MONTEREY, Calif. – Asian School II at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center, Presidio of Monterey, California, held the 15th Annual Korean Speech Contest June 29.

The contest provides students with an opportunity to showcase their Korean language ability and cultural awareness.

Students also performed various Korean pop songs on stage. Students who study Korean are not only encouraged to learn about traditional songs but also modern music such as those performed during the contest.

Building on a foundation of language and cultural knowledge is a concept taught at DLIFLC and the institute has found that it aids in language improvement. Asian School II has been holding the Korean speech contest every year during the week of the anniversary of the Korean War.
