Представлять вам группу The Offspring я не стану - нет смысла. У меня даже мысли в голову не пробираются о том, что кто-то может не знать этих музыкантов и тем более их альбом Americana, вышедший в 1998 году.
Альбом буквально за считаные мгновения стал супер-успешным. Кстати, он немного отличался (да и отличается теперь) от их остальных альбомов. Здесь они стебали уже не только хэви-метал, но и все музыкальные стили, которые им только удалось воспроизвести. В текстах появился какой-то юмор, но в большинстве своём они оставались такими же серьёзными и трагичными. Offspring'и производили впечатление весьма наивных провинциальных музыкантов, которые даже не понимают, насколько смешно они звучат. За это их и полюбило новое поколение реальных провинциальных подростков, звучавших так же смешно и мысливших столь же серьёзно.

Как и всегда партии голоса и гитары + табы. ..

Let us compare our Year 12 statistics with those of a number of European countries. In Finland, the country that received the top rating in the first OECD PISA study (Programme for International Student Assessment) comparing the achievements of school students, all Year 12 students take Finnish, Swedish and English. 12 How can these countries cope with their ‘crowded curricula’ and still give such prominence to languages?

Towns and cities with a presence of the relevant language offer a fascination that may not be obvious to those for whom this presence is commonplace.

Family histories, photographs or diaries are a reminder of the early use of a community language such as German, Italian or Cantonese (or Gaelic or an Aboriginal language).
