American discovers Dnipro city

“The American told schoolchildren of the outskirts of Dnipro about America in English”.
The week of English Language in Ukraine still continues. The New Year holidays are approaching! So let’s create festive mood to everyone who studies English festively!
The American volunteer and English teacher of Mr. Jason Rush and the Head of the information and resource Window on America center Msr. Svitlana Usenko made a friendly visit to secondary school No 39 being invited by school teacher Victoria Platonova. It was a welcome surprise for 5th graders. Mr. Jason became inspirator of oral skills of the schoolchildren and checked their knowledge of English by asking questions and answering the counter-questions of the braves. The conversation was focused on Washington D.C., where our guest came from, about his sphere of activity in Ukraine, hobbies, sports, cars, plant and animal kingdom and much more on which children’s imagination is capable of.
The schoolchildren prepared several festive activities like declaiming a poem and dancing with a song.  The performing artists received commemorative photos with the guest on them.

The weather was pretty cold (-8 C), but it did not intervene our planned picturesque outskirts excursion in the Pivnichnyi district, which took place in the end. The group of activists made a start to feed birds and squirrels in the forest to help them to survive in these frosty days. The American guest liked the New Year garland on the front doors which looked like it was in American style, and he was interested in buildings of the Soviet architecture and enchanting Orthodox Church.
The English teachers of the school also joined the activity. So we shall wait for the new invitations and prepare new activities for the schoolchildren of the secondary school No 39.
Number of participants – 50 persons.
