OSCAR Awards 2016

Today’s session of the Gabfest Club (Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine) focused on the topic “OSCAR Awards 2016”.
To break the ice we started to enumerate the basic words that are associated with watching the movies: film reel, movie theater, pop-corn bag and others. The group was familiarized with the DOUNB Library books that provide information about American actors and movie industry. But the most valuable resource was the WOA’s book “The Art of Watching Movies” that introduced the numerous aspects and terms used for a film analysis.

In the second part of the session the club members were offered the materials from the official Oscar Ceremony site. We learned the names of the nominations and the winners in each nomination. The videos that illustrated the topic provided the insight into what were the best and the worst moments in the Oscar show 2016.
In the final part of the session the club members explained to our American volunteer Mr. Jason why they are so fond of American movies.
The session was a” full house” and explained several cross-cultural issues to the participants.
Number of participants – 38 persons.
