Mission Statement

The Department of Foreign Languages is vital to the social and intellectual life of Kyiv National university of technologies and design. We contribute a crucial component to the university’s efforts to train graduate and postgraduate students for an increasingly diverse world in which communicating well across cultures and competing globally determine success. The department provides students with cultural background, critical thinking skills, and communicative proficiency essential to navigate in a complex global environment.

In addition to broadening your life experiences and your view of the world, studying a foreign language improves your communication skills and cognitive and critical thinking abilities. Also, language study on your transcripts will give you an advantage in any career choice. Foreign language study offers a wider understanding of the cultures of countries trading with Ukraine. Multinational corporations seek employees with multilingual communicative abilities to compete in a global market. An employer will perceive the employee with various language abilities as a bridge to new clients.

The Department of Foreign Languages at Kyiv national university of technologies and design is home to language programs in English, German, French, Polish,  Latin, Russian and Czech, each of which offers a unique curriculum designed to foster linguistic and cultural knowledge necessary to succeed in today’s multilingual world. Speaking another language introduces new perspectives closed off to the monolingual mind, as well as giving students the tools to communicate with people of different backgrounds and cultures. Additional training in linguistics exposes students to the commonalities of human language and experience; the study of culture allows students to fully understand and appreciate lifestyles and values other than one’s own; the analysis of literary texts helps students develop critical thinking skills for tackling issues that transcend national boundaries. Students emerging from our diversified program develop a keen international perspective that enhances the human experience and helps promote diversity in the global village we live in.

Ukraine's foreign policy activation, different integration processes etc require higher education institutions to approach the learning requirements of the international standards. The faculty of Economics and Business provides significant steps toward standardization of training professional disciplines. Of course, to effectively interact at different levels with the international community, much attention should be paid to foreign language education and standardization of results. Today the competence of several foreign languages is considered to be a priori, and this competence must reach a level where the content is dominant over the form, that is, when one thinks what to say, but not how to do it. Therefore, the process of teaching foreign languages at the Department is focused on the formation of the students professionally oriented foreign language communicative competence - the ability to communicate in foreign languages in the professional sphere - and organized by level model. All the programmes are based on the European language levels (A, B, C), adopted in the EU and entered into the system of foreign language education in Ukraine.

The department of foreign languages has been working closely with all other faculty departments to implement the educational process of teaching specialized subjects in English. The pipeline is taking place at all levels – gathering and forming the necessary methodological support in English, retraining Ukrainian teachers, involving English teachers in the educational process etc.
