Join us for the chat with America House guest Blayze Bishop! Here is some interesting information about Blayze:
"I graduated from Arizona State University last year with a degree in business. Rather than begin my career I chose to take a gap year, which has now turned into a second gap year. Since I began I've visited Central and South America as well as a lot of Europe including all of the Balkan countries. In total I've visited around 35 countries in my life and before I turn 30 I'd like to reach 100. I speak Spanish as a second language after studying it in school and taking language courses in Guatemala. While I am here in Kiev I am studying Russian and hope to reach a beginner degree of proficiency before I leave. That hardest thing I've ever done was summit a mountain in Bolivia at 6,088 meters above sea level, higher than Kilimanjaro!"

No way! You must be kidding! It will be our 200th WE@America House! Of course we’ll be celebrating this occasion. We'll have several guests from the United States here to treat you to a variety of English language games and activities.
Do you have a university degree in a language-related field and/or little experience in translation? Are you tired of only learning theory? We bet that you are ready to practice and unlock your full potential. So leave your cozy bookworm nest and conquer this world with your translator's talent!
Interpreters and translators work this hard and harder to connect the world through language. This week we'll be honoring our translation and interpretation professionals through a series of fun and informative activities.
We would like to welcome all beginner-level English learners every Friday from 5:00 - 6:00 PM for a general English course at America House. This course will cover all the skills you need to improve your communication in English.
