Students of the Institute of Economics and Law learned firsthand about the traditions of the holiday and why it is important to say “thank you” from the Teacher Assistant from the USA.
A series of lectures and classes on the culture of studied language (the USA) is held for students of the Institute of Economics and Law under the guidance of the Associate Professor of the Department of Foreign Languages for Humanities Tatiana Tatarina and the assistant Daniel Szetela.
On November 28 America celebrates the most popular national holiday –Thanksgiving Day. On the eve of the event Daniel Szetela explained to the students why this the most popular family holiday in American culture. First of all the holiday unites relatives: the wonderful tradition to get together at family dinner with traditional food. Secondly, people get an opportunity to say “thank you” to their near and dear, appreciate all the good they have. The upside of the holiday is the feast: traditional roast turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and many other dishes.
Unfortunately, those present could not try these amazing dishes, yet students still got a positive energy boost and imagined themselves in the family circle and talked about what they are grateful for.
In their turn, the students told Daniel what holidays are popular in Russia and what dishes have become traditional for holiday feasts.
