IPSC 2017

Category: Information

I can never get tired of saying that IPSC 2017 was a small life, every moment of which deserves to be remembered forever. A small life that gave birth to many new friendships and partnerships that found each other across the globe. Distances of thousands of kilometers now seem miserable and nothing of an obstacle.

Being under strong impression, I want to share with you most memorable events of the week which I spent with the most talented public speakers from 50 different countries as a representative of Ukraine in London.

First and foremost, trip to Shakespeare’s Globe was so interactive and engaging that we kept discussing it to the end of our public-speaking-marathon-week. We had an amazing tutor Tom Davey. He taught us crucial actors’ techniques of making a speech your own on example of Macbeth, Shakespeare’s character. This massive workshop gave each person in the group much needed boost of confidence and helped get to know each other better!

Secondly, country presentations of participants were something to remember! It feels as if I can still hear Malaysian violin motives playing in my left ear and soothing Italian timber in my right. During these few hours of exchanging most amusing facts and stories from our lands I felt like I’ve taken a ‘round-the-world tour’. Crossing borders never felt more imponderable and comprehensible at the same time.

Last but not least, hearing the SPEECHES! Yes! Forty seven people came together to speak, and every single person had their own story related to the topic of 2017 – ‘To Define Is To Limit’. Listening to them, my feelings were changing from goose bumps to fear, from compassion to overwhelming love. I definitely recommend to listen to all of them! In our speeches we open unique perspectives on issues common around the world from diverging (sometimes even contradicting) surroundings.

 

I thank the English-Speaking Union from the bottom of my heart for this opportunity to be a part of the IPSC 2017! This competition proves that public speaking gives a glance into borderless future created by us, the up-and-coming generation!

ПРИЄМНІ ЕМОЦІЇ ВІД ЗУСТРІЧІ

Category: Information

27 квітня 2017 року до факультету іноземних мов для зустрічі зі студентами завітали двоє іноземців з Донецького медичного університету. Батьківщина одного зі студентів-іноземців Шрі-Ланка, інший – з Африки. Вони розповіли про їх цікаве та повне насичених моментів життя, величезну кількість подорожей до різних країн та проживання і навчання в Англії та Америці. Така інформація була цікавою та актуальною для молоді, що навчається на факультеті іноземних мов. Особливо студентів зацікавило питання, що стосується життя та навчання в Англії, адже отримати освіту в цій країні є мрією для багатьох. По словам іноземців потрапити до Англії важко, але можливо. Головне - працювати над собою, чітко бачити мету і тоді нічого не зможе завадити досягнути своєї цілі. Гості також розповіли про своє навчання в медичному університеті, про те, що вони задоволені викладачами та університетом  загалом. Іноземці та студенти факультету іноземних мов отримали приємні емоції від зустрічі та цікаву інформацію.

Meeting with the foreign guests

Category: Information

Getting known about the meeting with the international guests, the freshmen and second-year students of the Faculty of Foreign Languages were in anticipation of new acquaintances and interesting experience, but nobody expected this meeting to pass so easily. Hamza and George are foreign students of Donetsk National Medical University, in Kropyvnytskyi.These guys have gone through a long way before studying at our local university. Their future profession is a doctor and both of them have interesting and complicated life stories shared with us.

Hamza was born in a large Muslim family in Sri Lanka. When he was 10 years old, his family moved to the UK. Hamza lived in Sheffield, as small English town as ours. He told the story about his mother, who had had some dental problems in her childhood. That experience led him to choose that profession. But then there is the question ‘Why did he move to Ukraine?’ Studying in the UK is too expensive in comparison with Ukraine.

George was born in a very poor family in Ghana. He wanted to be a doctor for a long time because in his country there is a problem with well-qualified doctors, particularly dentists. Both of them have recently come to Ukraine, and Kropyvnytskyi as a place for studying was chosen for various reasons. Hamza likes especially this town because of its being rather small with a calm life, and as you understand he does not like a bustling citylife. George moved from Donetsk to Kropyvnytskyi because transferring of Donetsk National Medical University here.

Moreover, the guys gave us good advice about learning foreign languages and studying in general. Hamza talked a lot about ways of learning English, such as reading aloud, listening and chatting with native speakers. But in addition, he told us that it would be good to treat learning more easily, divide it into parts and gradually learn it, not just to mug up. As for George he is convinced that in any case education is not difficult, but it isn’t simple too. And whether people do something or not depends only on them. According to his point of view, the main problem of every person is laziness. Their pieces of advice were motivating and can be useful in our further studying of foreign languages.

Besides it was interesting to get know about their experience in studying Ukrainian and Russian. As teaching in the university is only in English, the boys are not able to master them. Hamza said that the Ukrainian and Russian languages were enough prestige and would help in his future work. That's why he wants to learn both of them here excellently. But George wants to learn only Ukrainian. The Russian language for them is quite complicated, and the difficulties arise because people in Kropyvnytskyi communicate in both languages at once.

Though it was a usual meeting, the understanding of each other because of almost the same age gave the lightness of the meeting. All of us enjoyed the way of communicating so much that we would like to continue it further, show the city and treat the boys with the traditional Ukrainian dishes. We look forward to a new meeting!
