We celebrate the anniversary of Taras Shevchenko

On the 10th of March, on a day of anniversary of Taras Grigorovich Shevchenko death, the Cultural department of the Scovoroda Institute held a tour for foreigners to the Hata on Priortsi. Taras Shevchenko lived there only two weeks, however, thanks to him this house was saved and not demolished during the Soviet period. Today guides have aquinted us with Shevchenko as a simple man, showed writer`s every day life and the life of Kiev population in 19th century, in general. Our foreing students liked it very much, they were interested and asked a lot of questions. Also it was a plesure to see that students have quite high level of Ukrainian language knowledge, and it was pleasant to see, that they understood the excursion in Ukrainian, although we offered it in English. Moreover, we had an opportunity to hear a little native Chinise 😃. So today has been a real international excursion 😊 Of course photo report is added 📷 👇
