Lessons in culture

Ana Madigibuli
Tuesday, April 29, 2014

A NEW Korean Culture and Language program being offered to Fijian students will allow them to appreciate Korean culture and provide them with an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of our diverse universe.

This was highlighted by Minister for Youth and Sports Commander Viliame Naupoto during the opening of the three-day Korean language and culture program at the Fiji Museum yesterday.

"The program will greatly assist participating students to develop positive relationships with other races and cultures, understand a broader range of perspectives and develop the knowledge, skills and tolerance needed for participation in our multicultural society," Cdr Naupoto said.

"I hope that the targeted number of 150 students will be present to learn and enjoy the sessions.

"The reality in Fiji is that majority of Fijians know little or nothing at all about Korea, let alone the Korean language and culture. This short program will indeed help these students appreciate the Korean culture and broaden their knowledge of the country."
