US Presidential inauguration 2017

This Saturday the Gabfest Club members (Window on America center in Dnipro, Ukraine) had a big group of foreign guests – a guest from the UK Mr. Armando and our loyal volunteers Mr. Jason and Mr. Stephen.
The guest from the UK told the group about his home region in Northern England and shared his methods of studying English. Mr. Armando is an Italian national, but he has a permanent residency in the UK. His tips for self-tuition – listening to English-speaking radio and investing in a good dictionary – were appreciated by the club members.
To warm up the group we decided to tell about the winter holiday season in Ukraine. The club members had to explain the traditional celebration of Theophany in Ukrainian Orthodox church. The faithful club members shared their experience of submersion into ice-cold water.

The official topic of the session was “US presidential inauguration 2017”. The group was offered the images and videos of the President D.Trump and his inauguration ceremony. The group and the volunteers discussed the slogan of Donald Trump’s election campaign and his attitude towards the “Swiss cheese” border.
To wrap up the session the new – comers had a short Q&A activity with the foreign guests.
