Over 60 schools across the country are holding a ‘Day of English’ on 14 December 2016. Students will take part in a Shakespeare-inspired English lesson developed by the British Council, exploring their knowledge of Shakespeare as well as putting on short performances, playing their parts in English.
In addition to schools, higher educational institutions are also joining this initiative. On 14 December 2016, university students across Ukraine will take part in English discussion clubs to debate the role of cultural diplomacy and soft power in times of conflict.
All these events will involve an interactive approach as the participating teachers, school children and university students will be encouraged to share their experiences, ideas and photos on social networks with the hashtag #WeekOfEnglish.
The Day of English at educational institutions is supported by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the British Council in Ukraine. The initiative is being run as part of the Week of English, from 12 to 18 December 2016, initiated by the GoGlobal campaign. Throughout the week a number of activities involving the use and learning of English will be held nation-wide. The Week is dedicated to the official closure of the highly successful Year of English in Ukraine, and is aimed at promoting the learning of English across the country.
