Ostroh Academy students and members of teaching staff did a dictation
November 07, 2012
On 7 November, on the eve of the Language Day, Ostroh Academy students and teaching staff did a Ukrainian dictation.
Vasyl Zhukovskyi, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, was among those who had to recollect Ukrainian orthographic rules together with students. According to Mr. Zhukovskyi, actions like this unite people and bring back the untroubled times.
The dictation titled The First Ukrainian Hetman by Mykhailo Slaboshpytskyi was very symbolic. Larysa Minich, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Senior Lecturer of the Department of the Ukrainian Language and Literature, is convinced that this character is very tightly connected to Ostroh Academy, because Dmytro Vyshnevetskyi was actually in love with Halshka Ostrozka.
By no means will the results of the dictation influence the marks and overall progress record of both the students and members of the teaching staff. The results will be in percentage terms, so the majority of those who did the dictation decided to hand in their papers unsigned.
