Today’s session of the English Speaking Club at Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk was planned as a free-topic session.
At the beginning we continued to study the phenomenon of Cowboy Culture in the USA. We read an article that defined the terms used to describe the major elements of this phenomenon:
· - the types of cowboy work
· - the elements of Western wear or Cowboy attire
· - the tools used by cowboys.
The highlight of the second part of the session was the arrival of our longtime American friend Mr. Joseph BATTILEGA who returned from his trip to the US. The new club members introduced themselves to Mr. Joseph. In return he briefed us on the recent events of his family life and shared his ideas about the Cowboy Culture.
The Club members used the opportunity to ask a lot of questions to the native-speaker. The questions ranged from the traditions of educating children in the USA to the Ukrainian traditions which are hard to understand for the foreigners.
The charismatic Mr. Joseph has won the friendship of the newcomers instantly. All the participants had a great time communicating with him and enjoyed the session immensely.
The number of participants – 21 persons.
