YES Programs



A Taste of Bangladeshi Language and Culture

Radeeyah Khan, who is from Bangladesh and is spending her year in Arkansas, U.S., was among the many YES students who organized activities to share their languages and cultures during International Education Week. Radeeyah taught her American classmates such phrases as "I love you" and dance moves set to Bangladeshi music. She also taught her host family how to prepare a typical Bangladeshi dish. It is clear from the video that Radeeyah made that she did an amazing job engaging her American friends and getting them excited to learn about Bangladeshi language and culture. 

Watch Radeeya's video above to see her and her classmates in action!
