    Literature, History and Culture in Central Europe

    "My class could have the opportunity to made the private discussion with the authors after the end of the session. That was really help me so much to understand about the Author’s point of view and also to really know about the reason behind of the Author’s writing. In the private discussion, we usually discussed about the background of the writer’s story and the author’s real experience as a writer."
