Activate English Group 5.0 started: Phenomenal interest in English study

The DOUNB Library had a huge influx of new-comers that got interested in the possibility to study English in the new format.
The Window on America Dnipropetrovsk center offers the library patrons an “Express English” activity that will help them to activate their passive knowledge of the foreign language and to overcome the fear of speaking in English. Ten two hour- lectures are offered for the participants to improve their conversational skills in pairs.
The professional EFL lecturer T. Gavryliuk combines the lexical exercises with important cross-cultural information that will help the English learners to understand their foreign counterparts better and to avoid awkward situations in communication.
The promotion of the “Express English” at the DOUNB library was supported by local media: the websites of the city news and the Oblast State Administration, even the local radio station.
The new patrons were informed about the DOUNB’s resources and modern services.
The first session of the Activate English Group in 2017 was attended by the WOA’s US volunteer Mr. Kelly and his English-speaking friend – a foreign student in Dnipro. The foreign guests demonstrated to the group how to make introductions and greetings. A Q@A exercise allowed breaking the ice between the Ukrainians and the foreign guests.
The eager learners who could not join the group were placed on the “waiting list” and invited to join other WOA’s activities -Wednesday Movie Club and the “Gabfest” Speaking Club on Saturdays.
Improve you English language skills at the DOUNB Library!
Number of participants – 152 persons.
