Let us say Alhamdulillahirabbil’alamin to the Almighty Allah SWT, let us send our salaam and shalawat to our beloved prophet Muhammad SAW. Before I deliver my speech, I would like to say thank you very much for Mrs. Iis who has given me chance to join this English speech Test.
Brothers and sister, I would like to deliver my speech entitled: “The Culture of Indonesia, that began to Fade”.
As we know, our beloved country has a lot of potential. Natural wealth with abundant resources, as well as a wealth of diverse cultures spread across Indonesia. However, in this era of globalization we are a diverse culture began to fade and erode the time. Indonesia threatened native cultures disappear and be replaced foreign culture. Swallowed the rush of the song pop song. Breakdance beat of traditional dances such as Remo and Jaipong. This is supported by the mass media that does not filter the foreign culture into Indonesia, as well as government regulations do not support the selection of the entry of foreign cultures.
Brothers and Sisters, it seems we have no identity as a nation of Indonesia. If you have to admit, we as the youth of the nation became the most widely carried by currents of globalization. If observed, the present young people prefer foreign cultures such as listening to foreign songs than the traditional Indonesian song. Are there any of us who still love to sing the song of Java? The answer is most likely not. Are there any of us can traditional dance?. The answer is most likely not. Then, when strangers ask about our country, we as indigenous people of Indonesia can not even answer their questions properly. No shame? No, because we feel it is not important, we're just being ignorant.
we as the younger generation is a group that looks to the nation.From now on we must be selective in accepting incoming culturewhile preserving the culture of Indonesia. Let us love and continue topreserve the culture of Indonesia! Be proud of the culture of our country!
Brothers and Sisters, my advice is to convey to the world of education is the formation of character building early on so we know the direction of government policy for the long term is the identity of the Indonesian nation as a whole.
That is my speech. As a man who was never perfect, I apologize if there are words that are not appropriate and less pleasing to the audience as well. I hope it will be useful for us. Thank you very much for your attention.
