Please note: the in-person portion of this workshop was preceded by online sessions, occurring 12-18 April 2023.
The Languages and Intercultural Dialogue Office (LIDO) at Natolin offered a short intensive course aimed at preparing participants for everyday situations that require competencies in Ukrainian language and culture. The course was based on a flipped methodology of cultural-linguistic education - it combined linguistic elements with cultural context and focused on Ukrainian culture, history, and contemporary life.
During the online phase (on MS Teams) prior to the on-site session, students received materials such as vocabulary, quizzes in English about Ukraine, grammar structures, and pronunciation tips, while the on-site time focused on communication tasks, role-playing, and other pursuits that required reflective thinking.
The course included 7 days of online assignments followed by 2,5 hours on-site.
