It was possible to write the dictation in three formats: online on your device, on paper by taking dictation simultaneously with one of the broadcasts, or offline at any of the 16 sites in Togliatti. The participants were residents of 500 Russian cities and 40 countries of the world. The text for the dictation was written by Marina Stepnova in 2022. She is a writer, a poetess, the author of the novel The Women of Lazarus, the winner of the The Big Book award, The National Bestseller award and others.

Total Dictation for Togliatti residents was organised in several classrooms in the main building of TSU (14 Belorusskaya St.). The building at 2g Frunze St. was one more site. This event was already the tenth one for Togliatti State University.

- I cannot imagine Togliatti without the university as well as the university without Togliatti. As for me, they are united. Total Dictation is a perfect opportunity to feel that connection – says Olga Parshina, the event organiser, Head of the Russian Language, Literature and Forensic Linguistics department of Humanitarian-Pedagogical Institute of TSU.

There had been 106 participants of different ages who wrote the dictation at TSU.

– The beauty of Total Dictation is in every year changeable authors. They are absolutely different. The point is not in the complexity of the text, but in the case, where we have such awesome, modern authors, who manage to write complicated texts with such easiness especially for Total Dictation, – told one of the readers Igor Romanov.

The Total Dictation results will be published on April 18. Every participant will be allowed to see their grades on the official project website.
