After I read “Does HUFS Help You to Meet the World?” I tried to look into our school systems for foreign students including international students and exchange students.
During the first semester of 2017, I had a chance to meet foreign students from Ghana in my “Korea and the World” class. It was my first time to make a foreign friend at school. She spoke Korean quite well but she had difficulties in understanding complicated information from HUFS websites written in Korean. Although she and her other foreign friend who stayed Korea less than six months were trying their best to understand and speak Korean as international students, their understanding was insufficient to allow them to understand all of the information written in Korean.
I think it is necessary to increase information explained in English. In addition, managers and security guards need better English qualifications to deal with international students. With more efforts for foreign students, HUFS can become Korea’s best university for globalization.
