Summer 2018 Participant
This internship made me fall in love with South Korea! Even though the culture is so different from my own, that's what made traveling to South Korea so exciting. Teaching at the school brought me so much joy, as well. The students were so attentive and eager to learn not only the language, but American culture and customs. They work so hard all the time, in everything they do, and it inspired me every day I was there. Even though I taught them, I was learning so much while I was there, about the language and the culture. Everyone was so kind and welcoming to us interns. If I ever had a chance to return to South Korea, I would not hesitate to go!

Sophie Sooyoun Kim, Summer 2017 Participant
I think the places where we went for weekend trips were really great. It broadened our view of the Korean cultures and traditions. I had a great time being able to look around Korea and learn so much.

With this internship, I was able to study abroad to the beautiful country of Korea. When first arriving, I thought I would enjoy traveling to various locations and cities in Korea the most; however, after bonding and connecting with my students for a month period, I realized that spending time and creating wonderful memories with my students will stay with my for the rest of my life. Throughout my time at the school and exploring Korea, I had a blast indulging myself in the culture and making wonderful friendships. I learned to live each day to its fullest and simply enjoy life as it comes.
