This summer program takes you to Dankook University, a private research university in southern Seoul. This is a unique program that incorporates an internship teaching English to local Korean students ("Global Village Program") with the traditional "Academic Program".
Internship: Global Village Program
Students have the opportunity to participate in a 3-week long internship program called "Global Village". In this program, students teach English language skills and practice conversation with local Korean DKU students. DKU will provide information on class instruction, books use in class, schedules, etc. During orientation, a practical training session will be provided by a faculty member, and no previous teaching experience or education licensure is required! If you have an interest in expanding your intercultural communication skills, interacting with local students, and engaging in an enriching language exchange -this is an ideal internship program for you!
Academics: Traditional Program
Students enrolled in the traditional Academic Program are given a choice of courses to select from for their two summer session classes. These classes include business, communication, art, humanities, and many more. One class is in the morning and one class in the afternoon. A finalized list of classes and syllabi are available here:
