Phenomenal Interest in Basic English

The DOUNB Library had a big influx of new-comers that got interested in the opportunity to study English in the new format.
The Window on America center offers the library patrons an “Express English” activity that will help adult students to learn the basics of the English language.
Ten two- hour lectures are offered for the patrons who studied other foreign languages, but now need to speak English.
The professional EFL lecturer T. Gavryliuk combines the phonetic, reading and lexical exercises with important cross-cultural information that will help the English learners to use the Basic English in communication with foreigners in Ukraine and abroad.
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. It was a big challenge for the DOUNB library staff to process and accommodate the torrent of the new patrons.  But we did it and thank our new patrons for understanding.
The new patrons were informed about the DOUNB’s resources and modern services.
The first session of the Basic Group in 2017   was a full house. We hope to keep it like that!
Come to get the basics of the English language at the DOUNB Library!
Participant numbers – 111 persons.
Presenter: T. Gavryliyuk.
Pictures: S.Usenko.
