It’s your chance to present your country to everybody! It’s an opportunity to inform others of the culture, landscape and exciting places of your country. It’s your chance to use your creativity and show us why you are so proud of your homeland. Usually the presentation consists of 4 parts – national cuisine, performance, video (it may be your own funny video, video about cultural places and so on) and game (a traditional one is always welcome). Anyway, this is just advice and it’s really up to you. The only necessary part is the video, all the rest is optional and depends on what you want to show the others about your country!
