Jessie Meier, the 6th KASC alumna was chosen for this year’s Critical Language Scholarship(CLS) Program. CLS Program is a fully-funded summer intensive language program for U.S. university students and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. This year’s CLS Program is hosted by Yonsei University in Wonju, South Korea. CLS is a two month program, during which, scholarship recipients are required to speak only Korean. Participants live in dorms with Korean roommates and will also have a homestay experience with a local Korean family for one week. At the end of the 8 weeks, students take an American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL)-certified post-program oral proficiency interview assessment. Students have four hours of language class and five hours of culture class each day, four hours of peer tutoring and four hours of internship per week, and weekly cultural excursions to museums, theaters, and local events.
