Language class

In class, a few days ago, I (Jonny) explained why Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. I thought that it was a little odd that I ended up talking about this - but I think I bettered it today.

Today I gave a pretty detailed description about the origins of the 'v' sign. This included a pretty detailed overview of the Battle of Agincourt. I'm sure there aren't many other Khmer language students who talk about topics as diverse as this during their conversation practice! Or indeed if there are many others, like me, who are willing to talk at length about topics they have very little actual knowledge about!

I wonder what I'll talk about tomorrow...
