On October 17, 2023, our students of the bilingual section attended a very engaging lecture by a guest from the Department of English and American Studies of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Pavel Jozef Šafárik, assistant professor Mgr. Július Rozenfeld, PhD, who shared interesting and inspiring experiences from his one-year scholarship stay in the USA with our students in a very ineresting and interactive way.
Our students had the opportunity to virtually visit many places and cities across the entire United States of America, and they also practically tried completing a blind map of the USA. The second part of the lecture was devoted to familiarization with the possibilities of passing the internationally recognized TOEFL English language test.
