Second Language Study Abroad Fair deserves attention
The second ‘CWNU Language Study Abroad Fair’ was held at Bongrim Students’ Hall on September 15th. It was the result of joint efforts between the general students’ association and ‘A-plus Studying Abroad’. ‘A-plus Studying Abroad’ specializes in consultations on studying abroad, educational video telephone, and working holidays. In last year’s fair, about 80 students participated in consultation. Some 70 people took part in the fair this time.

CWNU students who were interested in studying abroad spoke with a consultant. The consultants offered information about the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Australia and Japan. Students got information about visas and language study abroad in the cases of the United States, Canada, and the Philippines. In addition, they got information about working holidays and language study abroad in the cases of Australia and Japan. Six booths were installed for counseling about each country, along with English video chatting with a Filipino.

The fair organizer provided some benefits to attendees and students who were seeking counseling. The first benefit was free counseling. The second benefit was that the host offered English video chatting at no cost for one month if students registered on site. In addition, students who want to do a working holiday program could receive a free working holiday visa. The participants expected this fair could cut down the cost of studying abroad.

Song Bo-Bae (Dept. of English Language & Literature, 08), who participated in this fair, said “I have always intended to study abroad in Canada and Australia. I got a lot of information which is not on the internet through this fair. There was a lot of useful information at the fair. I wish to recommend various programs to other students.” And Kim Dong-Bum (Dept. of Finance Insurance, 05), who is head of the education section of the general students’ association and the person in charge, said “This fair will help to satisfy students’ curiosity about language study abroad. Also through this opportunity, students can save both the time and money of going to Busan for counseling. About 150 students have taken part in the CWNU Language Study Abroad Fair in its first year of implementation. Gyeongsang National University has had a Language Study Abroad Fair since 2007. I want the CWNU Language Study Abroad Fair continue to next year.”
