Jade's Journey to South Korea

Current Location

Seoul, South Korea

Hello! My name is Jade and I am studying abroad at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea. In between studying, I will be exploring Seoul and the countryside. I can't wait to share my journey with you all!


Just below the South Korean penninsula lies Jeju Island, where there is a world heritage site!


A lot of culture is embedded in language! Each language is unique. The way the Korean language works is different than how English works. Korean values honorifics to show politeness.

Field Notes

This week I will talk about an organization I volunteer with called Teach North Korean Refugees. I tutor two refugees in English in my spare time.


I've gone on a couple of field trips during my two months in South Korea. Here are some photos of my experiences seeing the different parts of South Korea!
