Application Open: ISSS Survival Korean Program 


International Relations is pleased to announce that the application is now open for the ISSS Survival Korean Program for 2017 Spring Semester, where you can develop Korean language skills required to survive in Korea.


ISSS Survival Korean Program will provide all international members of POSTECH with an opportunity to learn essential Korean phrases and develop language skills required to survive in Korea. This program will be differentiated from the Korean class provided by POSTECH Language Education Center in that, rather than focusing on learning the materials from the textbook, it will encourage its students to speak up by practicing conversational activities such as role-playing. After learning the materials inside the classroom, a field class will be arranged where you will be given the opportunity to practice what you have previously learned during classes.
