PNU pays great attention to the quality of teaching foreign languages. In this regard the university involves the native speakers in the educational process. Over 10 years the Japanese language has been taught by the teachers sent by the Japanese-Russian Foundation of Youth Exchanges (Tokyo, Japan). The teachers have been working at the Chair of Foreign Languages and the Chair of Linguistics and Cross-Cultural Communication. Under the Agreement between PNU and Heilongjiang University (Harbin, China) the volunteer Chinese teachers have been working at the Chair of Linguistics and Cross-Cultural Communication. In 2012-2013 academic year the English teacher has worked at the Chair of Foreign Languages under the Fulbright Program (USA).
