Some weeks ago, our teacher Mr García asked us if we wanted to have a presentation and a class about life in the United States, and we accepted without doubting.
So finally, Elena Merino, the lady that was going to teach us something about the US lifestyle came and explained to us that she had lived there for approximately four years, from 2003 to 2006, and she had stayed in West Virginia, so she told us about the state, its nature, peoples, hobbies, food and many more things.
At the beginning, she asked if we could locate West Virginia in the US map, and we couldn’t… Then she showed us the flag of the state and the reasons for its symbols, so she talked about the symbols and the main economic activities of West Virginia. Later, she spoke about the different seasons and nature in the state, and the main sports they like to practice there (American football).
Finally, she showed us a great variety of typical foods they have, and we got surprised, because the people from West Virginia are the fattest in the United States.
In conclusion, I would say that it was a very interesting activity in which we could learn many things about different lifestyles and practice our English.
