Spring hasn't even begun and we are already receiving mails that influence our summer plans. A few days ago we TMA(Trade Management Asia) students have received a mail about summer school in South Korea. A lot of us TMA students watch Korean drama’s or/and listen to the music and it has been THE topic of this week in my class. I never would have guessed that I wanted to go to school in the summer break and many of my fellow students feel the same.
So what is this summer school exactly. From what I know, it’s a five week school program for which they offer 40 courses given in English, which are not only economic courses, but also courses about Korean culture. They also offer a Korean language course. There are also a lot of out of school activities offered. The total package of mandatory fees is 2900000 Korean Won or 1921,88 euro. If you would like to get picked up at the airport and like to stay at the dormitory it’s an additional 311,48 euro. This all does not include the fee of a plane ticket and I don’t think it covers the food cost either.
Although I’m pretty sure I won’t get to go this year, since the fee for this summer school is not reachable within my budget, I do look forward to the information meeting about it tomorrow. Maybe if I start saving up now I can go next year.

Or if you want to improve your Japanese language skills I found this school: http://www.genkijacs.com/groups.htm
And another option for our summer is a ten day surfing camp organized by our school. This is 399 euro and no studying has to be done. Hmm...so many options, what to choose?
