The Regional English Language Office congratulates Ulyana Pavlona Shuman on her achievement in winning first place in the “Ingenious Innovation” category of the Create Your Own Board Game Competition sponsored by American English at State. Her board game “What do you know about sports” was created for students who are at the elementary level of English and helps students to demonstrate basic knowledge on the topic of sports. Through play children can revise grammar material, consolidate lexis and simply have fun. The task creates opportunities to consolidate learning in a way that continues to draw their interest even on the second or third play!

Ulyana Pavlovna Shuman is from Petropavlovsk, Kazakhstan and is currently an English teacher at Lycee “Best”, a multi-oriented secondary educational institution with the advanced study of English, German and French languages. She has participated in the Eurasian Undergraduate Exchange and spent a year as an exchange student at Wittenberg University, Ohio, USA. She has also implemented an exciting week-long education program “Astana – Washington D.C. Two Capitals – Two Cultures.”  Ulyana has Bachelor’s degrees in German and English and has also participated in a the German exchange program DAAD in Bayreuth, Germany.  She is a dedicated educator who loves my students and her job.
