In Argentina two students - Segalo Alexandro and Badilio Pablo Daniel performed a modern song in Spanish, talked about traditions of their country and played an Argentinean game with the guests. In Nigeria Father Frost and Snegurochka met Emech Promis who sang melodic Halleluiah and Ese Titus Ugotchukwu who performed a fast Nigerian dance. Chinese students fully represented their culture by singing a song and plying a Chinese game.
After that Benjamin Fidler suggested that everyone should play a game that exists all over the world – “Musical chairs”. International students eagerly took part in this fun game. The winner was a Nigerian student Solomon Osakwe.
