The Global Village is a unique internship program for teaching conversational English, Spanish, German, Russian, Portuguese or Chinese to DKU students. Participants will lead small groups in daily language classes for three weeks before continuing onto the Academic Program. This is a great opportunity to develop friendships with DKU students and gain insight into Korean culture from personal experiences. Also, through teaching, you will gain valuable personal insights about yourself!
