The Department of Philological Disciplines Teaching Method was organized in March, 1968. The problem of the Department was preparation of the qualified teachers of the Russian Language and Literature for schools of the USSR, including for Uzbekistan (all the country helped this republic after destructive earthquake in Tashkent) at the Philological Faculty. The Department was organized and headed by A.A.Solovieva, Cand.Phil.Sci., Associate Professor, the Honoured Worker of Education of Ukraine, nowadays Honoured Professor of TNU. At that time the Department was called the Department of Russian Language and Literature Teaching Method. From the date of the foundation of the Department till his death Professor A.I. Germanovich worked here. Since 1972 the Department worked on teaching Russian to foreign students of the University. Those years students from more than 30 countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America were trained at different faculties: Philological, Natural, Historical, Geographical, of Foreign Philology. Many years the Department took one of the first places in Ukraine among other departments which carried out training Russian to foreign citizens. Now the Department is the methodical center for teaching Russian as Foreign Language in high schools of Crimea, and it is the only establishment of teaching Russian as Foreign Language in Crimean Autonomous Republic. Since October, 1989 the Department has been headed by T.A. Yashchenko, D.Phil.Sci., Professor. At the end of 1990s the students from Turkey and China began to be trained, in 2007 – from Algeria.


Teachers of the Department started to master new directions of work: teaching Russian for foreigners-beginners, work with the post-graduate students of different specialities who received education in the homeland; began to introduce new forms and methods of training (computer and videocourses), new aspects (regional geography, cultural studies, intercultural communication).

For 35 years of its existence, the Department published more than 400 scientific works on modern Russian, literature and methods of their teaching at school and higher school. Teachers of the Department actively participate in international scientific conferences, symposiums and congresses. Under the initiative of the Department, All-Crimean Olympiads on Russian for foreign students are conducted. The Department maintains contacts with school teachers.

Sapozhnikova, brought up several generations of Crimean teachers of Russian, wrote together with G.Yu. Bogdanovich a complex of textbooks and manuals on Russian for 5-11 classes, that were recommended by Ministry for Education and Science of Ukraine for Russian-speaking schools of Ukraine.
