I learned how to speak another language, how to take care of myself, how to budget my money, and how to travel by myself/with a small group of people. - Cedar Crest College View Entire Review
I learned about a new culture that I was completely unfamiliar with. It opened my eyes to the different norms and traditions. - Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne / IPFW View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I was able to see what life is like outside he US in a country I had never been to. I met some awesome people and have a deeper understanding of Korean culture. - Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne / IPFW View Entire Review

It was very worth it as I learned first hand knowledge of the language and culture in a way that felt organic and natural. It also helped me to learn more about teaching English in Korea as I got a rare experience of talking with English teachers there on the subway in my downtime. - Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne / IPFW View Entire Review

Korean culture, totally worth it - Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne / IPFW View Entire Review
There are the obvious gains in global perspective that an opportunity like this offers, but this program almost forces (in a good way!) you to make friends with people you wouldn't necessarily expect.

It was a great social experie... - Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne / IPFW View Entire Review
For my first experience being abroad by myself, I learned to be independent. I think this program is a good gateway for anyone looking to study abroad for a semester. I am also so thankful for being able to connect with people from different countries. It was incredible to see individuals from Korea, America, China, Russia, and... - Cedar Crest College View Entire Review
I learned a significant amount about culture, history, food, folklore, and people. I made so many friends from all over the world.

About

Begun during the summer of 1999, the Bahrom International Program provides international students an unique opportunity to achieve a better understanding about the various aspects of Korean culture. Participants will learn about the Korean life style, historical ad religious background, the economic struggles, political tension with North Korea, city streets, art, and even the Korean language. All of this is made possible by experiencing Korean life through this four-week intensive program in English. All participants will be matched with a Korean partner, exchange students of SWU, with whom they will participate together in all programs. Through this close interchange, and by mixing with a student group half-international and half-Korean, participants will experience a constant interaction of cultures.
