On Friday, 17th March, 2017, 1st and 3rd grade students of our school, along with their teachers of Civil Education and the English language, had the opportunity to meet with their peers from the United States at the American Corner library, and exchange curricular and extracurricular experiences. A group of students from New Hampshire, one of the original thirteen states of the Union , which is located on the very border with Canada, had come to Serbia to get to know our culture, history, language and education. Together with their teachers, the American students presented to us their school, their education system, their country and its magnificent nature, winter sports for which they have earned recognition far and wide, and even their families, pets, hobbies, and occasional jobs. On the other hand, our students presented Mathematical Grammar School, its tradition and its special place in the Serbian system of education. They spoke of their interests, competitive successes, and tastes in literature. The encounter went by with lots of conversation in a pleasant atmosphere, and with ease of communication in English, to our mutual satisfaction. We are thankful to the American Corner staff for extending their warm hospitality to us, and we look forward to the new events at such a great meeting venue.
