After graduating from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Brockport in 2013, I taught English to 67 freshmen for a 9-week summer semester at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS) in Seoul, South Korea.
That’s where I met my student and friend Dahee. After completing the English program at HUFS, Dahee transferred to SUNY Brockport as an international student.
When she’s not visiting NYC, Las Vegas, and other hot spots around the globe, I have her teach me more about South Korean culture.
Watch as Dahee explains 14-hour school days, mandatory military duty, couples dressing alike, and other interesting topics about South Korea.
