American Short Stories *NEW*

Who are Americans? Americans have many origins: from Native Americans displaced by Europeans, to old Yankees and early colonists, to pioneer families moving West, to immigrants from many countries in successive waves, to African Americans transported into slavery, and refugees from wars. In this course for high intermediate and advanced students we will become more familiar with American authors of many backgrounds, allowing us to practice American idioms and dialogue, and improve our speaking, listening and pronunciation skills. While reading short stories, we will discuss how an American culture was created. Instructor: Joanne Nicklas
