This post is about “Korean students’ too busy schedule”. Not like students in other countries, many of Korean student go to institutes after school where employed instructors not school teachers teach things related to school subjects. As the institutes finish the lectures late at night . Students have to go home late around 9pm.
Those are students going home late. It could be a strange scenery to foreigners outside Korea, as student wear school uniforms and roam around the street at night. But it’s a normal life to students in Seoul and I am one of them too. School finishes at around 5 o ‘clock and I straightly go to institute. Sometimes I have to skip dinner , and feeling always starving during the lecture hour.
This is a bus station near the subway Daechi station which is line #3. Daechi station is the place where lots of famous institutes are located. And sure is that lots of students come here from other region to learn best lectures in Seoul. I’m one of those students as I live near Yangjae Station which is 4 stations from Daechi station. Regions near Daechi are also famous for inexpensive residential places. maybe the most expensive as the educational system there is the best
Oh, but I think Daechi is not that harsh place. Lots of famous and great restaurants and coffee shops are here and I love to go there whenever the break time allows. This place is yaang. I found this place is very romantic and antique. I love cafe latte the most as I can have many syrups as possible.
Oh this is the street I go through almost every day. I sometimes to to Krispy Kream to finish up my left over home work.. If you find me studying here, I promise I will buy you a donut.
I’m not sure whether education outside of school provides, is a good thing or bad thing. But it’s true that magnificent money has been put into institutes, and sometimes it becomes a burden to parents. Institute is not the thing guarantees good grades. It’s the students who do the exams and check the OMR sheets.
