Two interesting events, which became possible due to a desire to fully master the Ukrainian language, were held at the Department of Language Training of Zaporizhzhia State Medical University: a contest of reciters "Poetry is Freedom of the Heart" and an olympiad in the Ukrainian language.
Both events sparked a lively interest among foreign students, as they were able to not only plunge into the world of Ukrainian poetry and deepen their knowledge of the language, but also compete on who knows better Ukrainian and who more emotionally recites poetry.
Associate Professor Kateryna Heichenko, Head of the department, noted that such events are held every year in the department and are always interesting for foreigners. Therefore, many of them take part in competitions for several years in a row, each time improving their skills and demonstrating a great interest in the Ukrainian language and literature.
At the poetry evening, poetry of both classics of literature and contemporary authors was heard. The invited guest of the contest, Zaporizhzhia writer Tata Kondyk, pleased the audience with her own poetry and bestowed memorable gifts on some participants.
All winners received diplomas, and other contestants received certificates.
