Skype session.American slang&idioms


February 5, at 2 p.m.  we had English Speaking Club with two Peace Corps Volunteers Jun Blore and Andrew Brož . This time we had Skype session with another Peace Corps Volunteer Charlie from Doneck and Kimberley from the USA. It was devoted to American slang and idioms. There were 22 people, among them students, pupils and teachers.
We had an interesting talk with native speakers who gave us information concerning common slang words and expressions from different topics and spheres of life so that the visitors got the idea of the language American youth speaks. Firstly a word or expression was given to the audience and everyone had to guess what that meant. Then we were given the right answer and after discussed it relating to Ukrainian. The club members knew many interesting and useful expressions and improved their knowledge in such way. It was also very useful to communicate with native Americans and to get acquainted with their everyday communication.

 I must say this session had a very big success.
