On the 31st of October 2016 the lecturers of the Institute of international relations, history and oriental studies together with the students of the institute of Environmental Sciences organized a wonderful festival, devoted to the celebration of Halloween. Students prepared interesting presentations on the topic of the meeting, each team brought a pumpkin designed in the way they liked and took part in a number of contests organized by the lecturers. The best students and teams were awarded diplomas in 3 nominations: “the best presentation”, “the most creative approach” and “active participation”. Moreover all of the participants were given sweet treats. Such an unusual way to practice English was welcomed by the students with great enthusiasm. Both lecturers and students agreed on organizing such kind of a festival again in December to celebrate Christmas.
