Christmas is coming…

Welcome to English - Speaking Club. Last month we had a variety of topics discussed:

7.12 Playing the Game “Mafia”

14.12 Christmas Carol ( party and movie)

Christmas is coming… It is the time for the whole family to get together at Christmas dinner. Christmas is one of the most popular and important holidays in the USA. And today we had a chance to learn more about Christmas traditions of the American people. We watched the film “Christmas Carol”. And it was a pleasant surprise for us that our volunteer Arden arranged a small stand-up party. So we enjoyed the national American drink and food.

Thanksgiving Day.

Welcome to English - Speaking Club. Last month we had a variety of topics discussed:

2.11 Communication

9.11 Playing the game "Let's get Acquainted"

16.11 Thanksgiving Day

23.11 Thanksgiving Party. Thanksgiving is a holiday in November and it is a time for people to think about the things they are thankful for. Families and friends come together to celebrate Thanksgiving. They gather around a large table to give thanks for all blessings they have received during the year.
On Tuesday our volunteer Arden decided to make a Thanksgiving party and everyone was welcome to enjoy the warm atmosphere of the holiday. Every guest tried to bring something to eat: fruit, sweets, chocolates, cookies, juice, rolls, and buns. Some people made their best to cook something themselves so they brought home-made food. Before sitting down to dinner, all the participants paused to give their thanks in turns. Then they learnt about Thanksgiving in the USA, discussed interesting issues, took part in playing activities and just communicated with each other. The party was of great success.
