Recent books for effective teaching and learning were presented in TNMU

A meeting with the representatives of the publishing house “Nova Knyha” took place at the Ukrainian Language Department of Ternopil National Medical University. Kateryna Levytska and Maria Sakharova discussed the possibilities of using the products of the publishing house in effective teaching and learning.

The head of the department Professor Anatolii Vykhrushch drew attention to the importance of didactic films, workshops in teaching international students, as well as the specificity of studying the Ukrainian language by foreigners.

Particular interest was aroused by the teaching aids prepared by the teachers of the Department, in particular, the textbook “Ukrainian as a Foreign Language”. In 2018, the teaching staff of the Ukrainian Language Department (Havryshchak I. I., Drach I. D., Zevako V. I., Melnyk T. P., Novitska O. I., Stefanyshyn K. L., Sheremeta L. P.), generalizing their own experience of teaching Ukrainian as a foreign language, as well as analyzing the main trends of modern linguistics, offered a new textbook on Ukrainian as a foreign language.

The textbook “Ukrainian as a Foreign Language” helps students to master basic graphic skills, learn the most important orthoepic, lexical and grammatical norms of the Ukrainian literary language, memorize basic speech formulas and syntactic structures to express the main ideas and emotions in the foreign communicative environment. This textbook was presented at the Seminar “Actual problems of the organization of teaching Ukrainian (Russian) as a foreign language” at Zaporizhzhia State Medical University on May 27-28, 2019.

A new textbook “Ukrainian for international medical students”, prepared by the teachers of the Ukrainian Language Department (Havryshchak I. I., Drach I. D., Zalipska I. Ya., Zevako V. I., Melnyk T. P., Mysyk O. A., Novitska O. I., Stefanyshyn K. L., Rudenko M. I., Tyshkovets M. P., Sheremeta L. P.), will soon be published. The book will become a logical continuation of the textbook “Ukrainian as a Foreign Language”, but will mainly focus on the materials related to the student’s future profession.

The information was prepared by the Ukrainian Language Department.
