You will read, listen and watch (on video) short stories about the personal challenges of people from around the world in this class. Then we will have lively class discussions about the short stories.

These stories were recorded on the Moth Radio Hour, so we will be able to both read and view them. Spanning the world from Africa to Asia and from Europe to the Americas, these personal stories center around the theme of overcoming the challenges that come with sudden changes in life.

This class will focus on speaking, reading/vocabulary and writing skills through viewing, reading, and discussing these Moth Radio Hour stories.
