Dear Korean Language Program Directors,


I am Jayoung Choi, a Korean language professor, at Georgia Institute of Technology. I am writing this email to ask if you could forward this email to your Korean language students to help me advertise my new summer immersion program called, Korean LBAT (Language for Business and Technology). Please see the attached flyer and visit the following website for more information, http://www.modlangs.gatech.edu/lbat-program/korea.

KOREAN LBAT is a faculty-led summer immersion program that will take place for two months (June 18th to Aug. 14th, 2010) at Sogang University, Seoul, Korea. Students who have finished the 2nd year of Korean courses or who demonstrate an intermediate level of Korean proficiency are eligible to participate. Students will take 3 courses which focus on business and technology Korean and visit several business sites, such as LG, Hyundai, Samsung, SK C&C, CJ Internet, and so on. In addition, students will take 2 two-day cultural excursions to south of Korea, Jeollanamdo and Kyeongsangdo as well as various cultural sites in Seoul. This program will provide the students with excellent and exciting opportunities to improve the language in an immersion and intimate setting and to enhance their understanding of Korean corporate, historical, social and cultural knowledge.


Non-Georgia Tech students are encouraged to participate in the program, and they will pay the in-state tuition rate for the summer program. The program fee is $4500 excluding the tuition and airfare. ROTC students with Korean language background are especially encouraged to participate. Through “Project Go”, each ROTC student might be eligible to receive $7000 scholarship if they participate in the Korean LBAT program. http://www.modlangs.gatech.edu/study-abroad/NewStudyWork/ROTC/ROTClangcult.php
Registration is open until March 1st, 2010.


Thank you for reading this email, and I would greatly appreciate it if you could simply forward this email to your students. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

한국어 프로그램 선생님께,




저는 조지아 텍에서 한국어를 강의하고 있는 최자영이라고 합니다.
다름이 아니라 저희 조지아텍의 새로운 여름 프로그램 홍보 부탁을 드리려고 합니다. 선생님 한국어 반 학생들에게 제 이메일을 간단히 전달해 주시기 바랍니다.


저희는 2010년여름부터 서강대학교에서 LBAT (Language for Business and Technology)라는 summer immersion program을 첫 해 진행하게 되었습니다. 제가 학생들을 직접 인솔해서 2개월 동안 (6월 18일-8월 14일) 기숙사에서 생활하게 됩니다. 학생들은 비지니스 한국어에 관한 수업을 3과목을 듣고 기업체 방문 및 남도지역에 문화 경험도 하게 됩니다. Immersion 프로그램이기 때문에 주로 귀교에서 한국어를 2년 정도 들은 학생이나 그 비슷한 중급의 실력을 가진 학생들을 모집하고 있습니다.


첨부된 전단지를 참고해 주시고요, 저희 과 웹싸이트도 방문해 주시기 바랍니다.
특히 ROTC 학생들이 있으시면 제 프로그램에 참가하라고 적극 격려 부탁드립니다. ROTC 학생은 장학금으로 $7000을 받게 될 것입니다.


그럼,  문의사항 있으시면 이메일 주시고요, 많은 협조 감사드립니다.


최자영 드림
