Meeting with HMA Mr. Simon Smith

Category: Information

On Wednesday, 27 May students of Kirovograd State Pedagogical University had a wonderful opportunity to meet with the British Ambassador to Ukraine Mr. Simon Smith. This is the second visit of Mr. Smith to our university.

Mr. Smith, one of the most open and friendly person I have ever met, started the meeting with a little speech in Ukrainian, which pleasantly amazed the audience and made the students smile broadly. I guess, Mr. Simon Smith was rather pleased with the effect produced. Then HMA spoke about Ukraine and his job in our country. He expressed Britain’s strong support of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Mr. Smith also confirmed the UK solidarity with Ukraine.

However, most of the time HMA left for questions and comments from the audience. Having known that Mr. Smith studied modern languages at Oxford University, we all could not resist asking a lot of questions about languages: favorite ones, tough ones, beautiful ones. We also wanted to know his opinion on what he personally considers to be the most difficult in a foreign language acquisition. And it turned out, that for HMA it is listening comprehension.

Mr. Simon Smith answered all our questions with such enthusiasm and cheerfulness that it was inspiring and almost contagious. He also shared with us some embarrassing and funny moments in his job as an ambassador in different countries. Mr. Smith has a terrific sense of humour and during his speech the audience often burst into laughter. While listening to HMA we were excited to know him as a usual person, just the same as we are. Besides his work he finds time for having fun, reading, playing the piano and trombone, cooking, playing his favourite game cricket and learning new languages.

 

 

The atmosphere of the meeting was very positive and friendly. There was no sign of coldness or restraint, that one might expect from a typical Englishman.  Even if anybody had had any stereotypes about it, they all vanished during the meeting. We greatly enjoyed communicating with HMA Mr. Simon Smith and felt privileged to welcome him as the guest at our university. We are looking forward to seeing Mr. Smith in Kirovograd again!

International Public Speaking Competition 2015 in London

Category: Information

Going to London to represent Ukraine in the International Public Speaking Competition 2015 held by the English-Speaking Union is the experience worth sharing. I wish everybody had such an opportunity!

The organizers of the IPSC 2015 did great job. The programme embraced 5 days – from 11 May to 15 May. During the first three days all 50 delegates from all the continents  had an opportunity to make friends and have fun. The competition itself took place on 14-15 May.

On Monday, 11 May all the tired of flight participants arrived  at the Headquarters of the ESU – Dartmouth House, a spectacular building, which reminded me of that old London I had imagined from the books of Arthur Conan Doyle and Charlotte Bronte. We played “ice-breaking games”, which were aimed for us to get to know each other faster. For example, each respectable delegate had to show his own country with the help of gestures. That was fun: some people danced, others imitated rowing or even kung-fu.

The next day we had workshops, being busily engaged in analyzing famous speeches. The organizers decided to intensify our cultural exchange by including country presentations in the programme of the competition. It was curious to observe our stereotypes break with loud crack. I did my best to inform people about Ukraine and its extreme beauty (in three minutes). Those three days were so dynamic: we visited Noel Coward Theatre to watch a musical “Matilda”, then the Tower of London, the Globe, where our mentor, an actress and a director, gave us acting classes. We mostly walked on foot, exploring London, chatting, teaching each other the phrases in our own languages and learning all the world cultures on the run. Everybody admitted, that those three days created such friendly and positive atmosphere, that nobody felt competitive.

However, the competition was approaching. It consisted of three rounds: heats, semi-final and final. In heats the participants were supposed to deliver their prepared speeches on the topic “Culture is not a luxury, but a necessity”. I would never imagine that this topic has SO many angles, as so many versatile ideas were expressed. Semi-final consisted of impromptu speeches. Some topics were easy enough, such as “All that glitters is not gold”, but the participants revealed them brilliantly avoiding trite and obvious things. Some were tricky, for example “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down”.  After this stage of the competition we had a boat tour along the Thames, which was a bit blurry due to famous London rains. In the evening all 50 delegates were bowling enthusiastically.

The Grand Final was held in the Headquarters of HSBC, the biggest bank of the UK. The general topic for the Final was “To be ignorant of the past is to remain a child”.  All the speakers were efficient and convincing, the ideas were fresh and of topical interest. The winner was a girl from Iceland Alma Ágútsdóttir.

After the Final we took photos (I have never done so many selfies in my entire life!), hugged, and promised to keep in touch. I am grateful to the ESU for that amazing cross-cultural, friendly busy week, which gave me 50 friends from all over the world!

Informative Conversation

Category: Information

Students’ life is not just lectures, seminars and exams, it’s also interesting meetings and self-development.

On the 21 May we had a meeting with a very interesting person – TV-host and graduate of our faculty – Victoria Talashkevich, who told us about the project of the British Counsil for youth – “ Active Citizens”. The main purpose of it was to promote social change and to establish equal relations between people. We watched some information video from different countries-members of the British Council and then each of us had a chance to take part in group work and to express his/her own opinion on important questions such as what community was and if we could pride of our community. We made collages and drew cartoons. All participants enjoyed team-working and took active part in all activities. We were able to hear some interesting thoughts about such serious questions as power, community etc. I think that this meeting was very useful and funny and we really learnt many interesting things. So I hope that we would have such activities in future. Because spending time with friendly company and informative conversation is the best way to really wake up and to tune into work in the morning.

The competition, organized by the ESU Ukraine, has taken place for the second time.

All the participants did a great job, having expressed  Shakespeare’s words with understanding, feeling and clarity, they brought the timeless works of Shakespeare to life. However, only four participants became the winners. Eugen Ivanchenko and Anna Gulak shared the 3d place, Olesia Volkova took the second award. And the winner of the Shakespeare Competition 2015 was the 2nd year student of KSPU Karina Kolesnik. The finalists were awarded with the diplomas from the ESU Ukraine and presents from Cambridge University Press.

The competition is gaining its popularity and developing with newcomers. Thanks to the efforts of all the organizers and participants it has succeeded for the second time.  Through reciting and active listening to Shakespeare’s sonnets everybody had a great opportunity to embrace the world of English literature and to honour the memory of the greatest writer in the English language William Shakespeare.
