Student Testimony – H.S.

The presentations were a great learning experience that expanded my knowledge beyond just the language but also on social and economic issues in Korea present at hand. It provided a space for me to culminate my learning throughout the course into a presentation, giving me insight into the research process and how to carry myself professionally while presenting. Being in Flagship improved my Korean proficiency in ways I never expected and has been unlike any other Korean language program I have been through. To prospective students, the KLFC emphasizes a rigorous course load that is bound to have its challenges. I strongly encourage putting in the effort because however much you dedicate to the course is what you will walk away with. So, make the most of it and know that you are your own person and that everyone is at a different level.
