How Korean Students Study in Korean
Something that is very common to Korean students is to try to attain the best possible marks in school, as the competition for achieving educational success is extremely demanding in Korea.
This competition is reflected in the extra education that students receive through privately funded schools, which most students attend after they are finished with their school work at their public school or their high school. This is not what we are used to in the Western world!
Korean education has been reduced in recent years, to an extent; previously the school week was 6 days, not 5. However, many parents are trying to ‘win the race’, so to speak, with their son or daughter achieving the best possible marks, so they are taught additional private lessons.
It’s not easy being a student in Korea 🙂
