Yuri’s Night at WOA Dnipro

This afternoon the Gabfest Club session (Window on America center, Dnipro, Ukraine) started with the introduction of the new-comers. The regular club members as always asked them tricky questions about the role of English in their lives.
The official topic of the session was “The First Manned Spaceflight Anniversary”. The group was introduced to such US phenomenon as “Yuri’s Night”. Yuri's Night events "combine space-themed partying with education and outreach". Parties and events are held at NASA centers, museums, schools, bars, houses, and other locations.

The goal of Yuri's Night is to increase public interest in space exploration and to inspire a new generation of explorers. Driven by space-inspired artistic expression and culminating in a worldwide network of annual celebrations and educational events, Yuri's Night creates a global community of young people committed to shaping the future of space exploration while developing responsible leaders and innovators with a global perspective. These global events are a showcase for elements of culture that embrace space including music, dance, fashion, and art.
We have watched several illustrative videos about Yuri’s parties in different US cities and discussed them.
The space topic was welcomed by all participants as they live in the space capital of Ukraine and are proud of that.
Participants number – 30 persons.

Ukraine’s Tourist Attractions - 2

The young visitors once again excited the DOUNB library's silence. A regular training session for younger schoolchildren took place at “Window on America” Center. The “Grass-Hoppers” Club penetrated deeper into the topic "Ukraine’s Tourist Attractions" with WOA’s volunteer Anna Motorina.
We enlarged our stories with adjectives. Anna supported us with her ideas how to write the advertisement brochure. We believe that the parents of our club members will also contribute to this activity at home.
She told the club members in English about the capital of Ukraine - Kyiv, Cossacks’ Khortytsya, Kamyanets-Podilskyi castle, musical fountains of Vinnitsa, the landscape park "Sofiyivka".
The best responses were graded in American style – with A, B, C.
