The Department of Language Training of the University received a wonderful New Year present from the Administration of ZSMU. It is an interactive projector EPSON that is already working at full capacity. The professors are happy and the students have got a significantly increased motivation for learning languages, including Russian, Ukrainian, and the intensity of the process greatly improved.
"This interactive projector stands out for its features which are so important for the process of language learning", professor Zhanna Rahrina says. "Now we can not only watch videos, images or listen to music, but also use special programs that are provided for improving the functions of creative learning. Having stopped the video any minute, a student can show grammatical structures and change their priority. There are special features that ensure putting the work performed by a student at home on board in order that a professor could correct the mistakes. It is absolutely amazing that the Administration provides the new technologies not only to the specialized departments, but also to the departments of language training."
The future students which are going to study language at the preparatory department will also need the interactive projector. "This projector significantly optimizes the educational process," associate professor Larysa Vasetska said. "In fact, not everyone has listening comprehension skills. It is also important to see the written text, and the combination of auditory and visual perception gives an excellent result." Larysa says that lots of students studying at their department have different competence level, and now it will be easier to differentiate and make their level nearly equal, especially at those stages when they begin to communicate with patients.
Now when the distance learning is introduced at the University, interactive projector will be of particular use at the department. The professors can control and direct the successful course of language training in professional communication, which is offered to students for independent work and learning.
