ABOUT KOREA

Korea, the "Land of the Morning Calm," is a land of opposites existing in conjunction with each other. It combines ancient oriental tradition with modern technology. In downtown Seoul, one can find traces of its 5,000 year history in its palaces, city gates, and temples, yet the country is also a rapidly developing nation in terms of industry, trade, and commerce.

In Korean culture, education is the key to success in life. The school one graduates from can determine whether one will have a successful life. To many Korean parents, the education of their children outweighs all other considerations, and they will make tremendous sacrifices to let their children get the best education possible.
