. Moreover, the teachers completed advanced training courses on working with methodological aids - at the expense of the ANO "Alashara".
In addition, Mussa Ekzekov allocates additional funds from personal funds to schools that find an opportunity to increase the number of hours of the Abaza language in the curriculum.
