Teachers:

Lisa tells us that she and her friend Andrea actually wanted to go to Paris (not London) on their vacation, but their friends in New York told them that the French don't like Americans. This is why we titled this lesson 16b because it follows lesson 16 concerning the French.
Our filming team during this trip to the UK included a French woman, so the interviewer gets a direct French opinion on the matter, with Lisa, in the video.

This is Lisa's first trip outside of the USA. She's from Staten Island, one of the 5 boroughs of New York City, and has a typical New York City accent.

As you will, see she's really funny.

What does Lisa do back home in New York? She works in Andrea's nail shop.
