We invite pupils and students to join us for

the 2019 ESU Ukraine Shakespeare Competition!

The 2019 English-Speaking Union Ukraine Shakespeare Competition will take place on 1-25 April 2019 at  Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University.

The Competition is open for 10-11 form school pupils and 1-6 year of studying university students.


I had a great opportunity to take part in the National Public Speaking Competition 2019, which was held on February, 2 at America House, Kyiv. This year there were 14 participants – university and school students from different regions of Ukraine, who competed to represent our country in London in May. In Round 1 we made videos and streamed them on YouTube, where we spoke on the theme ‘Lie has speed, but truth has endurance’.

My acquaintance with the National Public Speaking Competition started when my teacher Yuliia Myckolaivna Vereshchak told me about this competition and encouraged me to participate in it. To be completely honest, it was scary and so out of my comfort zone, yet, these were the reasons why I agreed to compete.
