Talk about any event you had when vacationing in Korea. If you've never been to Korea before, you can talk about how you WISH you were in Korea

My most memorable event I had when I went to Korea was when my cousin took me to the college he is currently attending, Korea University. Ever scince that trip, I've set my sights on that school and will transfer out of any college I will be attending asap =D

I actually lived in Korea so visit there. It's really cool. The most valuable place that I go to is Gangnam, COEX, Lotte World, Everland, Caribbean Bay, etc.

I remember seeing some travel guides in the airport in english so you'll be fine. If you like historical sites there's no need to worry because there's many preserved castles and stuff its pretty cool. If you like theme parks, there is Seoul Land, Neverland and Lotte world (well I've never been to Neverland or Seoul land but my fob friends and my cousins say its fun =D)

Thanks for the suggestions! I LUV history so I really wanna check out the castles. I feel better knowing that there are some english travel guides there. I haven't been to a theme park in years but it would be neat to see! Thanks again!

Kewl Nighteyes~!! ^ ^ South Korea really needs some good english teachers right now~!!!! The president announce today that by 2010 it is mandatory for ALL english classes taught at schools be taught in PURE English, so even when explaining nouns, verbs, etc. Unfortunately Korea just isn't ready for that!!! we don't have enough teachers who can properly talk english~!! u would be a great help!!!! ^ ^

Oh wow I didn't know that! I'm feeling loads of pressure now! Just kidding! Although I'm sure the kids will probably be teaching me some things too! But I think it is a great way to see a culture and give back at the same time! Thank you!!

I went to visit Korea last summer, I LOVED going to the beach.
Visted almost all my relatives and amusement parks like Lotteworld(indoor & outdoor) and Seoul Land (something like that) but the only thing I hated was the humid air.
Btw my name is 장진원
