Alla Podvorchan, senior lecturer of the Ukrainian Linguistics and Foreign Languages Department, claimed:
“Uniting youngsters at such events units Ukrainian nation and leads us to peace, security and prosperity of Ukraine”.

Oryna Kovinenko, Law Faculty student, shared her impressions as well. The girl noticed that even heat did not interfere youth to join the spelling test to check their literacy and national language command.

“Oleksandr Avramenko inspired us all to learn Ukrainian, since he is really concerned about youth literacy. In general, as for me Ukrainian language is always a trend, thus we must appreciate it”, the student commented.

At the end of the test everyone obtained the Certificate of Participation. Soon the results of checking written works will tell us, who are those 3 persons with the best command in Ukrainian. They will receive wonderful gifts – traditional Ukrainian embroidered shirts vyshyvanka.
