Active entertainment. Fun vocabulary learning.

Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine was visited by a group of students from the local summer camp ”Friendly family”. The group was introduced to the following WOA’s resources:
* open access encyclopedia, dictionary, fiction and movies collections
* paper display about USA music and musicians
* book display about USA movie stars.

The group was offered a You Tube video with a funny “Shark Song” in English. This video from native speakers presented a language activity with singing, moving and introduction of new words.
Funny atmosphere is a good stimulus for young students – they learn new things more willingly.
The older students in the group were interested in paper-based library catalogues which become history and are replaced by electronic catalogues in many libraries.
WOA’s patrons improved their language skills and enjoyed the active games.
Number of participants – 40.
