BIZHAS ISKAKOV, MASTER’S STUDENT:
- It is necessary to take more advantageous positions in the world, become more competitive as a nation. To achieve this, a nation should have some historical, cultural and spiritual foundation. In this regard, I appreciate such programs as ‘Tugan Yel’, ‘100 new faces’ and ‘100 books’ translated into Kazakh language.
AIDANA KATARBAYEVA, MASTER’S STUDENT:
- I support the transition to the Latin script. Why? Because it has some advantages. For instance, the new alphabet will be convenient in IT because the Latin script is used in developing IT programs. The most important thing, I believe, is that it will facilitate in learning English language.
