Korean Week Gets Underway!


Jul 21, 2009

From Monday, July 20, 2009, Korean Week, the final installment to the Multicultural Weeks for the fall semester, got underway.
Introducing Korean Tourist Spots

Every year at APU where students from 87 countries and regions come together, we hold Multicultural Weeks to introduce and throw the spotlight on the culture and languages of these countries and regions. 

Adding a final touch to the semester, during Korean Week you are able to taste an array of Korean cuisine available at the Cafeteria and have a look at posters of Korean tourist spots and pamphlets available at the display booth also in the Cafeteria. Furthermore, there is a range of other events to introduce the charm of Korea such as a Korean cooking class for students, an outdoor song, instrument and dance performance, and documentary and movie screenings.

There are currently 702 Korean students studying at APU (as of May 1, 2009) and based on enrollment numbers they make up the largest portion of the international student body. Furthermore, the Language Center has been set up and is engaging in the teaching of Korean as one of the languages of the Asia Pacific region (AP Language). APU also provides students with opportunities for real-life field studies and exchange in Korea.
