Our Grade X students had a wonderful interaction with Vietnamese students from Pathway School. Students participated in a ‘Mystery Skype’ session first where they guessed each other’s countries, exchanged information about each other’s countries – from popular dishes to famous tourist attractions. A fun part of the session was learning how to speak the same phrase in Hindi and Vietnamese and working to get the pronunciation just right!
Cultural exchanges like these promote a healthy appreciation for cultures and people from around the world. It helps develop students’ confidence, expand their horizons and gives them a first hand experience of different cultures.
