The American Experience

International students in America have a lot to learn and get used to–a new language, academic setting, and community. While they’re getting used to the present America, what international students sometimes don’t consider is history and the significant events that have shaped America. Understanding history better will give you a deeper insight into how American culture and values have been shaped. Hopefully it will clear some of the confusion on why America is the way it is now. Watch the TV series The American Experience at PBS and delve into history! Recommended for intermediate to advanced learners (Levels 400+).
