On the first day, we went to visit Dankook University. It was so big beyond our imagination, it looked like a small town. The next day, we were taken to the hospital by the school for a medical examination. Then we went to the E-Mart shopping center and had dinner there. On July 6, 2016, all 24 participants were instructed on summer courses here and had an interview with the working group. Later, we visited the pottery workshop in the "Art Hall" building.

On July 7, 2016, we learned the first Korean language class. It is very difficult because the instructors only speak Korean and occasionally use English so it is not easy to understand. In the afternoon we had a field trip at ETRI. Here, we are introduced to a lot of Korean technology such as virtual reality, applications, their programs. What I like the most is being photographed with the oil painting technique. Everyone was photographed with oil paintings and given oil paintings as souvenirs.
