Campus Talks Provide Information on Cultures of Other Countries
UKZN students from Russia, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo each gave presentations on their countries during International Culture Community (ICC) talks on the Westville campus.
International Culture Community talks and conversations are semester gatherings during which intercultural discussions take place based on select cultural topics, using guided conversational questions.
ICC Secretary General, Mr Joël Yondo, said this was a unique opportunity for local and international students to hear about other cultures and other countries. He said the ICC organisation aimed to promote international student culture at the University.
‘These cultural talks are a great opportunity for international students to share information on their home country’s culture and for the campus community to learn about different countries and cuisines of the world.’
Each of the three presenters spoke about their culture, official languages, tourist attractions, and education facilities.
Yondo spoke about the current political situation in the DRC, urging students to pray for his country.
Presentations were opened with each country’s national anthem.
