Fall 2013, Issue 3

Farewell greetings from Seoul!

Happy holidays! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. It’s hard to believe that the fall 2013 program has come to a close. It seems like only yesterday that we were doing orientation, yet final exams ended Friday and students began departing over the weekend.

To help our students prepare for re-entry into their home culture, the previous Saturday we had a reverse culture shock workshop led by three professionals in the field.  It was a great opportunity for the students to share their feelings about leaving Korea and their new friends as well as their concerns about returning home. Later that day, we had a farewell dinner so that the students could spend one last evening together before hitting the books for final exams.

Our CIEE Korean Language Study Hall was so popular during the last two weeks we had to extend the hours and offered it daily as many students sought help preparing for the Korean language exam.  The CIEE staff helped with vocabulary review, pronunciation, and such. It was also a time for saying goodbye.

The following are some photos from some of our last CIEE activities.
