Impressions with a photo report.
This summer the students of the School of Foreign Languages as part of a group of students from Kharkiv and Kyiv under the guidance of the Associate Professor of the Department of Foreign Philology Olena Shpak undertook an internship in Great Britain where they spent two unforgettable weeks in Scotland, in one of the most interesting cities of the Kingdom, Edinburgh.
The training was provided at a high level in Kaplan English School in Edinburgh accredited by the British Council. In addition to classes, the students engaged a variety of activities that improved their English language skills, got to know the culture of Scotland, got acquainted with students from other countries, communicated with native speakers.
In Scotland, 2017 is called the year of history, heritage and archeology, and therefore, the diligent preparation for the date was under way in the country. In addition, the annual world known Fringe Festival, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, is the brightest event in Edinburgh in August. This is a large-scale show on Edinburgh's main historic street, Royal Mile, as well as cinema, shows, fairs, museums, exhibits, performances by musicians, poets, scientists, actors, comedians, choirs all over the city (for example, The Royal Tattoo Military Show in Edinburg Castle, Edinburg Art Festival, Wigtown Book Festival, Edinburgh International Festival of Music and Drama, Famous Scotts from the Past Exhibition, The Endurance Antarctic Adventure Exhibition), to name a few.
The students also enjoyed a journey to the largest and most beautiful in Scotland Lake Loch Lomond, Sterling city, a glorious historically significant for all Scots, a rock climbing tour to Arthur's Seat.
This August has left positive impressions forever.
