The WOA Dnipropetrovsk continues its project “Study in USA”.
On May, 31 the centre was visited by a group of students from the National Metallurgical Academy. Their major was “Technical Translation”. The Academy’s English language lecturer Mrs. Oleksandra Myrgorodska is a long-time partner of the Window on America.
The theme of the lecture was “Education in the USA”. The WOA head Svitlana Usenko informed the students about the educational system of the United States and formalities for the students who decide to study there. Numerous paper based resources were presented to the group: brochures of the universities, reference books on majors, exchange programs, tests’ preparation manuals, etc .
The WOA staff member Tamara Gavryliuk has demonstrated a graph about the Educational system of the USA. Several videos from the “Education USA” You Tube channel were demonstrated.
The students listened to the CIS students interviews about the Opportunity Grants. Other videos explained the benefits of studying in the USA. While watching these videos with English subtitles the students practiced their auditing skills, enriched their vocabulary with a dozen of new terms relating to the topic “Post-secondary Education”, and learned new things about American educational culture.
The library books on translation theory, technical translation and interpreting were also presented to the group.
This educational, illustrated with visual aids session was thoroughly enjoyed by the future translators.
