“Ukrainian Easter in Lviv” April, 29 – May, 10 2013

Ukrainian – interestingly, cheerfully, efficiently!

The 2-week Ukrainian intensive course Ukrainian Easter in Lviv is created due to ALTE (Association of Language Testers in Europe) requirements and has the communicative orientation. It mixes the language learning with unique Ukrainian Easter traditions: Pysanka workshop, hayivkas and Easter games etc. You will have the time to visit most interesting places in Lviv (National Art Gallery, Opera Theatre, ancient mountain High Castle, Open Air Museum …)

There are groups due to three levels: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced. The entry test helps us to check your knowledge.

Lviv has always been noted for its adherence to the traditional Ukrainian culture, and that is why the celebrations of Easter are surrounded by a special charm here. Lviv is the best place to feel the Easter atmosphere. It is only here that the family spirit is present in each temple, on every square and in each street where traditional Easter folklore celebrations, fairs, concerts and theater performances take place. World-renown Ukrainian Easter eggs, embroidery, ceramics, decorations, woodcarvings attract the guests of the Easter Markets. During the Easter celebrations, the annual ethnographic festival “A Great Hayivka (ritual round dances and games)” is held. A few weeks before its start there are master-classes in the painting of Ester eggs – the main symbol of the holiday. Lvivites and visitors of the city can learn Ukrainian spring traditions and take part in the Easter celebration.

Our lecturers have great teaching experience for foreigners and native speakers in the best Ukrainian universities and abroad.

The study program has been approved during several years, that is why it is effective and easy for students. It is flexible depending on student level and wishes as well. It includes the developing of your oral, writing, reading and listening skills.

You can choose the appropriate accommodation for you. We cooperate with some hosting Ukrainian families during quite a long time and have good opinions from our students who lived there. Practically all the family apartments are in the very center of city, about 10-30 minutes to teaching place on foot. You will have a separate room. A simple breakfast is included in the accommodation fee. The sum of about €9-11 is normal for 1 night in Lviv in hosting family.
