I loved the story, and I thought it was clever to use a graphic novel to surpass any language barriers between the two groups.What students sayAmerican students really haveexplicit freedom of speech!!!!!!!! Anddue to this course we had anopportunity to appreciate it andexpress our ideas and then discussedthem!!! Wonderful!!!!!!!! It seems that US media is a little more democratic than Belarusian.
