Due to the prolonged Covid-19 pandemic, we are conducting the Study Abroad courses, compulsory for the 2nd year School of International Liberal Arts students, on campus this year. In a combined English class lesson, two classes came together and participated in a cultural study of their professors’ hometown of Hawaii in the United States.
Students had an opportunity to learn some interesting facts about Hawaii through a short trivia game, learned about traditional snacks, and the culture of tattoos in Polynesia. Everyone tried homemade local Hawaiian snacks and had a chance to look at various books and items from Hawaii.
There was also an opportunity to try creating tattoos with washable markers and traditional designs. It was a fun experience for everyone and a chance for the faculty at MIC to bring an overseas experience to students during the prolonged pandemic.
