Korean elementary school 한국 초등학교

Posted in Korea 2009-2010 by Jini on May 24, 2012

I had a chance to visit an actual class at an elementary school near where I stayed. It was like an “open class” day where parents can attend the school and watch how the classes are run. I pretended to be a parent as well and went. I saw a lot of high tech equipments, lessons focusing on the children’s “dreams” and their “I want to be when I grow up”s… there was an English class that had as its assistant teacher a Caucasian male teacher. I thought this was only prominent in Seoul schools but I guess not.

At the metro. I saw an ad that was celebrating park Yoo chun’s birthday. Hm. Clearly not a typical ad. Definitely a great fan power. (I think it was a Chinese fan group. It had some mandarin written on it) impressive !

Seoul Station Exhibition 서울역 전시회

Posted in Korea 2009-2010 by Jini on May 23, 2012

Seoul turned its old and unused train station facility into an art exhibition space. When I visited they were doing a special on Kim Soo geun, who was a very well known and influential architect in Korea. 김수근의 업적을 보여주는 전시회가 진행되었다. And at the next building they were showing a french dance short film collection.
