    Here is a great opportunity for you (or your students) to practice your English and learn a little bit about the United States. On Tuesday, 13 April at 11:00 a.m. EDT (UTC-4) I will be in conversation with Sandra Story from the U.S. Department of State as part of a series called Faces and Places across the United States.  I'll be talking about my home state of Vermont and what life is like here. To be sure that the conversation is accessible to intermediate level students, we'll try to keep the language from getting too complicated.  The conversation will be held live on Facebook at this address:  https://www.facebook.com/AmericanEnglishatState   Here is a useful time zone converter to check the time where you live:  https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html  I hope you can join us! If you'd like to share this opportunity with friends, colleagues, and students, I've attached an image that you are welcome to share. In cast you aren't free at the time of the live conversation, a recording will be made available on YouTube afterwards.
