Visit of International Students from Li Po Chun United World College ‹ BACK
From time to time, Methodist College urges students to explore the world and learn about different cultures.

That’s why our school invited students from Li Po Chun United World College (LPC) to engage in a cultural exchange activity with the students of 3R. The LPC students come from places around the world, including the Middle East, Africa, Oceania and Europe, as well as other parts of Asia. It was an honor and a pleasure to have them with us.

In a 90-minute English lesson, the LPC students gave us a brief introduction about where they come from, their school and campus life. We interacted together, by playing traditional Hong Kong games with them, such as May Peace Prevail on Earth (天下太平), Law of the Jungle (鬥獸棋), and Chinese checkers (波子棋). We also taught them the art of Chinese calligraphy. Afterwards, the LPC students taught us their native languages, such as Hindi, Arabian, Malagasy and a lot more. We also learnt about their traditional songs and dances, as music is sometimes better than words.

That English lesson was an eye-opener for us. We spent those 90 minutes with them like we had known them for a lifetime. There was no language barrier or invisible gaps between us. We were just a bunch of teenagers, trying to make some friends.

It was indeed unforgettable and we wanted to thank our school, the teachers responsible for this visit and the LPC students, for being so kind to us.

It’s never too late to explore the world and get to know people. Taking the first step is always hard, but it’s better than not trying at all. If you have never tried, you’ll never know.
