“Everyone truly wants you to succeed”

"The most valuable lesson I learned at LCC is that people are the most valuable asset in every organization. Having talked to many alumni, they always said that people are what creates the real LCC experience, and now looking back, I couldn’t agree more. It is our amazing staff and faculty who share common values and help us grow not only as professionals but also individuals, and it is the students who later become your second family. It has taught me to care about each person I work or interact with. I believe that LCC is the place where you can create the experience you want. You can always find the right people to help you implement even the craziest idea or project and also find the resources to get it done. Appreciate that at LCC everyone truly wants you to succeed."

Gevorg Hayrapetian: Marking the Senior year as the president of StuCo

2021-09-01

Say hi to Gevorg Hayrapetian! He’s a Senior from Armenia majoring in Business Administration, and he leaves an important mark by being the president of the Student Council (StuCo) for the 2021-2022 academic year.Gevorg’s journey to LCC began a few years ago. Having graduated from high school which operated in English, the young man was involved with EducationUSA and was working with Armenian students looking for education opportunities abroad. After an ordinary university fair, Gevorg, being a prospective student himself, received a brochure from LCC with an invitation to apply. The Armenian student admits that he didn’t plan to be in Europe for a few years - but LCC’s international dimension coupled with Gevorg knowing some of the Armenian students at LCC resulted in the unexpected decision to apply. ‘The last years of high-school were in English, and I was looking for a university where I would be studying in English, too. I wanted to be a part of an international community. After talking with the LCC students that I knew, it was clear for me that I should apply.’The future StuCo president made the decision to study Business Administration. He says he’s always appreciated design, branding marketing, and wanted to start his own business for a long time. While at LCC, these dreams started to come true! After the Freshman year, Gevorg didn’t participate in Work & Travel, but went back to Armenia instead. There, he worked at ARLOOPA, a studio that developed VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality) games and entertainment. While at ARLOOPA, Gevorg worked with project management and marketing, and even led a small start-up. Although the initiative had to be left behind when Gevorg returned to LCC in Fall, in Lithuania he committed himself to another start up ‘Brand Factory’. Here, the Armenian did clothing design and worked with Lithuanian businesses to produce the clothes.As the StuCo president, Gevorg and his colleagues were hard at work the whole summer preparing for the academic year. ‘It all comes down to who you work with. We have an amazing team this year, and we’ll be announcing what we’ve been cooking during the first week of September. I’m really excited!’. Gevorg looks long-term. He wants to create something that will last not only for the 2021-2022 academic year, but beyond as well. StuCo wants to lay the foundation for an expanded Student Constitution, policies and the general culture that would be used by future Student Council teams. ‘We want to update the policies because we put a great deal of attention to transparent communication’. StuCo is also expanding beyond LCC and will have a bigger presence together with the Student Councils of other institutions of higher education, where the new External Relations Officer will help. ‘The goals are big, but possible to achieve’.What is the post-LCC future for the StuCo president from Armenia? ‘After graduation, I will most likely stay in Lithuania, hopefully with a work opportunity, and hopefully still in Klaipėda! I love this city and the nature around.'

Luan Chau: "My pursuit of the MA TESOL at LCC is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life"

2021-08-19

Say hi to Luan! He is a recent MA graduate from Vietnam, who completed his degree a week ago in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Let's take a glimpse at his journey at LCC!Luan was browsing the internet for some recommended MA programs in TESOL and found LCC for the first time. When he applied for the MA TESOL at LCC, Luan had already been working on his first MA in psycholinguistics in Norway. Why did he feel studying TESOL at LCC might be the right choice for him? "My first MA in psycholinguistics taught me a lot about how to become a competent linguist but prepared me very little for becoming a competent language teacher – which was my dream job. At that time, my dream of becoming a teacher helped me make up my mind to sign up for the course," shares the graduate."My pursuit of the MA TESOL at LCC is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life," says Luan. The program has many benefits that other programs cannot compete with. First, Luan says, he had the chance to experience high-quality hybrid learning, which combined both on-site learning and online study. At first, he was worried that online learning was something that he would not prefer. However, at LCC, the professors are caring and supportive towards students even online. "I could learn a lot in a short period of time and interact well with my classmates via useful activities and discussion. I could also work with my schedule." Second, the MA TESOL program at LCC consists of several courses that helped him to improve not only his second language pedagogy but also his skills in curriculum development, assessing learners’ spoken and written language, implementing action research in his classroom, managing a language program, and developing his expertise in second language research. When it comes to the courses, Luan had a hard time picking a favorite. "If I had to pick one, I would say the Action Research course taught by Prof. Doreen Ewert may be my favorite. The course helped me realize that there is nothing that is out of the control of the teacher. Every problem in our classroom has a solution. On top of that, I learned to improve learners’ autonomy and motivation for learning languages.” Another highlighted course for him was “Teaching English as an International Language” taught by Prof. Aliel Cunningham. "After this course, I realized the mission of a language teacher extends the teaching of the language and also includes cultivating hospitality and respect in our classroom. We are more than just language teachers, we are also ambassadors of peace."Luan also had his teaching practicum at LCC. "My practicum was one of my best experiences at LCC. I had the opportunity to teach at the Summer Language Institute (SLI) – a language program at LCC that is intended for teenagers and young adults." He also taught at the English summer camp for teenagers just after SLI. "I have a lot of beautiful memories with my students and kids from that time. It was also my first time teaching languages in Europe. I learned to work with students from different cultural backgrounds than mine. I also learned to practice hospitality and respect in my classroom, which I feel was successful. I received a lot of love from my students. I love these kids!"Regarding his thesis, his research revolved around the role of information literacy in academic writing. "Modern writers rarely start from scratch and write from their prior knowledge; they integrate information from multiple sources," he says. This change has placed severe burdens on modern writers as they have to take on alternate roles as a reader and a writer at the same time. Moreover, online information is offered in great quantities and available on many platforms. University students are, however, not equipped with sufficient skills to deal with the overwhelming flow of information. Luan felt like he needed to do something about this and how he chose his thesis. In general, however, his research interests lie in the intersection between psychology and linguistics. He is intrigued by how language is processed and produced in the human brain. "My research topics include literacy development, reading and writing research, developmental deficits, and first and second language acquisition. I am also interested in educational psychology, such as research in critical thinking and teacher-student relationships."When it comes to his plans, the recent MA graduate says that he already is working on his PhD in Cognitive Linguistics in Belgium. "I love doing research and teaching, so I plan to become a professor soon. Through research, I’ve realized our capacities as humans to make the impossible become possible and make dreams become realities.” Luan loves science and he also wants to inspire younger generations to love it too. “Inspiring students is why being a professor is something that I aspire to every single day.”
