Video Prompt

Show us what you’ve learned about the culture you’re studying. This could be through a newscast about a current event in that country, an advertisement for travel there, or even a song about what you love about that culture. Be as creative as you’d like. Make sure to show us what you’ve learned about the culture in question. Most importantly, have fun!
