Greetings Everyone!

This blog is written to introduce you to the culture of the United States.

Because the American society is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural one,  I will focus on the common items that transcend the many cultures and the experiences that Americans encounter in daily life.  The society is very diverse, therefore, the blogs I write will not apply to every person, but in a general sense.  Hopefully enough information will be provided to help you imagine that "You Are There!"

My dear teacher.

Every time I visit your profile, I always find new and great things that can be used to improve my and others' knowledge and skills in English. Evidently, it is because of the way you blended the knowledge about the language itself and the culture of the United States, successfully made your lessons more intersting and effective to sudy. In other words you have provide us with materials having relationship with real life in USA. For example, the description of 2014 Price/Wage Statistics in the US. It is truly insightful!

Marice, you are a very thoughtful person, Thank you for your kind words!

I want to explain what Easter is for those who may not know.

Easter is a celebration of the fact that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose from the dead on the 3rd day. Jesus died to pay the sin debt of humanity. For those who believe this, accompanied by the repentance of sins, will have everlasting life according to the Bible.
