Frequency of the misuse of prepositions by Albanian students: A case study with first year students studying Greek, Italian and German at the Faculty of Foreign Languages (Published)

This study looks at English prepositions and the challenges that students learning English as a Foreign Language (EFL) encounter in mastering them. The purpose of this study is to describe the problems Albanian students studying English have in discovering out how to use prepositions correctly. Examples of preposition misuse are taken from the descriptive essays submitted by Albanian students at the University of Tirana, Faculty of Foreign Languages. We acknowledge that inappropriate use of prepositions was one of the ten most common errors observed in the collected corpus of essays based on the findings of the study conducted with students of the Faculty of Foreign Languages. The findings suggest that Albanian students studying English as a foreign language have difficulty using prepositions correctly. Prepositions are the most frequently misused part of speech. By, at, in, on, to, of, and for were the most often misused prepositions.

German Occupation of Soviet Union during World War I1: The Significance of the Liberation of Leningrad (Published)

This paper examines the fate of prisoners of war and displaced persons during the 900- day German siege on Leningrad vis-à-vis the significance of the Soviet liberation of the town in terms of the effect on Leningrad people’s social condition, as well as the impact of the liberation on Soviet Union’s military campaign to expel German forces completely from Soviet territory. The paper argues that the liberation of Leningrad was significant in that it halted the annihilating death toll of over 600,000 Russians in the town alone together with the vastly deteriorating humanitarian conditions, and also marked the successive collapse of Nazi occupation in other Soviet towns and entire Eastern front. The study adopts the historical method.
