Another Korean E-mail, back by popular request ; )

Friendship and community are of utmost importance to Koreans. They cling to ties: "We share a similar family name," or, "we used to play on a baseball team together." (Anything!) A Korean walking down the street, arm in arm with friends, is considered happy and prosperous.

"What's individuality?" My students had difficulty with the 'Personality Types and Emotions' chapter. Once they understood the vocabulary, I asked them to describe the character of their classmates. Utter silence! I thought they'd at least be able to discuss behavior.

So far, Chung Lim Jang is the best Korean friend I've made. He has given Koreans a good name; he's kind, loyal, generous and happy to lend a helping hand or introduce me to a new food/custom. In exchange, he gets free English lessons! We talk non-stop.

He quit his job to focus soley on studying English! He returns to University in March- the first of the Korean school year. Until then, English is his purpose. E.S.L. is now considered a job prerequisite in Korea, like French is in Quebec and Ottawa: our nation's capital.

Saturday I'm traveling to Seoul to buy a camera, and Sunday I've been invited to Chung's end-of-season baseball party with a grand Korean buffet. mmmmm. Maybe we'll visit the Traditional Korean Folk Village beforehand, and I can put my Canon to use.
