Talking about Autumn


Are you a Fall person? Does your mood depend on the weather? Yesterday these and other questions were discussed during the meeting of the Kherson English Speaking Club. More than 15 adults came to  Window on America for Future Leaders Kherson to improve their english with PC volunteers, Nina Jackson and Whitney Cravens. 





We started with congratulation Nina with her Birthday and sang a song. Nina and Whitney did a great presentation about "Autumn", we watched funny videos, discussed lots of questions (in groups) and even learnt some autumn #tounge_twisters. So it's a great way to learn English.

What is the difference between an American school and a Ukrainian one?

Yesterday Window on America for Future Leaders Kherson had a meeting of #coolspeaking club where we talked about School. We started with an Ice-breaker "Associations" and discussed which is better to study at school or at home (there was one girl among the visitors who studies at home).




 American volunteers, Troy Burton and Ethan Robison helped us with these activities a lot. And then we compared american🇺🇸 and ukrainian 🇺 schools, subjects and education in general. Students found out lots of informationand asked our guests many questions.
