provided by Global Lounge staffs while meeting other Korean or international
Launched on Sept. 6, this program was originally an
hour-long program but was extended to two hours due to its popularity. According
to Michelle Choi, Global Lounge Deputy Manager, there were not many
international students on the week of Sept. 6 due to Korean Language
Institution's holiday, but active language exchange among Korean and
Korean-American students was carried out.
The Global Lounge
also screens the latest sitcoms and realistic shows such as "Desperate
Housewives" as part of the program. International students can thus feel at home
and Korean students can study everyday English.
"Coffee is only a tool in this event. Our purpose is to give Korean and
international students a chance to mingle and do cultural and linguistic
exchange," sais Choi. She also emphasized that the Global Lounge is not turning
into a cafe but that she hoped this program would strengthen the original
purpose of Global Lounge, which is language exchange. For further information,
