At the opening ceremony, students staged a spectacular costume fashion show. They were dressed in unique traditional costumes that stood for countries of languages they were learning, such as traditional royal costumes of Europe, goddess costumes in the Greek myth, Chinese Han-styled costumes, and so forth. This show was not only about costumes because performers perfectly displayed cultural elements through proper etiquette, language skills, etc.

At those stands, every country’s specialties, culture, and folk customs were displayed and introduced by students and teachers. When asked what the festival meant to them, a student who studied Hebrew and served at the Israel cultural display stand said they could present the beauty of the ancient language Hebrew and Israeli culture to more people. A teacher who taught the Vietnamese language said this festival provided an ideal stage for students to practice what they learned.
