Dear Directors and Friends of the American Cultural Centers,

Greetings from the Bald Eagle and Panda American Headquarters at Iowa State University!
We are proud to provide Volume 1, Issue 5 of the Bald Eagle and Panda newsletters.  We hope that these newsletters are useful for students at the various American Cultural Centers. We ask that you print copies for display or distribution in your American Cultural Center. They are designed to be used to stimulate conversation in English Corners or in English language classrooms.  These may be resources for students interested in American culture. 

With each edition we try to include news from the U.S. as well as culture info.  For example, this issue includes basic information on Christmas, winter break in the U.S., and voices about Chinese two-child policy.

We would love to hear if you find these newsletters useful, or hear how we could redesign them to be more useful.  We also invite students from other American Cultural Centers to submit articles for inclusion in the newsletter.  Please reply with suggestions or content to
