“Korean Students Speak” is a project started by a group of current Fulbright English Teaching Assistants working in South Korea. Although the main goal of the project is to promote freedom of expression and creativity, these pictures also provide insight into the daily lives and thoughts of the Korean youth. Since the project began in the fall of 2011, over a thousand students from all over the peninsula (and Jeju Island) have courageously put pen to paper.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are you a high school teacher?
A: The program was organized and is currently conducted by Fulbright English Teaching Assistants (ETAs), who teach English in primary (elementary) or secondary (junior high or high) schools.
Q: How old are the students that participate?
A: Because the schools in which the ETAs teach vary, the students represent many different grade levels, ranging from elementary to high school. A majority of the submissions are from secondary schools, most of which are high school students.
Q: I’m an English teacher in Korea, and I’m interested in participating in the project. What should I do?
Although the project was organized by Fulbright ETAs in Korea, we encourage teachers from other programs to contact us and learn how they could use KSS in their own classroom(s). For more information, please contact KSS via email.
