Editors' Foreword

On behalf of the editorial team, we present to you Training, Language and Culture – the journal published by Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (RUDN University). There are a number of reasons underlying the need for research journals like Training, Language and Culture that are intended to cover significant humanitarian phenomena of today.

First, globalisation processes have not only overtaken the social and political life domains, but have also engulfed the scientific, linguistic and cultural focal areas. Nowadays, specialists engaged in the spheres of linguistic, cultural, communicative and educational research across the globe welcome a constructive dialogue for the purposes of informed professional enrichment, as they need to be aware of both the conventional and emerging trends evidenced within the realm of language, culture, professional communication and training. Therefore, joint efforts of different national communities intended to promote cooperation and search for beneficial solutions to pressing professional challenges appear to be promising for improving intercultural ‘climate’. Training, Language and Culture makes a viable resource to that end.

Second, the authority of professional associations, educational and academic institutions, as well as the prestige of experts in particular fields, are largely ensured by their scientific achievements which have to be brought to light. Today, high professional standing is not something one acquires only by securing a specific scope of expertise and obtaining practical skills. Basically, it is not just about overcoming practical challenges, but is rather about being able to comprehend and inventively elaborate on a range of related issues, look out for the most efficient solutions, clarify problematic questions, etc.

Third, the key objective of linguists is to study the language as an instrument of interaction between individuals and nations, a treasury of peoples’ cultural legacy, a cognition tool of the human race. And it is this knowledge that educators can benefit from when teaching communities across the world to comprehend language and culture.

We hope that this journal will open a new platform for fruitful interaction of both practical and theoretical researchers and help establish an environment of creative exploration for the benefit of progressive, expedient and engaging science.
