  • It was on the 19th of April in 2016. The theme of the lesson was “Famous Ukrainian Painters.” For the lesson we had our homework to make projects in a form of reports or computer presentations about our favourite Ukrainian painters. We practiced English all the lesson long and got a lot of pleasure while speaking English and developing fluency. Our teacher Liudmyla Pavlivna Falko started the lesson with greeting and creating positive atmosphere. In chain we told her how we felt at that moment, most of the pupils felt confident and happy because we prepared for the lesson very well. The motto of the lesson was “The master derives from his art.” Our teacher likes to use a lot of proverbs on the lesson and we recollected all the quotations about art. The teacher gave us reproductions of the paintings of famous Ukrainian artists and asked us to tell what had been depicted on the pictures. Each of us showed the picture to the classmates described it. Then we lined-up alphabetically by the surname of the painter who had depicted the picture. After that we discussed the artistic traditions in Ukraine while playing favorite kind of activity, called “Interaction Lines.” For this game the teacher prepares cards. We stand in two rows facing each other. The pupils in one row ask the question on the card, given to each pupil by the teacher, all speaking at the same time. Each partner/standing opposite answers. (If he or she can’t answer, the student who asked helps provides an answer.) Then all answerers move one position to the left, so the each student faces a new partner. The student without a partner moves down the center aisle to the far position of the answerers’ line. Each asker asks the new partner the same question. Again answerers rotate. The activity continues until we have asked our question of every pupil in the answerers’ row. Then we presented our projects to each other. Personally I prepared computer presentation about Ivan Aivazovsky. During the lesson we deepened and shared our knowledge about Ukrainian artists. I am interested in painting because I am crazy about this kind of activity, that’s why the topic of the lesson was very useful for me; it developed my cultural competence and broaden my mind. I realize that art enriches my inner world, forms my outlook and even helps to overcome difficulties in life. As the proverb says “Art washes away from the soul the dust on everyday life.” Then we presentid our projects to each other. Personally I prepared computer presentation about Ivan Aivazovsky.
