  • The Year of English language

Dear students, parents, teachers.

By the decree of the President of Ukraine of 16.11.2015 № 641/2015 the year 2016 was declared the Year of the English language.
We are inviting the students and teachers of our city and regional schools to get acquainted with the activities that are to take place during the year. We hope for your active participation in the events planned.

The person responsible for the activities in school is the teacher of English Bulavchyk Zhanna

ENglish is the language of Shakespeare and the language of Chaucer. It's spoken in dozens of countries around the world, from the United States to a tiny island named Tristan da Cunha. It reflects the influences of centuries of international exchange, including conquest and colonization, from the Vikings through the 21st century.

Where English comes from

English, like more than 400 other languages, is part of the Indo-European language family, sharing common roots not just with German and French but with Russian, Hindi, Punjabi, and Persian. This beautiful chart by Minna Sundberg, a Finnish-Swedish comic artist, shows some of English's closest cousins, like French and German, but also its more distant relationships with languages originally spoken far from the British Isles such as Farsi and Greek.

English is one of the three official "procedural languages" of the European Union. The president of German recently suggested making it the only official language. But how well people in each European Union country speak English varies considerably.
