New immigrant teacher leads students to experience multicultural customs
Kaohsiung City Fongshan New Immigrant Family Service Center and Tongling Community Development Association in Dashu district jointly hosted a multicultural summer camp for three days from July 19 to July 31 at Tongling Community Center.
To allow teenagers to experience different cultures and understand the importance of teamwork, the camp invited lecturers from Vietnam, Japan, and Cambodia to lead children to explore exotic cultures including food, costumes, rituals, and toys.
Xiao Yi (小珆), whose father is from Cambodia, planned to go back to Cambodia with her father. However, as the Covid-19 has impacted the world greatly, they had no choice but canceled their flight. After joining the camp, she got to know a lot about different cultures around the world. Another child named A You shared, "I like playing Vietnamese Bingo the most, which is really different from Taiwanese Bingo. The Vietnamese one has many numbers from 1 to 90. Every time I shouted out the last number and made them a line, I was so happy."
