Visit to the John F. Kennedy Institute

This past week was marked by another event highlight: a visit to the John F. Kennedy Insitute for North American Studies of the Freie Universität Berlin.

Englisch2Go did a complete tour of the area and buildings of the institute, including the great library with a wonderful collection of books, magazines and newspapers for everyone to read.

Afterwards, we sat in and listened to a lecture by one of the professors of the JFKI. She held a talk on the topic: „Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas: Entertainment Architecture and the Promise of Immersion„.

 

 

The students were able to practice understanding a different kind of English and get interesting information on the history of Las Vegas architecture and the change from neon-bright signs to a skyline of atmospheric wonder and fictional reality.
