North Korea and Studying Abroad: Works from My Yonsei Journalism Class
In two weeks, my project group produced two news broadcasting videos for our introductory journalism class. At the beginning of planning, we decided to work on North Korea's current tensions, startling medias and students. However, South Korean life did not halt or slowed down. Check out these videos that we made:
We were only given one week for each video so I felt they could have been better if we had more time to film and edit. But, I am grateful for all the interviewees who were willing to share their answers.
Today I want to speak on the Topik Test--(the only official) Korean language proficiency exam administered by the Korean government. Taking the Topik exam is a great way to gain a formal gauge of one’s Korean language abilities since it is standardized, although the score is only valid for two years after taking the exam.
Today I will be recounting a little trip to Damyang Bamboo Forest in South Korea! For one weekend in early December, a couple friends and I took a short trip to Gwangju City--leaving Seoul for the last time before the weather got too cold!
