Since the beginning of the 1990s the seminar topics widened  ​​- the study of the Italian language was added (research thesis was defended by assistant Natalia Strilets: “Semantic Phraseologisms in Spanish, French and Italian Languages.”). In 2012 A. Kabov defended the thesis  “Category of Hypothetical in French and Spanish.” Olga Kundys is at the stage of finalizing the PhD thesis on the study of Italian language.
