Learn American English:
November 2014 Newsletter

Welcome! Let's learn American English this month!

Learn American English in this short explanation of the very first "Thanksgiving" in the United States. In school, many American children learn that the first Thanksgiving was a grand banquet with the Pilgrims and native American Indians. A story where the Pilgrims generously invited the Indians over for dinner.... The problem is that history didn't really happen that way.

You can also get the vocabulary definitions in the PDF and you'll probably learn some new vocabulary words in the article too.

Audio Recording

I've finally recorded the audio (a few days late because I've had a bad cold and was coughing every time I tried to speak... I'm a bit better but my voice still sounds hoarse. Sorry!)

Note: I'm having some problems with the player for the audio on this page so if you don't see the player, you can listen to the recording at this link.

Time to Practice!
