Program Reviews:
Summer 2015 Participant
I felt that the most rewarding part of the experience was meeting the students, listening to their stories and observing their daily routines, and in return having their curiosity and attention when we were teaching. Not many of us in the program had a background in education, and therefore were self-conscious about trying to teach students with such academic rigor. But I feel that both sides came out of the experience positively impacted.

Mandeep Kaur Ballagan, Summer 2016 Participant
The most rewarding element of this program was forming and creating bonds with the students. Many of the students were shy when they first approached us and were insecure about their English speaking skills and it was the most rewarding thing breaking them out of that initial shyness and seeing them grow more confident in their English speaking abilities.

Summer 2017 Participant
Manage your time well. Go into the program knowing that there is a significant amount of work to complete, but that this work is definitely doable if you commit yourself. Additionally, communicate with the other members of your practicum, as good relationship with them is key to your success as a student teacher at Kyunghwa. The most important thing I found, however, is the importance of embracing new cultural experiences - try new food, step out of your native language, make conversation, take the subway to new places on the weekends - reaching out of your comfort zone is what will truly make this experience memorable.
