The group came to South Georgia as part of the educational and cultural exchange program in the Azalea International Folk Fair.

The event exposes children in the Valdosta-Lowndes area and other countries to cultures they might've never known.

The teachers from Taiwan say this is a great opportunity to see how the education system works in the states.

"The education here is very different from ours, in here students switch classes," said Joy Huang. "But we don't. Students sit in their classrooms and wait for teachers. Only teachers switch."

The Festival kicks off this Saturday at 10 am.
