The Courses project started in 2013 in various cities of Ukraine under the slogan “Teach your friends to speak Ukrainian”. Our initiative, one of the first in Ukraine, provided opportunities to study the Ukrainian language, changed approaches to teaching and promoted popularization. On volunteerism, we launched the first Ukrainian language courses for all those who like, with the teacher in the audience, using the communication techniques, various forms of play.
Each year in 20 cities of Ukraine in September-October a set of people who want to learn Ukrainian and start a study opens. The course lasts 5-6 months. The training takes place once a week for two hours. Classes are held in small groups of up to 20 people. After completing the course, the students receive certificates from the Ukrainian World NGO.
The course platform became not only an educational but also a cultural project: Ukrainian writers, historians, writers, musicians join the educational process. We hold annual events “Mykolaycy na East” and “Book Form on Wheels”. And now we are implementing the project “E-language – an online platform for learning the Ukrainian language”.
