South Korea

I am a bilingual and I could speak Korean fluently enough for me to take some classes that are taught in Korean as well as English taught classes which most of my fellow exchange student friends took. I was very fortunate that I was able to take some classes with natives and gave me more opportunity to mingle with the native Koreans. I was able to express myself more freely to Koreans, and in return, conceive more cultures and ideas easily. It took no time for me to adjust to the new setting. Having the same heritage and speaking the language definitely was an advantage for me because I felt like I fit in there even though I don’t live in Korea.

Sometimes you may find an opportunity to travel to a country that is unfamilar or to an institution at which you have no existing professional connections. In those instances, International Programs can help identify other UI faculty who already have a knowledge of the area and who may even have long-standing connections at the particular institution you plan to visit.
