Daegu University, Kim Kyoung Hun
The field trips were memorable! Playing board games team members really helped us to bond. I was impressed with the visits to successful companies in Singapore such as Bloomberg, NEWater and so on. They were well-organized. I'd love to work at these companies if I had the chance.
Every class, there were various team activities where students can learn about the culture and history of Singapore. Special lectures (on how to write resume & cover letter, being successful in life, etc) provide great tips for my job-hunting in Korea.
Inha University, Jung HyunJin
Morning class was focused on General English. The lecturer was very willing to help out all students It built our confidence in speaking English. In the afternoon, there were a few workshops for employment training. I was so impressed with the job-hunting techniques in Singapore, which are very different from Korea. I was able to widen my view to see worldwide job market and learn where and how to start to jump into this market. During these 3 weeks, I can say I have become more confident in using English. The class contents were similar with Business English in my home university, but with more on understanding multi-cultural Singapore. I gained not only English skills but also many other unique experiences.
Dongyang mirae University, Byun JiHwanPSB Academy is smaller than my college in Korea, but the facilities are quite good and well organized. Even though I stayed only a month in PSB, PSB allowed us to use all the campus facilities, which made the whole experience very convenient. In terms of class contents, Business English was not that easy for my classmates, but thanks to our lecturers, we were able to catch up the class with a lot of activities and role play. Also, the afternoon outdoor activities were very interesting, like visits to USS, Newater Bloomberg. I hope many other students can take the chance to attend this study tour - I strongly recommend it. I would like to say thank you to PSB coordinators as well. They really took care of us. They were very kind and helpful to us who can’t speak English very well.
