How did you go to Korea? – Through the NSLI-Y Scholarship
What did you have to pay for? – My passport and all my souvenirs
How old are you? – I was 16 and a rising junior during the summer program. I did the AY program as a gap year so I was 18 when the program started and turned 19 while on the program.
What was your knowledge of the Korean language before you arrived? – For the OPI I tested as novice low but by the time I was in Korea, I was probably novice-intermediate due to how much I studied beforehand and since I was placed in the “intermediate” class during the summer program.
When I retook the OPI before the AY program, I started the program with an Intermediate Low-level knowledge of Korean.
