Our 2019 Kim Chol Ju University program offers you the exciting opportunity to spend a month Korean at a real Pyongyang University. But, before deciding to join yourself you might be wondering how the experience went for those who joined our 2018 program! Yvan from Brazil was happy to share his experience and provide a testimonial for us on it!
1) Why did you choose to study in DPRK?
“I chose to study in DPRK because I was very interested about the Korean language but there is no opportunity to learn Korean in the way the North Speak it So it was an unique occasion do learn basics skills in Korean language.”
2) How was the experience at the University?
The experience at University was pretty cool, we had a lot of people working at the university to make our experience the best they could. Lot of attention from the teachers and from I-Ryon the headmaster of the university. We got a lot of ventilators with the 40C heat and they even gave us some ice cream. I was expecting a very serious way to learn Korean but it was relaxed and very funny with a lot of games to learn the language and a lot of laughs.
3) How were the teachers and locals?
They were amazing!
4) What were some of the best highlights of your trip?
I enjoyed munsu waterpark.
Eating with the teachers and bring them near their house with the bus.¨
Walk on Kim Il-Sung square
HOO AND THE GREAT HOT-POT RESTAURANT
5) Did the program help you understand North Korea in a different light?
I met DPRK’s people and try to know them better.I feel I have people that I really love and I consider them as friends!
6) Would you recommend this program to others, if so, why?
Absolutely, because 28 days in DPRK in those conditions is a really good way to know the country better and understand the people!
