"Studying abroad will benefit me in the future as it has given myself a greater understanding of the Korean culture and people."

Why did you choose to study abroad in South Korea?

I chose to study abroad in South Korea since I found their culture and language to be unique as well as their history and people. South Korea's entertainment scene is rather popular nowadays in the world so I thought it would be a good experience to see for myself while it is still in its height. It's a once in a lifetime experience to travel across the world to a place that I've wanted to go to for the past 3 years and it works towards my degree so I'm grateful for this experience.

What was your favorite class you took at Dankook?

During my first semester at Dankook University, my favorite class was the Elementary Korean Writing class. It was not necessarily about the subject in tale but the classmates and the teacher which made the class the most enjoyable experience while learning here. This class, in particular, was the class that I looked forward to the most during the week.
