m make-up a student from Canada

This time m (mayumi inouye)’s students from Yayasan Widya Guna became teachers. They taught the basic movements of Balinese dance to the students from Canada in their one week visit in Bali. They came to Bali to learn Balinese arts and culture.

For the Balinese children of Widya Guna It seemed that it was not too difficult for them to communicate to foreign students. Most of them could speak English because they learned it directly from native volunteer English teacher at the foundation.
