Discoiver USA. Washington D.C.

The WOA Center Dnipropetrovsk was visited by the 8th grade students from the local high school number 23. The school is a longtime partner of the WOA Center and the DOUNB library.
The Center’s free resources for learning English were presented to the group. They have inspected the book and image display "American music and musicians" and a paper display «Music Scene and Heard». The highlight of the book display is an exposition of the new arrivals that were acquired within the framework of the project “U.S. ART Residence in Dnipropetrovsk”.
Within the framework of the “Discover USA” project the group listened to the English language presentation and learned a lot of interesting facts about the capital of the USA – the city of Washington named after first US President George Washington.

WOA’s staff member Tamara Gavryliuk commented slide-show, drew the students’ attention to the new vocabulary used in the presentation. Students read and translated the text on the slides. The presentation covered numerous aspects - the history of the capital, the geography of the area, the beautiful architecture of the city, the capital’s heart - National Mall, wonderful memorials in honor of the US presidents, Library of Congress’s and the White House’s interiors. At the end of the meeting, the students watched a funny video about the Easter celebration on the lawn near the White House, learned about the popular Easter games "Egg Hunt" and "Egg Roll". The children were attentive and actively answered questions on the content of the presentation, showed a high level of proficiency in English.
