AnotationThe project aims to support learning another foreign language, that is, a local language of the country the respondents currently stay at, through English language. The main objective of the research is to design and verify didactic recommendations towards learning the local language easily, which opens door to the school attendance and integration in the society. The respondents, pupils and students from the Ukraine, provide data through their "life story" - a semistructured written essay about the history of their learning English before the war and online distance learning during the war. The didactic recommendations will be verified by prospective teachers of English during their teaching practice and in discussions with Ukrainian learners. (The Russian invasion of Ukraine 24 Feb. 2022 = "the war")
