Ukrainian Language Course for Language and Culture Supporters

August 4, 2022

The Center for Intercultural Studies at TUFS has established a system to register TUFS graduates, graduate students, faculty and staff with a certain level of language ability as “Language and Culture Supporters” to volunteer as interpreters for international events and support activities for foreign residents that are carried out by public institutions and organizations.

We recently conducted an online “Ukrainian Language Course for Life Support” for Language and Culture Supporters, inviting Ms. Romanova Valentina, a Ukrainian national, as an instructor for a total of five sessions every Saturday from July 2 (Sat.) to 30 (Sat.), 2022.

The course was challenging as it was taught in English, but under the guidance of the enthusiastic instructor, the students were able to undertake the challenge. The high level of the language and culture supporters means they will be able to apply themselves immediately when local governments and schools request their help in projects requiring Ukrainian language proficiency.

Upon completion of all five sessions, the participants were issued a Certificate of Attendance by the Director of the Center for Intercultural Studies.
