It was difficult for the jury members to identify the best ones, since the speakers demonstrated a high level of proficiency in the language, in-depth analysis of the material, creativity, and personal interest in the issues that were being studied. Of course, the results of the speakers - it is also the merit of their professors and academic leaders. Many thanks to them for their professionalism, patience and great contribution to the formation of a new generation!

The conference iTELL this year was full of the high level reports, both in terms of the language and in terms of their degree of scientific character. But what is very significant is that students from different Perm universities also participated in this conference! I think this is very important for our students, because participating in iTELL gives them the opportunity to learn what their colleagues from other educational institutions do and to see their own strengths and weaknesses in contrast, which is extremely important for their academic development.
