Conversational Tour through American History. This class will have conversations around the theme of American History. Events such as the American Revolution, the Civil War, War of 1812, World War 2 and more modern events such as Watergate, Vietnam War, and 9/11 will also be covered. Biographies of famous people during these events will also be discussed. Historical debate is welcome.

This group will focus on conversation, with plenty of opportunities for participants to talk about topics of interest, and may include playing American games that incorporate the use of English.
