English speaking club

The topic is  1 April – Fool’s Day. The topic of discussion was humor in everyday life. The club-members had an opportunity to see American humour by watching videos.
A slide show with humoristic pictures upped the mood.

Svitlana Kolesnikova:
The meeting was really very funny – hehe.  American humour is quite specific, but I liked the videos very much , we laughed a lot and couldn’t help laughing. I think that  this holiday has the right to exist. It’s good to have one day in a year to play a practical joke on somebody.
