Рубрика: Новости
22 июня уже стартует второй курс Chat Tour. Наш учитель Энни рассказала о своей теме "Cultural Norms in the US". 

- Почему ты выбрала именно эту тему?

I really like culture in general, and I think there are a lot of small nuances that I tell my friends about all the time - so I'm sure it would be useful for those planning to go to the US or have questions about our customs!- По каким американским традициям ты скучаешь, находясь в России? Что из этого обязательно бы понравилось жителю России, по-твоему?

A few things: I desperately miss diners - I'll explain what those are in the lesson, for those unaware! I also do enjoy the smiles and "small-talk" (relating to your fellow man) prevalent in the US, and in general - CONVENIENCE!

- Разговорный клуб в формате онлайн - это хорошо?

And of course, in this period where it's difficult to meet in person, and moreso unsafe, online is our best option! If we can bank online, why can't we speak online?
