Сотрудничество с носителями иностранных языков
На протяжении 2018-2019 учебного года на факультете иностранных языков для руководящих работников и специалистов учебные занятия в группах повышения квалификации по английскому языку периодически вела носитель английского языка, преподаватель из Соединенных Штатов Америки - Кристин Хан. Кристин поделилась своими впечатлениями о работе в ИПКиПК МГЛУ и выразила благодарность за оказанную поддержку:
«I would like to express my gratitude to everyone in the continuing education department for making my experience so wonderful. From the moment I walked in, all the faculty members have done whatever they could to make me feel welcome, whether it was offering me tea, or accompanying me to a doctor’s appointment to translate for me. I was also inspired by seeing how dedicated the teachers are to their students. They work Saturdays, or double shifts without complaint, and spend countless hours preparing lessons for their students. I also sense that the teachers here genuinely care about their students. I enjoyed collaborating with the teachers and I have learned from them as much as they have learned from me».
Опыт сотрудничества с носителями языка не является новым для факультета. Ежегодно слушатели имеют возможность общаться с носителем иностранного языка, узнать о культурных особенностях стран изучаемых иностранных языков и поучаствовать в межкультурной коммуникации.

«As for the students, I was impressed with their dedication to improving their English skills. I know it can’t be easy for them to come to class in the evening after a long day at work, but they do it anyways. Their eagerness to learn was clear every time I walked into the classroom. They were attentive, and they were very interested in whatever topic we were covering. They particularly enjoyed learning about various aspects of American culture and always had plenty of questions for me. My favorite part of the class was when we had time to do question and answer session, where the students and I could ask each questions about our respective cultures and really have a conversation. I felt like that was the time when I really had the opportunity to connect with them».
Кристин выразила не только благодарность, но и свои пожелания на будущее, к которым нам, возможно, стоит прислушаться.
«My only regret is that I did not stay with one group of students long enough to really build a relationship with them. Overall though, I will look back on this experience fondly and I will be forever grateful to everyone here for accepting me into their school. On that note, I say farewell and I hope to see you again when I return to Minsk in the fall».
