AMANGELDY ISLAM, VISITOR, EXPO 2017:
- Today I have seen a dance performance in the Malaysian pavilion and I have seen their national dances which are gorgeous. EXPO 2017 is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the culture of the countries. For example, every time I visit the pavilion I ask: what language do they speak, how they greet each other, what are the words for expressions like hello, bye and how are you. It sounds very interesting in their languages.
