Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of the program was going on the excursions and getting to learn about this history of South Korea. Through these excursions, we were able to go to palaces, museums, and more and learn more about Korean culture. It was also rewarding in the fact that the places we visited were so vastly different from each other. It was a nice balance and break from teaching, and I felt like I learned so much more from immersing myself in these excursions and left with a better understanding and insight about life in Korea as it is today and was in the past.

Time management is super important. You will taking class and teaching/observing at the same time. There is quite a lot of work and it is super important to stay on top of it and manage your time well.

If you are planning on going on this trip make sure to develop a strong stomach before leaving for this trip. Some of the school food is not likely to sit well with the American palate.
