Announcement for LasVegas

As I said before in the lecture, You are supposed to watch In time (2001) by Sunday Morning. We are going to discuss the movie in the lesson. 

I'd suggest you watch the film in the original language with English subtitle. So that it'd be much more easier for you to discuss in the class. I'm so sure you are capable of it.


365 Grateful

Dear LasVegas;

What are you grateful for?

Being grateful means feeling or showing thanks.You are going to watch a short film titled 365 grateful. Upon inspired by the film, I'd like you to express what you are grateful for.

From my point of view, I'm so grateful for being healthy.

I'm so willing to learn about your creative views.


Here is the video. Enjoy watching it!

Culture Shock

Dear NYC;

Here is the assignment. Culture shock is the personal disorientation a person may feel when experiencing an unfamiliar way of life due to immigration or a visit to a new country, a move between social environments, or simply travel to another type of life.The video is very interesting in showing how the same hand gestures can mean very different things in other cultures.As the video points out, some gestures can be very offensive in some cultures whereas it might be completely fine in yours. 

So If one of your foreign friends comes to your country, What would you suggest him? 

What should he avoid? 
Which behaviour is not appropriate in Turkey?
What do Turkish people regard as rude?

Please explain yourself briefly. I'd love to hear about your suggestions.

Have a nice week

Freedom

Dear LasVegas;

Here's the assignment I mentioned in the lesson. Hear what people in London say. 

One man feels free when he can make his own decisions, and have freedom of speech. One woman doesn't feel free when someone is nagging her. Another woman feels most free when she plays the piano because she isn't worrying about anything.

After watching the video below, Please explain yourself clearly in a small paragraph.
So Here's the question; 

when do you feel free
