First, when visiting South Korea you will have a difficult time adjusting to the language.The Korean language is spoken in both North and South Korea, but through over 70 years of separation, it has varied drastically.

The great educational opportunity in Gangnam is well illustrated in Gangnam’s 8(pal)-hakkun, a group of eight superior schools in Gangnam. As Sanggon Kim discusses, “8 hakkun high schools dominated the entrance of Seoul University” (Sanggon Kim). Thus, many people move into Gangnam to get into good schools; however, the problem is that some people having lack of budgets move to Gangnam impractically, by lease or loan. Young Hun Kim illustrates, “In Seoul, Seocho-gu (31.2%) and Gangnam-gu (26.4%) had the highest rate of tenants. It is true that many people live in Daechi-dong by lease for their kids’ education” (Young Hun Kim).
Speed Ferry Cambodia: Destinations and Further Information Travelers from across the globe find themselves drinking from chilled coconuts on the pearly beaches of Cambodia’s large seaside city, Sihanoukville. Although the city alone would not win any beauty competitions and boasts a reputation for debauchery, many people pass through Sihanoukville to reach the jungle-covered islands off the country’s Western coast. An increase in tourism over the last few years brought more transportation options to the popular vacation spot. Now visitors can choose from several different speed ferry companies based in Sihanoukville, Cambodia.

Then, the manager, with a voice like an angel, apologized to the customer and gave him a free burger. Surprisingly, or not surprisingly for Koreans, everyone regarded the action of that manager as reasonable. With my previous experiences, I believe that Korean restaurant workers in Seoul provide better services than American restaurant workers in
“We hereby declare that Korea is an independent state and that Koreans are a self‑ governing people.” On March 1st, 1919, a young student named Jung Jae-Yong publicly recited Korea’s Declaration of Independence signed by the 33 leaders consisting of three Buddhist monks, fifteen members from Cheondogyo, a Korean religion, and fifteen Protestants. Its main message was that the Korean people with over 5,000 years of history and a population of over 20 million should not be under such oppression. By having this declaration, this shows the determination Koreans were displaying to bring back independence of their nation. This declaration was signed at the Taehwagang Restaurant right in the middle of Seoul and after the declaration was made public, the 33 leaders informed the police of their actions and were promptly arrested as a way of indicating their strict principles of nonviolence. Meanwhile, a young student named Jung Jae-yong publicly recited the Declaration of Independence in Seoul’s Pagoda Park.

Due to Korea’s success and charm, many foreigners are looking for employment in South Korea. However, there are few jobs for foreigners in Korea besides teaching English or working in the restaurant industry. I think this has to do with the lack of Korean language skills that foreigners possess.Yet, as companies continue to globalize, Korean work culture may have to become more inclusive to foreigners, especially women. As a foreigner, and as a women, I want to be a part in pioneering this new form of inclusiveness. I would be able to apply my intended Master’s research pragmatically.
It was an early November, the weather being still warm enough to enjoy the splendid autumn foliage, when we went on a cultural trip organized by the Ministry of Unification. The destination was Hanawon and Hangyere Middle&High School. Our gathering spot was near the Gyeongbokgung Palace Station Exit 6, from where we took a bus and started our journey. One would expect that our attendance would be much higher considering the fact that our trip's destination is not something one can visit freely. However, only three of the international student reporters confirmed their attendance, hence the rest was filled with Korean ones.
