I have recently been accepted into the SNU (Seoul National University) Korean Language Program and I need your help in collecting funds to be able to attend the program this summer. I will need the $2,500 for housing, food, textbooks, and transportation during my stay there since the program is separate from those things. Overall, this program means a lot to me because here in Louisiana the ability to learn Korean is limited and my dream is to once I finish university become an English teacher in South Korea. Therefore, this summer program is an extremely amazing opportunity for me to be able to learn the language and immerse myself in the culture.
What is the SNU Korean Language Program?
The SNU Korean Language Program is an intensively language program where I go to attend classes to learn Korean from the duration of June 2nd-August 8th. During that time I will be able to not only learn the language, but acquire knowledge of Korea's culture through different cultural activities and interactions with students in the university.
Why I need your help.
Through all of this I have been studying at the University of New Orleans and working as a tutor during the weekdays. However, the amount I have earned from tutoring can only cover so much of my traveling necessities. For me, this program means a lot since I hope to, once I graduate from college, become an English teacher in South Korea. However, resources for learning the Korean language are limited where I am right now and this program is my chance to get to not only learn the language, but also explore the culture while I'm there. Therefore, I would love your help in helping me reach my goal. Please remember that every bit helps. :3
