オリエンテーションに行って来ました。 I’ve been to my orientation

学長の授業も取る予定です。彼はとっても厳しくて読む量は半端じゃないらしい。一週間に本を三冊読む!面白そうだけど他に5科目も取る!!楽そうではない!

オリエンテーションで同級生と楽しい情報交換をしました。そして助教授の女性としっかり仲良くなりました。朴教授は何とアドレードで育ち、その後韓国で教育を受けて博士はキャンベラの博士を取りました。話をすると共通のお友達も多くてびっくり!個人的に会う約束して帰りました。本当に嬉しかった。

勉強は本当に大変そうですがこのような素敵な方々がいらしゃる中で勉強が出来るのは嬉しいです。

始まるのは3月2日です。それまでゆっくりして体調を備えて頑張ろう!!

 I’ve been to the KU orientation. It was a long interesting and informative day. I have met my classmates and have registered for classes. It doesn’t look like it will be a walk in the park! There are over 300 students at the GSIS ( Graduate School of International Studies)and only 16 are studying Korean Studies. Korean Studies students HOWEVER are said to be the hardest working students and most go on to do a PhD. I was given some great advice on courses by current students and what to expect. I will be taking many courses by the associate Dean, I hear he works his students very HARD and expect to be reading 3 books a week! Reading interesting books sounds great but I will be taking 5 other subjects! We are encouraged to finish most of our credits in the first 3 semesters so we can work on our thesis. The good news is the subjects I will be studying are cover topics I am passionate about.

After our orientation we all met for dinner, there I got to know my new classmates and formed a friendship with a young associate professor who studied at the ANU. We have so much in common! Prof. Park grew up in Adelaide where my family originally came from and has spent many years in Canberra! We even have mutual friends! Small world!

I have the rest of the week free, I am going to take it easy and try and do some fun things.
