My Study Abroad in Korea Experience!

I've already talked about my dorm at Yonsei, but I wanted to answer some questions I've been getting about the actual program I went through.

I went through CIEE for their Seoul program in the 2012-2013 academic year :)

A few of you guys asked me for this, so I hope I answered your questions^^

I'm definitely gonna go when I'm in college
Thank you so much for this !! I applied to go to korea for the summer with CIEE. I will hear from them on Thursday !
good luck!!
hey you can be a lovely tourfind/guide too
cool
My daughter's program is USAC....and will be spending a year in South Korea starting in August. We're going to need help on what she should bring....and what to do as far as paperwork.
@JaxomB then she's already a pro ;) so exciting!!!!!!
The difference is she speaks German and only knows a little Korean through Kpop and Kdramas. Germany was a month of school and Korea is a year.....it does make me nervous
I was the same way! I could read hangul (definitely encourage her to learn it before she leaves if she doesnt already) and I went there for a full year. you'll be amazed when she comes back from Korea being able to hold a full conversation ;)
Cards you may also be interested in
Hello Friends, it has been a while
I came here to update one of my cards with a new video link, and I realized that it's been forever since I actually looked at this website. I have no idea how anything works anymore LOL. BUT, I completely and totally forgot to include Vingle in probably my biggest adventure ever. Or maybe I mentioned it somewhere but forgot. IDK. Anyway, Snow in Seoul ACTUALLY WENT TO SEOUL. Over the summer I got to study abroad with Hanyang University, and I spent the entire month wandering around the city and seeing some pretty cool things. I mainly used Snapchat to document my trip, but those don't last forever and I forgot to save many of my stories :/ I did attempt to keep up with a blog here (<-click the word "here"), but I failed miserably and only made 2 posts while I was there. Here are some of the exciting things I witnessed: 1.) Learning a traditional Korean fan dance (and getting college credit for it YES PLEASE) that you can see here: https://youtu.be/LCemLdrGt68 2.) Going to SMTown and seeing the School Oz hologram musical 3.) Accidentally coming across the JYP building and seeing JYP himself coming out of the building (I still wish it was 2PM tho) 4.) Accidentally finding the SM building and FNC like 30 minutes after seeing JYP 5.) Going to an Epik High concert 6.) The shopping OMG it's amazing 7.) A cat cafe, a dog cafe, a sheep cafe, and a poop cafe 8.) The famous Trick Eye Museum 9.) The infamous torrential downpours that happen during the monsoon season 10.) Korean dating life 11.) Street food holy crap 12.) Going to a mud festival where you basically just cover yourself in this supposedly healthy skin-healing mud and party you little heart out 13.) Views from Namsan Tower (which I just realized could have been a really good Snapchat caption that I never used DAMMIT) 14.) So many gorgeous palaces like WOW it's amazing how so much history is maintained in Korea There are definitely more things but I'm starting to lose my memory of the trip without looking at the pictures I took :( I unintentionally embraced the whole "let go of technology and explore" thing some people do when they travel, so I basically have no written memories of the trip :/ If you want, I can post more about it, or answer any questions you have ^_^

Korean Winter Street Foods
Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: 군고구마 (kun go-gu-ma) 군 means "roasted" and 고구마 is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! 호떡 (ho-ddeok) 호떡 is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) 군밤 (kun bam) We just learned that 군 means roasted and now we learn another word: 밤 means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. 계란빵 (kye-ran bbang) 계란 means egg while 빵 means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after 군고구마 :D 호두과자 (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! 호두 means walnut and 과자 means cookie or snack. Therefore 호두과자 is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! 회오리감자 (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called 회오리감자 because 회오리 means tornado and 감자 means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow
