Kathryn Elizabeth Anderson, Summer 2016 Participant
This program offered me the unique opportunity to not only study and travel and study in South Korea, but also experience the lifestyle through working in a local school. My favorite part was getting to meet, interact, and build relationships with all the students and faculty at the schools. Through building relationships with them, I was able to see what it was like to life in South Korea, which really expanded my cultural understanding of the country and the lifestyle of the people that live there.

I learned that flexibility is key, when you can't change your circumstances - change your attitude.

Summer 2017 Participant
After the program was finished, on of the Korean co-teachers told us how amazed he was with us. He told us that quite a few of the students who were shy to practice their English spoke more with us in English than they did with him! It was great to hear that we did make a difference with some of these girls.
