Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

Originally I was interested in Korean culture and K-pop and I was learning Korean with self taught since I was a high school student. I entered the university and received Korean in class, but because it was a Japanese class, I used Japanese as a lesson to write Korean only because I could not understand pronunciations and details so I went to Korea I wanted to study abroad because I wanted to learn native pronunciation etc while interacting with local people.
I am going to go to study abroad and aim to take the Korean Language Proficiency Grade 3. I also want to be able to make Korean pronunciation more like native. I also would like to make Korean friends and broaden their exchanges. Also, I would like to make friends in different countries where I take classes together. I will do my best not to be negative, so I can actively act and talk to.

Experience while studying abroad

In the class, I have a lot of opportunities to talk with students of different nationalities using Korean, talk with teacher in Korean and use Korean, so it is a great learning study. Even in the classes we receive with Korean students, unlike the language school, I think the teacher speaks Korean quickly and I think that listening skills have arrived. There was also a cultural experience there, and I enjoyed having traditional Korean playing and eating rice cakes that wear chimachogoli or eat it in Korean autumn and evening. Because there is no Japanese child in the class, I do not often speak Japanese while I am at school, I can know the culture of many countries and I can know the culture of Japan again and it is a very good experience It is. When I was in Japan I did not think much, but I came to study abroad in Korea and I was able to notice a good place in Japan. I have three months remaining, so I'd like to be able to make foreign friends and talk a lot in Korean in the meantime. I would like to fill a good experience for the remaining 3 months.
