Learning about traditional culture

“Third culture” might be an issue when we talk with people from the “origin” country. Although it’s a bit narrow-minded to look at people only from their “nationalities”, such expectations are often seen and probably we will also see from now on.

Hina doesn’t mind speaking her native language with an English accent because English is her first language. But it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t value culture of her origin. She is quite interested in learning a history and culture.

She got a traditional dress as a gift from our guest.

She tried dancing with it. She kept asking me to teach how to dance the traditional dance properly. Since I don’t know it and there is a certain way of dancing the traditional dance, I asked a professional to come over to teach her the introduction.

I hope she would enjoy the class and absorb a culture from it.
