Select one of the following questions and post a one- to two-minute video with your response: 

  1. What do you think of the claim that  “America is a region, not a country”? Why do you think this way?
  2. Why or why shouldn’t we call people from the US “United Statesians?”
  3. Do you think US tourists expect everyone to speak English? Why might this be perceived as rude?
