In the video, the teacher from SMK Dato’ Panglima Perang Kiri in Tapah Road, Perak, introduced the two students, one boy and one girl.

She even gave them Malay names!

“This is Sebastian. Let’s call him Syamsul. Syamsul lah! And this is Axia!” she exclaimed.

Syamsul and Axia were both dressed in the typical Malaysian secondary school uniforms and sat in the classroom’s plastic chairs. Although they looked a bit shy, they still put on a smile as the teacher introduced them in the video.

This is the 15th time the school has hosted foreign exchange students, so we’re sure Syamsul and Axia will be well taken care of!
