“The proper function of man is to live, not to exist” 

Jack London

 

 

              In Ukraine people think that after getting the age of 60 your life becomes dull, you are limited of opportunities and time. But in the USA people think differently: you have a lot of time to discover new countries and cultures, you enrich your experience by meeting new people, mastering new languages and discovering new landscapes.

              Donald Best, a Steering Committee Member of the ESU USA, visited the students of KSPU on 25 May, 2017 to share his life experience. He is a real evidence that life can be interesting and colourful at any period of your life. Mr. Best has an impressive number of visited countries: 40! That is why he is able to compare life conditions of many countries and all the measures are based on his own experience.

              The students of the Faculty of Foreign Languages asked him a lot of interesting questions, the conversation was active and productive. Donald Best said that if he had an opportunity to choose his nationality he would prefer to be an Englishman. He explained his choice because of the safety and beauty of Great Britain. Donald is also fond of art: he cannot imagine his life without theatres, museums, art galleries.

              He gave some advice to the young generation:

              First of all, print photos, it will be much easier to use and recall some remembrances when you are in your “great age”;

              The second recommendation is making notes: try to write down what you are feeling at the very moment.

              40 countries is not a limited number for Donald Best, he has a dream to visit Egypt, China and other countries, which attract his attention by their wonders and peculiarities.

              All the students had a great opportunity to communicate with with the person who can speak up at various topics, explaining everything you are eager to know.
