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.

On the 23d of April 2015 Shakespeare Competition was held in the Assembly Hall of Kirovograd State Pedagogical University. The competition, organized by the ESU Ukraine, has taken place for the second time. Shakespeare Competition is dedicated to the memory of a great English writer William Shakespeare and is held on his birthday, which is also the UN English Language Day.

More than forty participants took part in the competition.

This year the participants were not allowed to wear costumes or use props of any kind, including music accompaniment, jewelry, items of clothing. Therefore, the task for them was to inspire and persuade the audience and jury purely by their art of Shakespearean declamation. A huge variety of Shakespeare’s sonnets were presented. The audience met all the participants warmly with the round of applause for each of them.  The atmosphere of the event was artistic and very friendly.

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.

National Public Speaking Competition 2015

Category: Information

On Thursday, 12 March, 2015 the event started with the greetings from the Rector of KSPU Oleg Semenyuk and the Dean of the Faculty of Foreign Languages Oleksandr Bilous, who welcomed the participants and congratulated them on proceeding to the Semi-Final. Every semi-finalist made great efforts to come to that stage of the competition.

The Semi-Final started with debate games. The participants were divided into 2 groups. Each group consisted of 6 people: 3 representatives of proposition, 3- of opposition. Five possible topics for debates were announced in advance for participants to have time for thorough preparation. But the actual topic for the game was chosen from five possible just at the Semi-Final. The first group were to speak on the theme “This House believes that the European Union and the USA should have done more to stop war in Ukraine”. The second group debated “This House believes that to be healthy you should go vegetarian”. The audience was completely involved in the debate games. While debate the speakers were asked many questions from the question team, judges and the audience.

After debating students had a chance to present their impromptu speeches. Every participant chose a different topic and had 10 minutes for the preparation. The participants were aimed to speak not more than 3 minutes. During the Semi-Final most of the participants demonstrated excellent skills of debating and public speaking, therefore it was rather difficult for the adjudicators to choose the finalists.

On Friday, 13 March the names of 8 finalists were announced. They were: Bezzadina Dariia, Ilchenko Kateryna, Leonovetz Lyubov, Maiba Diana, Rybchenko Dariia, Scorohod Yuliia, Shevchuk Dariia and Volkova Olesya. At the Final the participants delivered their prepared speeches, inspired by the general theme“Culture is Not a Luxury, But a Necessity”.Speakers interpreted the theme in various ways for 5 minutes.

Dariia Bezzadina, a student of Foreign Languages Department of KSPU, with her speech “Hunger Games” won the National Public Speaking Competition 2015. She was also chosen the best speaker by the audience. In May 2015 Dariia Bezzadina will represent Ukraine in the International Public Speaking Competition in London, Great Britain. The runner-up is Kateryna Illchenko, a student from Kyiv Mohyla Academy. The winner and the runner-up were given prizes from the Rector of KSPU and the ESU Ukraine. Another finalist Dariia Shevchuk got a special award for her commitment to public speaking from a Kirovograd businessman Andriy Tabalov.

Two days of the competition were full of sharing, commitment and inspiration and that made NPSC a very successful event!

Category: Information

THE NATIONAL ENGLISH ESSAY WRITING COMPETITION 2015

 

The English-Speaking Union Ukraine has great pleasure in announcing the National Essay Writing Competition 2015 “My Magna Carta”.

Magna Carta is one of the most famous documents in the world. Originally issued by King John of England as a practical solution to the political crisis he faced in 1215, Magna Carta established for the first time the principle that everybody, including the king, was subject to the law. Although nearly a third of the text was deleted or substantially rewritten within ten years, and almost all the clauses have been repealed in modern times, Magna Carta remains a cornerstone of the British constitution. There remain four copies of the original Magna Carta; one of which is located in Lincoln cathedral, one is in Salisbury Cathedral, and two are in the British Library in London. Magna Carta has provided a source of inspiration and debate for centuries now, and is still highly symbolic of the rights of the individuals and the limits on the power of those who rule.

 

The competition is open to Ukrainian school and university students (aged 16-18) in full-time education at the time of the competition.

Each competitor should create their own Magna Carta fit for the 21st Century, in other words,

to write a document that has the potential to provide the rights that we need for the next 800 years.

It can relate to your specific region, a particular group of people or the entire world.
