DATE
THEME
March 16 & March 23 Literature: (Two sessions) Before the advent of modern travel technology, literature has given people the opportunity to see and experience every part of the world. English has been the prefered language of communication for numerous nobel laureates and best selling authors to describe these adventures. In this session we will discuss some of the best books of each genre of literature. We will talk about important themes in writing and storytelling and draw comparisons between different books we have read. We will learn about book culture in the U.S. and learn some means.
April 3 & 5 Cuisine: U.S. cuisine is often characterized by big portions, and hamburgers, but it is indeed much more complex. In this workshop, we will explore cultural aspects of U.S. cuisine including regional differences, fast food, international influences, and diner culture. We will also discuss some strange foods, and students will be able to make and taste a U.S. favorite, Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches.
April 10 & 12 Movies: The US has one of the largest film industries in the world. Hollywood and its movies have spoken to audiences across the world since the early twentieth century. These movies are a connection to American culture. They represent with vivid imagination our dreams, nightmares, fantasies, hopes and wishes. In this workshop we will discuss some of the U.S. most popular films, watch clips, and rate and review movies we have seen. It will be an excellent opportunities to learn how to better reflect on the movies we watch and see how best to take advantage of cinema to improve our English.
April 17 & 19 Religion: The first European groups who settled in what is now the United States were fleeing religious persecution and proclaimed it a place of religious freedom. In contrast to other developed nations, the majority of people in the U.S. report that religion plays an important role in their lives, which contributes to the continued presence of religious diversity in the U.S. In this workshop, we will review the basic principles of some of the most popular religions in the U.S., discuss the influence of religious values on culture and politics, and explore historical events related to religious persecution and conflict.
April 24 & 26 Jazz, blues, country, rock, rhythm and blues, soul, and hip hop all have their origins in the United States. Much like Colombia’s departments, music in the United States is very regional. Join us for a tour of the best music scenes in the US. We will learn many of the origin stories of the world’s most listened to genres and maybe you’ll discover some new songs to add to your spotify playlist.
May 1 & 3 Humor: Comprehension and use of humor is a great measure of literacy in a foreign language. If you can make and understand jokes in English it will help you make friends and it will help you in the business world. In this session we will look into different types of comedy seen in American media like slapstick, cartoon, satire in literature, stand up, memes and sarcasm. We will share jokes and then analyze and explain them because explaining jokes never ruins them :D.
