ASEAN HALL [COMPLETE] 2021.09.08
On 8 September, 138 students from Sungbo Middle School participated in the Centre’s online School Tour Program. The program opened with greetings from Lee Kyeong-a, Director of ASEAN Hall, who gave the welcoming remarks and lecture on ASEAN and international organizations. Afterwards, the students applied their new knowledge of ASEAN through the Golden Bell Quiz and had a highly interactive Q&A discussion session with the ASEAN officials from Malaysia and Laos. The officials introduced their respective countries to the students and shared intriguing discussions on their choice of career paths, cultural shock experiences in Korea, and representative cultural symbols of each country. To wrap up the program, the students completed their ASEAN Map puzzles.
The following is a testimonial from a student:
“I enjoyed listening to the ASEAN officials’ lectures on their own countries and having discussion time with them.”
