Intro of УкраїнаSpeaking project to students

Within the framework of the educational project #УкраїнаSpeaking DOUNB Library and "Window on America" Center were presented to new comers.
Members of new Activate English Club learned about the modern library service which operates 24 hours 7 days a week through its website and online catalog. Head of the "Window on America" center Svetlana Usenko told the members of Activate English Club about the planned activities to observe the "Year of English in Ukraine" and УкраїнаSpeaking project that will help all who wish to improve their knowledge of English.
Library members were acquainted with the WOA Center’s book collection and learned about the opportunity to use its free resources for learning English: attending Movie club and English-speaking club, access to e-LibraryUSA, the vocabulary board games. The students watched a slide show that highlighted on-line resources such as УкраїнаSpeaking, American English, Voice of America, SHAREAMERICA, English is fun and others.

In the second part of the meeting the participants were offered a funny activity – “Speed English” conversation. This form of training is recommended to practice students’ speaking skills. The members of the group had conversations in pairs with several counterparts by changing their seats in the room. The conversations lasted only few minutes (speedy), but with several different people in a row. This   activity enables the learners of English to practice the same material several times.
In a short time the question was changed and the procedure of changing counterparts was repeated.
The rotation of questions and participants was organized by the librarian. She prepared a slide-show with questions that helped to have a conversation with the topic “Meeting New People."
Number of participants – 34 persons.
