Watching and discussing the movie "Thelma and Louise"

January 23, 2011 and January 30, 2011 at 2 p.m. we had English Speaking Club “Dialogue” with Edward Novick and Jun Blore, Peace Corps volunteers. These Sundays we were watching the movie “Thelma and Louise”. On the 23rd of January there were 16 people among them students, schoolchildren and teachers. On the 30th of January there were 14 people among them students and teachers. After watching the film we had a discussion devoted to the theme of the movie, but the greatest point of the discussion was analyzing the language in the film. It is not pure American English but rather American with accent. In “Thelma and Louise” we have heard strong Southern accent. Edward told more about the accent and other ones in different parts of America, so participants got a lot of information about how to speak in different states of the USA. Jun Blore told about different significant places in southern states, especially about the Grand Canyon. The visitors got a lot of information about this significant place and told what they knew about it. The most important thing of these events is that attendants got more information about America, its language, features and culture of different states. The quotation of the session was “as many the significant places, as many possibilities to find a lot of new things. ”
