Student’s research work is a good way for developing trilingualism.

The state policy of the three of languages in the Republic of Kazakhstan suggests speaking three languages: Kazakh as a state language, Russian as a language of international communication and English as a language of successful integration into global economics. The government programmes on the development at all stages of education motivate people’s studying of English. We are also studying English and Kazakh languages through the scientific works. It is one of the important directions in our school’s work. We wrote different research works about the differences and features of three languages. I would like to show one of  the works- Sapegina S., form 4 «B».

This scientific work is devoted to the proverbs about the healthy lifestyle. We chose this theme for getting acquainted closely with the culture and classify them according to their peculiarities. We wanted to find proverbs with similar meanings about the healthy lifestyle in three languages.

Table 1: Proverbs about the healthy lifestyle.

Қазақ тілі Русский язык English language
Денесі саудың — рұхы сау. В здоровом теле здоровый дух. A sound mind in a sound body.
Денсаулық – зор байлық. Здоровье – клад бесценный.. Good health is above wealth.
Ұйқы – тынықтырады,

Жұмыс – шынықтырады

Кто рано ложится и рано встает, здоровье, богатство и ум наживет. Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
Жақсы еңбектенсең – ауызың нанға тиеді, ерініп еңбектенсең – ауызың тасқа тиеді. После обеда посиди, после ужина милю пройди. After dinner sit a while, after supper walk a mile.
Спорт және денсаулық қатар барады.

 

Спорт и здоровье рядом идут. Health and cheerfulness mutually beget each other
Спортқа уақытты тапсыр, ал орнына денсаулықты ал.

 

Отдай спорту время, спорт тебе здоровье даст. The best of the sport is to do the deed and to say nothing.
Ат адамның қанаты, ас адамның қуаты. Кто яблоко в день съедает, у того доктор не бывает. An apple a day keeps the doctor away

 

We can see that these proverbs are identical in their meanings. Finding of  these proverbs was the main aim of the research work. It was hard for her, but with the help of Kazakh and English teachers, we achieved this target. We are going to continue developing such scientific works in our school.

Understanding the importance of knowing three languages, we agree that trilingualism is a need of the globalizing world. We claim that the trio of languages is strategically significant for the Republic of Kazakhstan. Trilingualism as the state language policy is highly important for the needs of our school. Knowing three languages would prepare youth for their future professions, and enhance their social experiences.
