On February 28, 2018, the International Scientific and Practical Conference “Languages of Professional Communication: Linguistic, Cognitive-Discourse, Translation Studies and Methodological Aspects” was held on the basis of the graduate departments of the Faculty of Linguistics.
This year's format of the conference was transformed in order to diversify and modernize the process of sharing experience and information, in particular through the workshops, coordinators of which were associate professors O.D.Dzykovich, L.S. Ivashkevych, N.V. Kosmastska, I.O.Simkova, O.V.Tkachyk, O. O.Turysheva. The range of topics proposed varied from the most relevant directions of modern linguistics (for example, corpus linguistics) to certain aspects of linguodidactics.
The conference raised interest among our colleagues not only in Ukraine but also abroad, in particular in Kyrgyzstan, Spain, France, Germany, Mexico and Kenya. In total, the conference was attended by 159 participants, representatives of leading higher educational establishments and scientific institutions of Ukraine.
