People tend to say: ‘Thousand books are not comparable to a single journey’. It may sound lame but believe us, this sentence is so true and powerful. Three weeks of experience in Dankook University, Korea, will broaden your mind and changes your perception of Korea.
On the 3rd of August to 20th of August 2015, we went to Dankook University, located at Jukjeon, which is 2 hours away from Seoul. It is a beautiful and dazzling city. With all the university students hanging around at shop lots to have some beer and chit-chatting, you will definitely feel like a Korean student there.
There are so many adventures when you are in Korea, especially travelling daily to Seoul and experience different parts of Seoul, in which to us is an important element when you go there. It may not be enough to some of you who wishes to go to places other than Seoul, but you can have option on extending your stay for a week to go other provinces in Korea.
Exchange students from other nations like China, Japan, Thailand and Taiwan are your best friends within the duration of your stay. Not to mention we have weekends as free schedule, we can hang out around Seoul with our Korean buddies. Korean buddies are very friendly and kind-hearted. They willingly bring you to places not stated in the cultural activities programme and restaurants that are famous locally.
Cultural activities are not to be missed. It will be your talk of the day and night when you came back from Korea. Many places and activities we did, such as making Korean name stamps, K-pop dance, Korea traditional dance, Taekwondo, Seoul tour, visit to Korea’s old folk village, Korean movie and musical and last but not least, EVERLAND theme park.
Every day when you wake up, you will feel refresh knowing that you have a lovely day ahead of you and exciting adventures await you at the end of the day. It is one of the many things you could not get from reading thousand books.
Thus, you too can be like one of us! Take note of the application dateline for exchange programme for each university and manage your time well to submit your application forms as well as plan well your trip. Trust us, it’s worth it!
