    Hi Jane,

    Thanks for your message. We have subscribers from all over the world and we try to provide materials that would be of interest to learners from many different countries. Our Remembrance Day lesson mentions that this holiday is called different things in different countries. Even though we are based in Canada, we do not focus on Canadian events and issues.

    Have you seen our American Presidents section? Also, our Mini-Debates section discusses some American issues. We also cover many Americans in our Famous People section. If you have a specific request for a lesson based on an American holiday, custom, or figure, please let us know. We love requests.

    I would like to have lessons that are geared towards people living in the US rather than Canada. For example your Remembrance Day is Veterans Day in the US. Your lessons also use Canadian cities. I would prefer US cities. Do you have anything like this available? Thanks.
