Thanksgiving Briefing at Eugenio dos Santos School

Briefing on Thanksgiving. (Photo: US Embassy)U.S. Embassy made two presentations about Thanksgiving at Eugenio dos Santos school, in Lisbon. The topic was the history of the holiday and its importance to American culture. The first briefing had the added plus of being the first time the students in that session had heard a native American English speaker in person.

The second presentation was done all in English and was very important to this group of students because they have a special commitment with the English language since they are all studying English and this visit gave them a chance to communicate in the language and learn more about American traditions.
