On July 10th, the Darmasiswa students from VEDC had their final presentation to mark the end of the program. Each student chose a theme related to the Indonesian culture to present in front of their teachers, the directors and their coordinator. With a lot of emotion they managed to present 10 minutes in Indonesian.
Waiting their turn to go to the front…
One last check of the power points…
HERE WE GO !
Nia from China chose to speak about the informal language that especially teenagers use when texting or on social media. It takes practice and patience to master this form of communication as well.
Harue from Japan spoke about the specific food from 33 regions of Indonesia. We all go a little bit hungry!
The girls did a great job!
