Dear Prospective Student!

There are about 5,000 languages ​​in the world now. Of course, not all of them are actively studied; the names of some of them (for example, Sugbuanon – one of the languages ​​in the Philippines – 12 million speakers; Igbo – one of the languages ​​in Nigeria – 20 million speakers) remain unknown to many. The languages ​​that for economic, cultural and other reasons take pride of place in the world, namely English, German, French, Spanish, which are offered to study in our faculty.

You will not just study foreign languages, but become specialists in these languages ​​– teachers and translators. You will find out how the certain language originated and developed, what structure it has, what literature is published in this language. Moreover, you will be able to study these languages, compare them with each other, as well as with Ukrainian and Russian. You will be able to study the history and theory of the world literature. It will not be easy to follow the path of cognition, but per aspera ad astra (“through the thorns – to the stars”), teachers, experienced scientists, fellow students will always help you. So let’s start the journey to the knowledge and profession!

All information concerning the current moments of the educational process (schedules of classes, tests, exams, course programs and needed literature, questions for tests and exams) is located on the portal of the faculty.
