And there are also foreign participants that study in Korea. This was showing that Korea has a good education system, and has become international. I had an opportunity to talk with these students. Most of them win the scholarship to study in Korea. This is also the motivated me to want to study in Korea even more.
I had trouble understanding what was being said to me so my teacher requested I would be put in an ESL course to help me. I didn’t like it at first, then I noticed that I was learning another language so that kept me motivated. I didn’t like to read out loud because I would get made fun of since I didn’t pronounce words the correct way. I
I also believe that having a Master’s degree in Korea is a very profitable and wise decision as Koreans continue to emphasize the importance of English education. My own Education will open up many doors for me in Korea. I wake up every day and say to myself that I will go out and do my best regardless of my circumstances. Let's do our best and allow ourselves to be guided by the direction of God. I am so very grateful to Korea and I want to personally thank all for blessing me with so many experiences that have allowed me to grow and become a better person.
Becoming a teacher has been something that I have been dreaming of for a while now. It has become one of the biggest goals of my life and obtaining it would mean the world to me. This goal has really motivated me to be the best person I could be. With that being said I want to help my students out with becoming the best person they want to be. Growing up I didn’t have the best male role model in my life.
After 15 years living in Korea, I moved to the United States because my parents wanted me to learn more English. Even though I studied English for so many years, my new environment had a completely new culture and speaking in English was very difficult for me because everyone around me were Americans, who are obviously fluent in speaking English. Studying different
With all the knowledge and skills learnt, I hope to develop English teaching approaches appropriate for student groups with different characteristics and study how people’s way of speaking has evolved with the globalization in which diverse languages crash and mingle with each other. And in the long run, I wish to devote myself to continuous domestic and international teaching activities, achieving a deeper understanding towards second language education in various pedagogical environments and helping children from all over the world have an access to language
The problem is getting people to have a good understanding of South Korea and the Korean lifestyle. Many people have asked me how I came to know so much about South Korea. I would tell them through my interest in learning about different cultures of the world. One reason I fell in love with the South Korean culture was the deep respect they have for each other and their very low crime rate. 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.
There were no Korea-related course offerings at that time, but by then, I had already studied Korean history on my own for a few years. I then worked for a number of years in the computer engineering field (my work involved getting IBM printers to print using East Asian character sets, so I spent a good portion of time in various parts of East Asia). I spent nearly all of my “free time” studying early Korean history, and I spent four years translating the early history text, Samguk sagi (History of the Three Kingdoms of ancient Korea) into English, which gave me some competence in ancient Chinese (Korean wasn’t invented back then). During these years, I also took courses in basic Chinese in Brown, and I traveled to China, Korea, and Japan to visit historical sites for my own private research (and at my own
I have learned to apply these qualities to every task I care, dealing with the outside world in the same fashion as I would a puzzle. Since I have always facing my fears, I learned a lot of things. I understood that I have to do everything even walked on water. There was no concept like “Do it IF you can”. For me, I should do it.
It was happened because English is considered as a gate to achieve many opportunities in social life. People in most of nations around the world urge to learn English due to personal purposes. An example comes from Korea whose people do effort to learn this global language. Korea caught the notion of English as international language and design further action with English as a skill driven their action. Korean people used English as a medium to learn other subject knowledge such as science and technical engineering (Lankov, in Gavran, 2013).
