Great Performances 1st night, International Student Programs
Check the full schedule, including the Tue 15 Nov 2016 programs starting at 11amCT at LWC International Week Schedule
By Sabine Eastham
The International Student Programs at LWC opened their first night of the International Education Week (IEW) with spectacular performances by more than 20 students from Korea and Japan.
This event was established by the US Department of the State, and is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.
The Lindsey Wilson College currently serves 109 international students from 39 different countries. For many weeks, students worked diligently on being able to present a part of their culture and traditions. The love and pride for their countries and universities was clearly evident!
We were treated to authentic Korean (Bulgogi (Korean barbeque), rice, tteok kkochi (rice cake skewer), and Korean traditional rice snack) and Japanese food (Mitarashi Dango- small round Mochi balls are skewered on bamboo sticks and covered with a gooey sweet and salty brown sauce.. as we listened to stories about the Korean War, the Afterlife and much more.
The dance moves depict ocean waves, fishermen dragging nets, pulling ropes and lifting luggage over their shoulders. We also learned that in Korea, you are already one year old the day you are born.
BR> We learned that the basic difference between Yukata and Kimonos is in their fabric. Yukata comes in cotton fabric. On the contrary, a kimono dress comes in silk fabric.
Another difference that can be seen is that Yukata is worn during the summer season.
