Kharkiv students will receive prizes from the British-based Education Group in recognition of their talents in English, the Oxford Education Group reported on its LinkedIn page.
The Oxford Education Group competition, conducted last year, gave Ukrainian schoolchildren the chance to showcase their talents in the English language. With the announcement of the winning entrants, local Ukrainian office the British Linguistics Academy will recognize and celebrate their achievements in the first official BLA Prize Giving Ceremony.
As part of this prestigious event, held on April 8 at the Kharkiv Academy of Continuous Education, the eldest winners will showcase the British art of debating in a Public Speaking Exhibition, led by OEG Director and Oxford Union Public Speaking Coach Ben Allen.
The motion will be “This House Would legalize the use of Performance Enhancing Drugs in Sport”; a highly topical theme that promises a very lively and fascinating discussion with audience interaction highly encouraged.
“I am very excited to be teaching the Public Speaking Masterclass in Kharkiv. Though I have only been in Ukraine for a short period of time, I believe that there is a lot of untapped talent here, and I look forward to helping the best and brightest of the young harness their strengths and develop them further,” Oxford Education Group Director Ben Allen said.
“Part of our mission is to bring the best of British education to Ukraine, but it is equally important that we show off the best of Ukraine to the rest of the world. This ceremony is a great opportunity for students to display their abilities and a wonderful chance for recognition by an international educational institution,” Headmaster of the British Linguistics Academy, Peter J Cribley, said.
