Дебати – це те, що мені подобається!

Category: Information

Скажу одразу – мені дуже сподобалось. Наш тренінг почався зі знайомства, і я зрозуміла, що тренери Настя і Сергій - доволі активні та енергійні люди. Настя перша розпочала свій виступ. Вона донесла до нас основи проведення дебатів, розповіла, що це означає і як це робити. Спочатку я була не так зацікавлена в її розповіді, оскільки знала дещо про дебати, але потім Настя дала нам шанс пограти. Після перерви між тренінгами ми вирішили зіграти і отримали таку тему: «Ця палата заборонить демонстрацію іншої символіки, окрім національної і спортивної, на спортивних змаганнях». Спершу я злякалась, оскільки не знала,які аргументи можна навести на підтвердження цієї резолюції. Та потім мені вдалось вирішити цю проблему. Особливо я була задоволена самим процесом мислення, який допомагає мені розвивати себе як особистість і розглядати різні явища з двох протилежних сторін. Я зовсім не очікувала, що саме моя команда переможе. Після цієї гри Сергій розповів нам про контраргументацію. І виявилось, що контраргументація - це справжнє мистецтво відбиття аргументів конкурента. Також ми переглянули відео виступу двох дуже досвідчених учасників дебатів. Завдяки цьому відео ми визначили свій взірець, до якого варто прагнути.

Наш тренінг тривав з 10.00 ранку до 17.00 годин вечора. Важко заперечувати той факт, що всі вже були доволі втомлені, але наші тренери зарядили нас особливою енергетикою, завдяки якій я зовсім не відчувала втому. Я була дуже задоволена цим заходом, оскільки впевнена в тому, що все це сприяє моєму саморозвитку. Для себе я зрозуміла, що дебати це, справді, те, що мені подобається і те, чим я хочу займатися надалі.

Watch the past

Category: Information

Mondays are usually the hardest days of a week. But 20 October , 2014 was different from the others, because it was filled with delightful memories. Imagine yourself walking along the streets of Kirovohrad, but a century ago. Imagine the noises, circling around and the colours, flashing in front of you.

Dr Yurii Mytrofanenko, the ESU guest speaker, created a virtual excursion around the city of Kirovohrad for the ESU audience. Listening to our guide’s  presentation we walked virtually from the Kropyvnytskyi Theatre to Velyka Perspectyvna Street, where the first trams made their way in 1897, from Pushkinskyi College to  City Square, that looks so different nowadays without its cityhall, from Mykolaivskyi bridge to Greek church, where V.Vynnychenko was baptized.  During the trip we tried to recognize the familiar places that had greatly changed. It was so exciting to realize how much the city had developed through centuries.

Moreover, we had an opportunity to see the pictures of the buildings, that were ruined  long time ago. We were amazed  with the impressive architecture of Roman Catholic Church and Elysavethrad Cathedral.

It was a fantastic lecture, that inspired and made a meaningful impact on the audience. The speaker’s profound knowledge on the subject and his excellent sense of humor  influenced greatly the way we perceived the information. Images and individuals flashing on the pictures and in our minds made the past real and  close.

That was a bewitching Monday: without using a magic wand Dr Mytrofanenko  made us fascinated!

Meeting with Mr. Best

Category: Information

During September 24-29, 2014 the ESU Ukraine and Foreign Languages Department of KSPU welcomed a distinguished person, a member of the ESU USA Mr. Donald Best at Kirovograd University. The students were lucky to learn some information about the English Speaking Union in the United States, its activities and plans for 2014-2015 and, of course, the ways of cooperation with the ESU Ukraine.

Moreover, the students were eager to introduce the riches of our region, share its history and enjoy its beauty together with Mr. Best. The guest was greatly impressed by the University Museum of Archeology and the Kirovograd Museum of Regional Studies. The students of the Translation Department were lucky to practice interpreting the excursions which were interesting and engaging. An awarding ceremony of the winners of the National Essay Competition was the final event during Mr. Best’s staying in Kirovograd. He greeted the winners and shared his impressions about the competition itself.

We are looking forward to meeting Mr. Best again.

Summer Debate School 2014

Category: Information

This summer I had an opportunity to visit Summer Debate School (SDS) in a magic , nice and unforgettable  city in Odessa. SDS was in an urban village Zatoka, we lived on tourist  camp “ Gloria”, where we had our trainings.

I learned  the main rules of debating , how  to avoid  the most common mistakes, how to  give arguments , how to be sure during presentation to prove your position and not to worry  while speaking. Daily we wrote cases, learned a structure of a case, divided arguments into strong and weak and knew how  to make priorities  in giving them . Then we acquainted with the methods of  fragmentation your opponent’s cases.

I met  many new people , who became my friends during SDS. The first  three days, we were acquainted with  theoretical material, the coaches for different parts of Ukraine and Europe taught us .We  highs mastered  our debating skills.  Next days besides playing  debate we were to taught how to the foundations , start set up a Debate Club in our regions.

Our coaches Pasha Bogachenko  and  Kurilo  Kozhymiakin presented Uktaine  on the debate tournament in  Zaghreb and won the third  place between CIS teams. I want to thank Ann Khris , Pasha Bogachenko, Alex Sert, Vova Dolnik, Zhenia Ivanov , Vlad Firsov , Vasil’ Komisarov , Misha Evdokimov , Inga Gadiatska, Lilia Poznahivska , Nastia Kartunova for  giving us such important knowledge and experience .

I think in our University there are enthusiastic interested about debating .

We are delighted to announce the results of the 2014 ESU Essay Competition.

Category: Information

Young writers were encouraged to explore the theme How should Ukraine develop its international relations over the next 10 years and what kind of Ukraine do you want to see in 10 years? ” in a  creative way.

 

Congratulationsto all the participants for making this year competition a success!

 

We received over 40 entries from all over Ukraine! Most of them represented the students’ opinions on the topic and their personal experiences. However, not many participants have done deep research and a few essays were inspiring, full of fresh ideas, persuading and logically built. The judging committee decided not to award the first prize, as there was not a stellar essay.

 

 

The second place won Liubov Leonovets , Kirovograd State Pedagogical University

 

 

 

The third place–    Dariia Shevchuk ,Kirovograd State Pedagogical University

The week the world came together

Category: Information

 

Vladyslav Danyleiko, IPSC 2014 participant, Ukraine

 

        Bearing the flag of your country was one of the highest honours through time immemorial, for men both on and off the battlefield. In Western world, up until 18th century,the soldiers assigned to this duty were given the rank ensign.

 

In year 2014, throughout the week of 12-16 May, I was honoured to bear the blue and yellow insignia (Latin for flag) of my country at the International Public Speaking Competition in London, the United Kingdom. Of course, while I did not actually carry the flag around, I had the distinct honour to be the official representative of my country.
