TWENTY Korean students from Suwon Women’s College are now attending Inti College Malaysia's English Camp in Bandar Baru Nilai recently.
The all-female group are attending classes conducted by Inti lecturers for four weeks. The lessons covered are grammar and vocabulary, letter-writing, story-telling and reading and listening to common expressions.
Lessons on swimming, golfing, dancing, and bowling are included in the programme to liven things up for the girls. In addition, there are trips to places like Sunway Pyramid, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Malacca and Kuala Selangor.
Their first lunch in Malaysia was nasi lemak with fried chicken. Kim Hyun Jung and Cho Hyun Mi also celebrated their birthdays away from home.
It is not the first time, however, the college has sent its students for the English camp at Inti. Prof Jae-Young Choi, who led the group, explained that this was the third group since 2003.
“The girls come from different faculties of the college and are thus of different majors. We are happy to be here in Malaysia,” said Prof Jae.
Janet Jang Cho Hee enjoyed her trip to Malacca although she found it tiring in the hot weather.
She was surprised to see fancifully decorated trishaws, something not found in Korea. At places like Jonker Street, the girls bargained for the lowest prices while shopping for handicraft and food items.
The camp is co-ordinated by the Special Projects Office of ICM with the assistance of the School of Languages and Liberal Arts.
