One of the most amazing things about studying abroad is that the ordinary things become extraordinary. Things we often see as routine, like eating a meal or going to school, can be totally different and vibrant experiences. They come with new customs, new rules to learn, and new ways of doing things.
In our home country, commuting to work or going to and from school is hardly something that excites the average person. While studying abroad though, it can be a very different and valuable experience for NSLI-Y students and an important part of experiencing everyday life in their host countries. Join us on January 19th for NSLI-Y Korea students sharing their experiences about commuting through Seoul on various forms of transportation. Through their photos and videos, the students will explore the experiences of walking through Seoul, traveling by subway and traveling by bus. They will share stories and observations about the people they meet, the relationships they make, the customs they observe and how they represent Korean culture and traditions. The audience will have a chance to ask the students and alumni questions at the end. This event will be about one hour long.
