Aaron Michael Rule, Fall 2015 Participant
My favorite part about this program was not only the affordability, but the last opportunity to explore a new experience before starting my professional life. With this program leading into my final spring semester of my college education, I found this program to be the best option for me. I was able to not only grow as a a student, but a person. After this program was over, I found a new passion for international architecture. It was something I never planned to happen. I just happened unexpectedly.

I believe that learning the language before they move to Korea would be very useful. I had an amazing time overall, but knowing the language would enhance the experience of being part of the culture and open a Pandora's Box of opportunity and engagement. When I return to Korea, I will make sure to have a good understanding of the language.

Learning basics of the language (in this case, learning to read hangul) is an incredible help. It may seem obvious, but showing respect to the culture and showing people you are interested in them helps so much. Obviously, the functional aspect of understanding what it is you are buying or where you are going is helpful, but people appreciate when foreigners make the effort (especially in a place like Korea, where it's not completely necessary, so foreigners tend to have a bad reputation).
