With exchange participants from Tunisia, Egypt, Hong Kong and Pakistan sharing about their beloved country and its culture, the children got insights on culture, food and people of different countries. Some of which were not familiar to them at all. Through observation, the children took an interest in the more interactive sessions like the Bhangra dancing and the Q&A sessions, which some of them won themselves foreign currency by answering the questions correctly.
Overall, the kids were very excited and surprisingly participative as well. During our planning stage, we were well aware that they spoke and understood a little amount of English. So we tried our very best to translate everything to Bahasa Malaysia on the spot to ease their learning process. Although our translations did not come out as fluent as we wished it would be, that didn't stop them from participating in conversations and Q&A sessions, which made us very comfortable and happy.
