The department of the Azerbaijani Language and Literature of our school organized an event called “I Love My Mother Tongue” on the occasion of February 21, the International Mother Language Day. Zahid Khalil, the famous poet, writer and honored teacher, who has exceptional services for teaching and promoting the native language, delighted the students by his coming to the school and talked in front of his readers. Students revived scenes from his various works and performed an artistic composition from his poems. The performance of foreign students in their native languages on the stage added brightness to the event. At the end of the event students took signatures from Zahid Khalil and had pictures with him.
