本次讲座中，上海美国中心请到美国英语教师John Maruschak 和 Stephen Perrot 来为大家介绍美国的冬季节日传统。作为一个开放、多元文化、多民族的国家，美国各地会庆祝很多不同的节庆日。不过，尽管这些节日的起源和习俗不同，它们都是美国人和家人朋友团聚的日子，不论节日的起源是宗教性的还是具有文化历史意义，人们都会在美食和音乐的伴随下，和自己爱的人一起度过。John Maruschak 和 Stephen Perrot 是经验丰富的美国英语教师，目前正通过美国国务院英语语言学者项目在多个中国大学巡回授课。
On November 21, 2018, the Shanghai American Center invites you to a talk presented by English Language Fellows John Maruschak and Stephen Perrot on holiday traditions celebrated in the United States during the wintertime. America is an open, multicultural, and multiethnic society. Consequently, across the country and throughout the year, many different holiday traditions are observed and celebrated. However, despite any differences in origins and customs of the many different holidays, the ways in which Americans gather together with friends and family on these special days share a great number of similarities. Whether time-honored religious traditions or days of cultural and historic significance, we come together with loved ones to celebrate, sometimes with food, drink, and music. During this academic year, Mr. Maruschak and Mr. Perrot, both of whom are highly-qualified and experienced U.S. educators in the field of teaching English, are hosted at Chinese universities through the Department of State’s English Language Fellows program.
