Anyeonghaseyo! My name is Kim Ting, a participant in the Korean Summer Exchange Programme 2017. First of all, I would like to thank HELP University for giving me the opportunity to join this Korean exchange programme with a full scholarship. Although it was my second visit to Korea, I had so much anticipation and excitement for everything throughout the journey.
I went to Dankook University for the session two exchange programme, together with my two friends from HELP University. We were not familiar with each other in the beginning but we became really good friends after getting to know each other better during this programme. I felt grateful to have them with me for the three weeks.
Besides, I got to make many friends from different countries in the Korean class. They were respectively from Japan, Taiwan and China. One of them, a girl from Japan, was my desk-mate in the class; she is a very cute, nice and friendly person.
I also got the chance to meet the Korean friends that I first met when they were in Malaysia. They were very kind and helpful as they planned the day and brought me to all the places that I wanted to go. Meeting them in Korea was definitely a highlight!
I really enjoyed the trip in Korea; it was an unforgettable memory to me. I like everything in Korea – their culture, language, food and people. Meanwhile, it was definitely a really good chance for me to learn and improve my Korean language.
It is true happiness, when you are doing the things you love.
