Official Visit to the Window on America Center in Lutsk!

On August 29, 2012 the Window on America Center in Lutsk met  Valentyna Pashkova, the Information Resource Center Director.
The directors of the Volyn Research library together with the WOA Center staff had a formal talk on the subjects that had relation to the work of the Center.

It is always exciting when we have an opportunity to have informative talk about the WOA Center methods of work necessary to move forward.

Our constant visitors, mainly Anton Androsyk, had a frank and useful conversation with Valentyna Pashkova about the use of the world’s leading language-learning software Rosetta Stone and the wide use of electronic books at the Center.

Valentyna Pashkova! Thank You very much for your visit to the Window on America Center in Lutsk!
We believe that we will meet the goal that we set that day!

Learning English is Always Fun!

On August 12, 2012 9 people visited the Window on America Center in Lutsk. The purpose of the Sunday visit was - to try a new way in learning English language while playing different games.
The audience was proposed to play the popular word game TABOO.

The idea was that the visitors have to define the target word without using any of the three words given on the card. The meeting was led by Dominic Huether, a Peace Corps Volunteer, who helped the audience to practice in speaking and free use of language.

3 hours meeting was very informative and effective. The main aim of the event – to encourage the WOA Center visitors to speak English was successfully achieved.

  The visitors showed great interest in such kind of work, so we welcome everyone to join our Clubs and to learn English and have fun at the same time with us!

Exchange Students Meet in Lutsk!

10 students who participated in the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) program during their stay in the USA gathered at the WOA Center to speak of their experiences living with American host families and studying in American High Schools.

Numerous stories, the Question and Answer panel showed how a visit in the United States of America changed the future plans of the participants.

That enrichment activity helped us to increase the motivation of pupils/students to come to the Window on America Center in Lutsk to learn English using up to date information about the United States of America, communicating with native speakers in order to become participants of FLEX exchange programs.
