Department of Foreign Languages

Department of Foreign Languages has existed since 1960 from the moment of the university foundation. 10 teachers including 2 Candidates of Philology, As. Professors, and 5 senior lecturers work at the department. The head of the department is Liudmyla Mohelnytska, PhD, As. Professor.

The department staff teaches English, German & French. The staff works out entrance examinations tests for postgraduate and master courses as well as candidate exams and takes these exams also.

Students supervised by our teachers write reports and make them at scientific conferences held at Zhytomyr state technological university and at other local higher educational establishments. The best teachers' and students' reports are published in scientific issues. Annually the department holds a contest in foreign languages among students of the university. Those who win take part in an All-Ukrainian contest where they also win the first, second or the third prizes.

Students interested in further development of their advanced level of English have a possibility to attend special academic groups organized by our department staff. For those who want to enrich their knowledge in foreign languages beyond university curriculum our department has suggested optional courses since 2001.

14 years ago we started cooperation with U.S. Peace Corps volunteers. According to agreements between our university & the Peace Corps native speakers are involved in teaching the English language.

Since 2011 students of our university have been participating in the scientific seminar organized by the department so that young scientists could introduce and discuss the results of their researches using foreign languages. Since 2014 we've been holding scientific practical conference “Current Trends in Young Scientists’ Researches” for students, masters and young scientists as well. The problems of foreign language studying & teaching are discussed at the scientific and methodological conference “Modern Communicative Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages” for university and college teachers. The results of both conferences are issued in the book of theses.

Our teachers are constantly improving their skills. They rise their qualification at local higher educational institutions, at the university of Kiev-Mohyla academy, at universities of Italy & Sweden.
