Korean Students Partake In New Program With Troy
Twenty-five Korean students take a crash course in English before interning at local automotive manufacturers.
It's part of a new program between Troy University and an elite South Korean University- Inha University.
The students have spent two weeks on the Troy campus filled with hours of English lessons. They've also been lectured on southern culture and literature and have toured around Alabama, visiting Montgomery, Selma, even Monroeville.
Starting Monday they will intern at different car manufacturers and suppliers like Hyundai and Mobis.
Ji-soo Kang, English Department Inha University said, "Just as things are here in the United States, Korean students are having a hard time finding a job. And I wanted them to have some kind of different experience during their college life. For them to be able to qualify for a better job."
Inha and Troy University's exchange partnership dates back to the 90's. So far about 200 Korean students have been to Troy.
