On November 1st, The 7th Jeju Global Foreign Language Festival was held at Jeju cultural center of students. At this festival many students had time to talk with foreigners. It started with the speech of Yang Seong Eon, Superintendant of Jeju Provincial Office of Education. He said that Jeju is a global city and Jeju students' foreign language skills have to be improved to communicate with many other countries.

After his speech, many schools in Jeju opened their booths and many participants enjoyed activities in their booths. There were various activities, such as acting, making food, and the opportunity to experience and understand other countries' cultures. The sections with food or singing were crowded with people.

One of the popular and exciting booths was the Turkish booth. They had games and it was run by Halla Middle School. Turkey is a country in the Middle East and was allied with Korea in the Korean Conflict. In the booths we could experience the Turkish art of Marbling. It uses oil and water (substances that don’t mix).

To make a marbling, first you must drop the colored oil in the water and make a shape with the brush. Second, stamp the surface on a piece of paper and dry it. Making it made your fingers dirty, but it was fun. In the booth there was not only marbling but Turkish food. There was Turkish bread with sauce. It was delicious. It was made by Halla middle school students.

Ji Su Kang, 14, said “Halla middle school opened this program because people don't know much about Turkey. If we had it about the U.S.A, it would not be unique. Though my clothes were dirty, I felt fulfilled after people enjoyed this program.”

That day, a director for this festival, Kang Wonhyo said, “I hope that students' foreign language skills are improved and have interests in foreign languages. This festival has been restricted by the budget. So next year, the budget will be increased.”
