Ik denk dat de combinatie van een taal leren in een onbekende stad of land, voor mij een onvergetelijke ervaring is geworden! Ik koos om de taalreis in Busan te volgen, de 2de grootste stad van Zuid-Korea en ben enorm blij dat ik de volle 8 weken hier kon blijven. Seomyeon is een zeer dynamisch en jeugdige buurt en dus perfect om de lessen daar door te laten gaan! Het warme weer en het nabije strand zorgen op zich weer voor dat Busan een toplocatie is! Busan heeft een zeer verwelkomend volk, wat je ervoor zorgt dat je je snel thuis voelt. De vele coffee shops, restaurantjes, arcade games, karaokes etc. rondom de academy zorgden voor een drukke maar sfeervolle periode, of het nu vrijdagavond was of zondagmiddag! Ook de gemakkelijke bereikbaarheid van de verschillende regio's in Busan zelf met de subway zijn en bus zijn een groot pluspunt! Ik heb genoten van de kleinschaligheid van de academy in Busan waardoor iedereen wel iedereen kende na een tijdje. Maar tegelijkertijd zaten de klaslokalen soms ietsje te vol. De klaslokalen zijn goed uitgerust. Alleen is het soms wat minder om les te hebben in de kleine lokalen waar geen ramen zijn. Maar dat is echt het minste. Zeker de Student Nights en de Meet Ups mogen ze blijven doen! Ik zou het zeker niet erg vinden als mijn nummer of mailadres zou worden doorgegeven aan een geïnteresseerde indien ik het op voorhand even weet :)

« Niet alleen op vlak van het Koreaans heb ik vooruitgang gemaakt, ook op persoonlijk vlak heb ik vooruitgang geboekt!Thuis kon ik voornamelijk alleen Hangul lezen en basiswoorden (hallo, dank u..) begrijpen. Na de 8 weken ben ik in staat een alledaagse conversatie te voeren en zelf de weg te wijzen in Seomyeon zelf (echt gebeurd!)Het begrijpen van de taal is ook verbeterd. »

Mi estancia en Busan ha sido una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida. La gente de la escuela ha sido muy amable y he conocido grandes amigos. Y lo mejor es que todas mis memorias de haya han sido espléndidas. Lo único no tan bueno que podría decir sería que a veces la diferencia entre la temperatura exterior y el interior de las aulas era muy grandes. A mi parecer tendría que en verano no poner tan bajo el aire acondicionado.

« Oui et non.Cetait difficile de comprendre toutes les explications du professeur car celui-ci ne parle que l'anglais. Parfois les élèves avaient du mal à comprendre le cours tandis que d'autres élèves parlant couremment l'anglais avançaient alors que dautres etaient perdus et ne progressaient pas. »

Es waren die besten Wochen. Ich habe viel Spaß gehabt, und habe etwas ganz neues erlebt. Es war eine sehr gute erfahrung, die man nicht ersetzen kann. Der Ort selbst war super, da nicht zu viel los war, wie in der selben Sprachschule nur in der Hauptstadt. Aber das etwas "weniger" hatte seinen eigenen Charm und man hat ,denke ich, mehr und näher das Land und die Menschen kennen gelernt, und nicht nur den ganzen Trubel. Das Land selbst..ich habe schon fernweh. Es gab in der Zeit, in der ich dort war, nicht viel auszusetzen, man hat zwar gemerkt, man ist wirklich der Ausländer, und ab und zu hat es wegen des anderen Abwassersystems nicht so angenehm gerochen, wenn man durch die Straßen gelaufe ist. Allerdings sind das Dinge, an die man sich gewöhnen kann und am ende garnicht mehr so auffallen oder störend sind. Ich habe in Foundation gestartet und bin in der 3. Woche Beginner,deswegen denke ich es ist Anfängerstufe. Die meisten dort waren über 25 Jahre alt, oder ab 21. Die Klassengröße tendiert je nach woche wegen der Neuen schüler und der,die de schule verlassen.Die Methoden waren super, am anfang etwas schwer, da nur in koreanisch geredet wurde und man erstmal nicht wirklich was verstanden hat, allerdings sind die Lehrer sehr hilfsbereit, sehr freundlich und wirklich sympathisch und jung. Man hat viel Kontakt mit den Lehrern, im Unterricht und wegen der verschiedenen Aktivitäten.Die stimmung war immer locker und freundlich, da die Lehrer und Schüler untereinander offen sind. Es war ein Mini-Studio. Wie das wort sagt, es ist mini. Ein Bett,ein schrank und ein schreibtisch, ein kleiner Kühlschrank darunter und das wars. Mir hat es gereicht, da ich fast wirklich nur zum schlafen in meinem Zimmer war. Es war etwas hellhörig, was man daran gemerkt hat, dass man den Nachbarn beim duschen singen hört oder kleine Gesprächsfetzen mitbekommt. Das Bad war sehr klein und man konnte prakitsch auf dem Klo sitzen und sich abduschen. Was mir gefehlt hat, war eine kleine Ablagefläche, außer dem Klokasten, da ich meine Sachen jedes mal aufs neue vom Zimmer holen musste und wieder zurück legen. Manchmal, das kann auch allgemein am Abflusssystem in der Stadt liegen, ich weiß es nicht genau, hat es aus dem Bad danach gerochen und man konnte es nur stoppen, indem man die Duschtrennwand zu machte, was Nachts nun mal etwas laut war, da es meisten nur im liegen aufgefallen war der geruch. Eine Verpflegung gab es nicht, aber man konnte sich kostenlos Wasser am Wasserspender holfen der in der Küche steht. Genauso gab es kleine fertig gemachte gerichte die im Kühlschrank standen und im Reiskocher war praktisch immer Reis gewesen.Das Haus war ziemlich weit entfernt von der Schule und ich habe im Schnellgang, mit einem fast geraden Weg zur Schule und max 3 Ampeln fast eine halbe Stunde gebraucht. Es gab noch ein anderes Haus, mit dem selben Mini-Studio und dem selben Besitzer, das nur 10min entfernt von der Schule lag (durch eine neue Freundin in der Schule erfahren, die dort gewohnt hat). U-Bahn würde genauso lang dauern und hätte auf Dauer zu viel gekostet, da für 2 Haltestellen fast das selbe bezahlt wird wie für 15.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja klar. Ich kann mich shon etwas verständigen in der Sprache, und das nach 4 Wochen, was ich vorher nicht annähernd konnte. Ich habe vortschritte in der Sprache gemacht, für mich selbst neue Vortschritte erzielt usw.Die Reise war zwar immer ein Wunsch, doch es war trotzdem eien Spontane entscheidung, die ich keien Sekunde bereut habe. Ich habe neue Leute kennen gelernt, was ich sonst nicht so mache, da ich nicht so oft raus komme und unter menschen bin, allerdnigs war es was ganz anderes dort. »
School highlights
« Die Lehrer sind super, der unterricht ist gut aufgebaut und die Atmosphäre ist immer super. Es wird immer geholfen, alle sind freundlich. Die Lage ist einem belebten Stadteil, was wirklich gut ist. Die Organisation ist auch gut.Offenheit, Einfallsreich, Freundlich, Hilfsbereit, Sympathisch.Man fühlt sich vom ersten Tag an gut aufgehoben. »
Top tips
« Die Students Night, Meet Up. - Man würde zu viel Spaß versäumen.Die Ausflüge und Aktivitäten allgemein, da man wirklich verschiedene neue Leute kennen lernt in verschiedenen Altersgruppen, von verschiedenen Nationalitäten. Und Man sollte neben dem Sprache lernen auch nicht verpassen, das Land etwas mehr kennen zu lernen und einfach mal abzuschalten und die Stadt und Kultur kennen lernen und miterleben. »

Your room includes Wi-Fi access, free bed linen and towels, a desk, chair, closet and a small fridge. Free laundry facilities are available on-site and a shared kitchen is also available for student use. The language school is just a 10 to 15-minute walk from the residence.

As South Korea’s second-largest city and the biggest port in the country, there’s never a shortage of things to do in Busan!
