MiR 011 Mark in Russia Presents – Memorial Day

June 11, 2011

Teaching American culture through videos. Although Memorial Day is one of the “Big Four” of American holidays, most non-Americans know little about this holiday. I hope to teach something about the culture and traditions in addition to introducing new vocabulary.

Ask any American about Memorial Day and you’ll be stirring up feelings of pride and gratitude in addition to great memories surrounding this holiday. The Holiday is marked by parades and famous car races, but it also serves as the entry holiday into the summer season. Barbecues and days at the beach also form part of our collective memories of Memorial Day.

Well, watch and listen to the podcast and if you are not American, you will certainly learn a lot about this big American holiday.
