Several weeks ago, we been helping some Korean Students who will go to do there volunteer work in Cambodia. They are very curious about Cambodia and are eagerly to see and spending some fun time with Cambodian kids. Many enjoying program are being prepared now. ^^ Oh.. and here is the story.
My Korean brother has volunteered in Cambodia for around 1 year, therefore he still knows some basic communication. Since there is the new group of students who will go to volunteer more, the organizer opened a session regarding Cambodia and have each students presenting separately about Cambodia. So my brother will helping them to learn how to speak Khmer and it will be even more effective if there are native Cambodian help the event. So me and my friends offered a help by joining this session and teach them some basic. It was a very interesting experience. ^^
At first we were so panic once seeing they are older than us, but most of them are really friendly that we no longer feel afraid. After the presentation we together went to enjoy dinner and back to class to have a final discussion and photo shooting. The final discussion is the most interest part of all because I and my friends really really want to interact closer to those beautiful and handsome Korean students, hehehe.. .and then here we’ve got the chance. There are 3 Cambodian, so we divided into 3 group with 10 Korean students each. I’m really thankful to my little Korean language knowledge that I no longer need to use much English this time and enjoyed very well with them.
There are English teaching group and art group, they are gonna teach Cambodian kids to get more knowledge about this two theme via playing game. Therefore, before they play what kind of game with a kid they need to know if it suitable or not since its culture differences, some games might not be effective. and I was very happy that I can offer a great help. Ah.. and the most funny part is they asked us to give their new Cambodian name. To our surprised, these 3 Cambodian girls can’t find anything more better than their beautiful friends name and the most popular singers or people in Cambodia. Yeah.. they really enjoy it so much. But I’m so sorry as well for those who doesn’t like their name, but come on! We dont have much time to give a meaningful name to 10 people in just a second like this. Sorry!
The communication went very well and we became friends even after the session. This is how life carry us.
마음이 열다 보면 생활을 익숙할 거예요.^^
Please enjoy the slideshow of the event below.
Ah.. there also a memorable thing for me, it was when we all finished and saying good bye to each other, I walked to the door before my friend and unfortunately she stepped on my shoes, and it teared apart. Everyone so worried how I can go home with one part of shoes, but they helped me with a taped so I can use the broken shoes for a while. It’s such an embarrassing and funny moment that they can’t help it not to take picture of that. My dear shoes!! ㅠㅠ
