Monopoly @ American Teen Club

The session of the American Teen Club took place in Window on America Dnipropetrovsk (Ukraine).
The Head of WOA Svitlana Usenko  prepared several educational activities for the group. The group watched videos, learned Christmas vocabulary and Christmas song. The original subtitles helped the group a lot and introduced many new words and expressions.
Second part of meeting was dedicated to the Monopoly (board game).
Monopoly is a board game that originated in the United States in 1903 as a way to demonstrate the evils of land ownership. The current version was published by Parker Brothers in 1935. Subtitled "The Fast-Dealing Property Trading Game", the game is named after the economic concept of monopoly – the domination of a market by a single entity. It is now produced by the United States game and toy company Hasbro. Players move around the gameboard buying or trading properties, developing their properties with houses and hotels, and collecting rent from their opponents, with the goal being to drive them all into bankruptcy leaving one monopolist in control of the entire economy.
WOA’s young patrons enjoyed the game.
Number of participants – 5 persons.
