English is easy!

The most favourite part in my work is seeing the results of it. So you can imagine that I was the happiest person in the world when my former student and now the future linguist Tatyana came to me for taking practice on the basis of my school.
Tatyana was one of my best students who had got very good results at her English and always took active part in all English contests.
So during her practice Tatyana visited my lessons and conducted her own.We exchanged interesting materials and Tatyana prepared tests of different levels for my students.At the end of her practice Tanya conducted an English quiz for my students and they eagerly answered all her questions.
It's a great pleasure to see how your students continue your work. It means that all what you do is not in vain. 
So, English is easy!;) and my students prove it by connecting their future with this amazing language.
Tanya, wish you good luck in your study and your future profession. It was a great pleasure for me to work with you.

Exam preparation

That is the most disturbing question for all students and at any time.
And on the eve of the English State Exam (May 20) I've decided to give some useful advice.
First of all visit http://www.dpa2016.com.ua/ and have some practice.
So, if you don't want to look like this

or like this 
It would be better if you have a good strategy for your preparation.
  • Prepare your working space: remove unnecessary items from the desk,  place the necessary textbooks, manuals, notebooks, paper, pencils.
  • make a plan of your study
  • Start with  the most difficult material or with the material you know the worst. But if you find it difficult, you can start with the material that is most interesting and enjoyable. 
  • Alternate classes and relaxation, for example, 40-minute of study, then 10 minutes for the break. At this time you can wash dishes, water the flowers, do exercises, take a shower.
  • Remember, there is no need to read and remember by heart the whole book. It is useful to structure the material, make plans, schemes. It would be nice to make notes. Plans are helpful when you need  to revise the material.
Tips for memorazing
  1. Intend to remember
  2. Try to understand the material
  3. Connect new information with prior knowledge
  4. Review your notes
  5. Memorize in small amounts
  6. Don't forget to have a rest.
Remember that practice makes perfect and you'll pass your exam!

Happy Easter!

Today we celebrate Easter, the day of Christ's resurrection.
People of my native town Kremenchug have decorated an Easter tree with wonderful Easter eggs.

"The Easter tree is a symbol of life and unity", says the initiator of this idea, the leader of the public movement Andrei Redkin.And it's really amazing to watch people decorating the tree togather, sharing excitement and happiness on the eve of the great holiday. And this beautiful tradition is already four years old.
Happy Easter, dear friends! Celebrate this Easter with a heart filled with love and peace.

World Dance Day

On April 29 the whole world celebrates the World Dance Day.This holiday is dedicated to all styles of dance, people began to celebrate it in 1982  on the birthday of French choreographer Jean-Georges Noverre.
Dance is like music a universal language that is understood by everyone. It's always amazing to watch professionals dancing:
Even if we are not  professional dancers, we like dancing, too.
Sometimes we start shaking our heads to a lovely tune:
We dance at the parties:
And though our dances are not always successful:
We all love dancing!
Now I want to tell you how to connect dancing with learning English.
For developing my students' listening skills I've decided to use square dancing. My students liked this new and unusual for the lesson system activity. By the way they've got a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the American culture.
