Hello students! I am going to Tajikistan to teach English at a university. I will leave Minnesota in August. I will go to Washington D.C. for 3 days for meetings. Washington D.C. is the capital of the United States. On August 26th, I will arrive in Tajikistan. I will live in the capital city. The city's name is Dushanbe. "Dushanbe" means "Monday" in the Tajiki language. People in Tajikistan speak Tajiki, Russian and other languages.
Tajikistan has about 7 million people. Minnesota has about 6 million people. Tajikistan is about the same size as Wisconsin. There are many mountains and rivers in Tajikistan. People eat rice, meat, apples, grapes, melons, and other foods. People wear many different colors of clothing.
