From January 5th to 20th of 2016, 28 UOS students of Winter Overseas Volunteer Program had been Kyrgyzstan safely with three commanders for understanding difference of each culture by exchanging intercultural experience and developing spirit of sharing. During the program, UOS students mainly taught Han-gul and Korean culture to Kyrgyzstan students and improved the condition of faculty.

Even though the danger of terror has been spread worldwide, participants of Winter Overseas Volunteer Program felt safe and comfortable while staying in Kyrgyzstan. Ji-ann Bae (Dept. of School of Economics, ’14) said that there was no problem with public security because the host of Korean guest house where the members of program stayed was with them as a role of guide during program and a simultaneous translator was with each person while doing personal activities.

Students who took part in the program showed satisfaction to their experience in Kyrgyzstan. Bae mentioned, “Teaching Korean to Kyrgyzstan students was worth. It was great experience when students finally read and wrote Hangeul themselves after we taught them.” Su-in Yoo (Dept. of International Relations, ’14) commended about good systematic organization of program itself and cooperative participation of volunteers.

However, two students both pointed out about the harsh schedule and physical tiredness of the program because there was not enough time to rest while volunteering. Bae also insisted about the overall educational process of the program. She said, “Even though the program has been in process for some years, basic frame of the program was quite lax. We used same teaching material that had been used from before. It would be great if educational content and curriculum are fixed so that learners and teachers will not be confused.”
