Project Idea
Last year Ukraine hosted a lot of football fans from different
countries. We hope people enjoyed our country, culture and
people. Sometimes our guests had problems because not too
many Ukrainian people could speak English well. Ukrainian
students and EFL teachers did volunteer work to help foreign
people in different situations.
As for our project idea we would like to know about the ways
people learn foreign languages and study at school in countries
abroad. We hope your opinions and suggestions will help us to
change this situation for better.
The Questionnaire
Is it easy for foreigners to travel in your country? Do many native people
speak English?
Can your parents and grandparents speak English well? What foreign
languages did they learn at school?
Do you speak a foreign language to your parents?
Are there any English magazines and newspapers you can prescribe to in
your country?
Are your EFL teachers foreigners?
How many English lessons do you have per day/per week?
How long is your lesson?
Are there any school clubs for those who study foreign languages?
Do you learn English after school? How long per day/week?
The Questionnaire
What activities do you like most?
Do you have pen friends to practice your skills?
What do you think is the best way to learn a foreign language?
What can help us to be better learners?
What can we do to change this situation for better?

Our Opinions & Suggestions
Today, millions of people want to learn or improve
their English but it is difficult to find the best method.
Is it better to study in Britain or America or to study in
your own country?
The advantages of going to Britain seem obvious.
Firstly, you will be able to listen to the language all the
time you are in the country. You will be surrounded
completely by the language wherever you go. Another
advantage is that you have to speak the language if you
are with other people.
Staying at Home to Study
On the other hand, there are also advantages of staying at
home to study. You don’t have to make big changes to your life.
As well as this, it is also much cheaper than going to Britain but
it is never possible to achieve the results of living in the UK.
So, in conclusion, I think that if you have enough time and
money, the best choice is to spend some time in the UK.
As for most Ukrainian people, this is simply not possible.
The most important thing to do in this situation is to maximize
your opportunities: to speak only English in class and to try to
use English whenever possible outside the class.”

It’s never too late to learn.
