SIWA INTEREST GROUP SIGN UP
Course Name: Discovering Korea and Koreans
Date : 16th of Feb. 06
Time : from 9:30am to 11:30 am
Course Description: In this class we discover why Korean people behave,
live and work in a way that seems very different to ours. We discover the
roots of their value system. We discuss a horizontal versus hierarchical
society and what it means to be in either of these societies. We will also
discuss the group versus individual mentality and which is present in Korea.
We will go over what is considered a typical wedding gift, or house gift. We
will go over Korean do’s and don’ts. This class is very informative and eye
opening, but most importantly it is fun. We treat it more as a discussion or
conversation than a class. We welcome comments, questions and personal
observations during the workshop.
