Korean association teaches others about their culture

Tutoring program helps students interact

The Korean Student Association recruited ASU students from Jan. 21 to Jan. 26 to participate in their Korean Tutoring Program.
The program is designed to give ASU students the opportunity to learn Korean and for both parties to share their American and Korean cultures with each other. There is no fee for students who want to participate.
Students are paired with tutors by gender and on a first-come-first-served basis.  Jung In Park, member of the KSA, said usually more students sign up than there are available tutors. Students are then put on a waiting list and are assigned to tutors as more become available.
The program lasts for about two months, during which the tutor prepares lessons for the student.
“We believe that the time and effort that you commit to the program will definitely pay off,” Park said.
At the end of the semester, the KSA will host the Korean Entertainment Event. The event will consist of a Korean language quiz and a variety of other games for both the students and the tutors to participate in.
“On this day, both the tutor and student will see how much they learned during the Korean Tutoring Program,” Park said.
The KSA will also prepare food and gifts for the participants.
