On February 21, 2018 students of S. Seifullin Kazakh Agrotechnical who study German took part in the open All-Russian action "Tolles Diktat". The dictation for students of our university was read by the teacher of the University of Applied Sciences Weinstefan Trisdorf from Germany Frau Marlene Mader.
The purpose of the action is to popularize the German language and develop a literate culture in German. The action is timed to the international day of the mother tongue, which was established by UNESCO in 1999 and celebrated on February 21 in order to protect linguistic and cultural diversity. All-Russian action "Tolles Diktat" is conducted by the Association of Public Associations "International Union of German Culture" and the regional state autonomous cultural institution "Tomsk Regional Russian-German House" with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

In 2016, dictation was written by 24705 people, and in 2017 the number of participants was 28740 people from Russia and CIS countries.
