On the two year anniversary of the sinking of the Sewol, dozens gathered at a public event in Seoul to discuss the factors that led to the April 16, 2014 ferry sinking that killed more than 300 people, most of whom were high school students on a field trip.
April 16th, 2016 marks the two anniversary of South Korea’s worst maritime disaster when the Sewol Ferry sank on a routine trip from Incheon to Jeju Island while transporting hundreds of high school students on a field trip. KoreaFM.net asked people on the streets of Seoul about the anniversary, how South Korea has changed since the sinking, & if the real truth of what happened will ever be known.
It's Summer English Camp time. Things have changed a little since I first arrived. Until very recently, Korea still held Saturday classes twice a month. They have since stopped Saturday classes which gave rise to two big changes in the education system here in Busan.
I'm looking for ideas of good places to take kindergarteners on a field trip in Busan. We're an international class so places that tend to lecture kids in Korean are off-limits. If anyone has been on a fun trip I would love to hear from you.
