Oksana Tepla, candidate of pedagogical sciences, associate professor of the department of Romance and Germanic languages and translation, member of the conference organizing committee: "The main goal of the conference is to introduce students to research in the field of linguistics and translation, to develop their skills and abilities to present scientific achievements. My speech touches on the problem of the problem of language as "soft power" as opposed to "hard", a report on the topic "Language as a tool of soft power in creating a positive image of Ukraine in the international arena". The concept of "soft power" is not new in linguistics, political science, and diplomacy. Many influential countries have long used this tool as a potential image of the state».

     Kateryna Lupinova, first-year student of specialty "Philology""English has become a second language for me, I even sometimes think in it. I have prepared a report on how important it is to learn English, and why it ranks first among all languages. English is a really important language, because it is the most widely spoken in the world, and it is studied in almost all countries. I am very pleased that I have the opportunity to communicate with native English speakers at the conference".
    Adriana Lyashenko, first-year student specialty "Philology": «For me, participating in this conference is an experience. I also had the opportunity to cover my topic "False friends of the translator". This is very interesting, because scientists and students from other European countries, in particular Hungary, Austria, France, etc., take part in the conference. Each of them talks about their native language, respectively, their reports are in a foreign language, so I have the opportunity to practice".


     The conference continued its work on breakout sessions in the following areas: pictures of the world in Romano-Germanic and Slavic languages; actual problems of translation studies and intercultural communication; modern discursology and communication theory; modern problems of psychology and linguistics in the present; linguistic and methodological aspects of teaching foreign languages; historical and philosophical thought: world practice; pedagogical theories and practices in a multicultural educational environment. They have confidently embarked on a scientific path, and we believe that participating in the conference has helped them gain confidence in their scientific endeavors.


     Based on the results of the conference, an electronic collection of conference materials was prepared.

     Thank you to the conference participants for their fruitful work, active discussion and scientific interest in linguistic problems!
