Today we went to school and arrived at 9. We divided into 3 groups and began diffrent works with our own buddies. In my group, we started sharing our cultures from each country, an activity we called “Intercambio.”
We formed groups with people from the same countries, then we discussed what to share for a moment and went to the classroom. It was not easy to come out with an interesting, fun thing which represents typical Korean culture. We also wanted them to remember what we were trying to show them and to understand us.
They looked pretty young, so when their teacher talked to them they paid attention really well and seemed to have interest in us. Isoo and I went first to introduce about Korean bowing and basic greetings. We explained why we bow and to who, with different hand shapes. Girls put their right hands on top and boys put their left hands on top, and set up the scene. Hence, we pretended that she is older than me and we are in a formal situation.
Fortunately, they gave us enough energy to us to respond and follow us, we could finish culture exchanging successfully and fun. Due to the rain, we finished up our schedule earlier than the other days. So we just brainstormed the idea for posters related to the environment.
