Review of C au Inter nat ional Pr ogram Republic of KOREA Katarzyna Zelek The Republic of Korea is a small country on the far I have to say that the 4 weeks spent in Korea have been and will remain unforgettable. I did not expect to see and experience as much as I did and for that I will be forever grateful. I absolutely loved the trip to Gangwon-do, it was the perfect amount of activities and also a great way to get to know everyone in the program. I am so grateful for all the temple visits, tour guides, food provided and the accommodation. One thing I just have to mention is how surprised I was over the generosity and the fantastic way that we have been look after by every staff member. Overall I am very pleased and very thankful for everything that I had the chance to experience thanks to the wonderful people from Chung-Ang University as well as the Korean students who were extremely helpful and kind guiding us and helping us 24/7. This program has been one of the best and biggest adventures of my life and I loved every second of it. eastern edge of Asia. Although it ranks 106th in the world in terms of land area, the country is a center of economic activity, culture, and arts. Today, Korea is an industrial nation standing tall on the world stage. Korea’s semiconductor, automobile, shipbuilding, steel and IT industries are leaders in the world’s global markets. Korea has also been host to the 1988 World Olympics in Seoul, the 2002 Korea-Japan FIFA World Cup, and been selected to host the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Korea’s past and present coexists harmoniously-with a heritage that spans across centuries and a future that lies with the cutting-edge technology of its IT industry. The city is surrounded by beautiful mountains and is built around the banks of the Han River with the nearest seaside located only an hour away In my opinion , participating at the International Program in 2013 was one of the best decisions of my whole life. Due to this fact I got to know many new international friends and I also had the possibility to get to know Korean people and their culture. One of my highlights of the program was the visit to a Buddhist Temple. I learned a lot of things about Buddh ism, including Meditation and the daily life of the monks. On top of that I could experience a new passion for pottery. In addition I learned the Korean alphabet ‘Han-gul’ at school , so I am able to say 안녕하세요 and 감사합니다. When I go back home, I will join a Korean lecture at my university to improve my Korean language. I am definitely satisfied with the whole program and I am planning to come to Korea again . I can strongly recommend participating at this program to enjoy Korea and its interesting culture. from Seoul. Maja Jurse University of Ljubljana, Slovenia For me personally the whole exchange program was a great experience. It pretty much included all I wanted to see and experience. What I really liked about it was the fact that there were Korean students also attending the program. It made it a lot easier on us because of their help and knowledge of the Korean culture, and in the same time we had a chance to make Korean friends. If it was not for them, we would have a lot harder time, trying to make friends with locals or other students at the university because the schedules were full and getting a chance to do that are not that often. I also really liked that the university offered optional field trips. It gave us option to choose and they help with the organization, which again is not that easy. All in all, it was great and I would definitely recommend this program to others as I am sure the program will evolve and become even better in the future.
