And now the task you like most of all. Make up dialogues.

The teacher asked you to prepare a presentation about Ossetian festivals. But you don't know much about it. You ask your classmate for help. Act out a dialogue.

In your dialogue don't forget to mention the next points:

  1. When is the festival celebrated?

  2. Who is invited to the festival?

  3. What dishes are usually cooked for the feast?

You know so much about American and British festivals. But we shouldn't forget our national customs and festivals too. We are considered a nation if we have our own language and traditions.
