This program is designed to assist Korean students in the development of their oral and written English language skills. This is a major reason for placing each Korean student in an elementary or middle school classroom throughout the fall and spring semesters. This involvement in a classroom will enable students to observe teaching in a United States school and will assist students in the development of English through communication and interaction with English-speaking elementary and secondary children, in the classroom. This is NOT a TESOL program.
