A collaborative English program organized by HUFS and Seoul's Dongdaemun Ward office began its three-month curriculum course for residents of the ward, where the University is located, on Sept. 3.
The program, known as HUFS Local Residents' Academy, has been held in the regular semesters since 2011. It is an opportunity for HUFS’ neighbors to receive advanced and quality English education at a reasonable tuition fee of 50,000 won (US$44.54).
In the course, the 18th of its kind, participants are to take English conversation classes as part of their efforts to acquire linguistic fluency that befits the current of globalization. Classes are divided into three groups, depending on the levels of enrollees, in order to enhance the effectiveness and quality of the program.
The program has been directed by the professors of the Dept. of English Literature and Culture, and the number of applicants has always exceeded the preestablished quota.
