GW-CIBER Hosts `Business Korean’ Seminar

Korean language instructors visited the IMF and learned about teaching Korean in a business context at GW-CIBER workshop.

Korean language instructors visited the IMF and learned about teaching Korean in a business context at a GW-CIBER workshop.

Korean-language instructors took part in a professional development workshop earlier this month at GWSB, hosted by the GW Center for International Business Education & Research (GW-CIBER).

GW-CIBER’s second professional development workshop for instructors of “business Korean” was held as part of the center’s business language immersion event series. It was led by Young-Key Kim-Renaud and Miok D. Pak, both GW professors of Korean who are part of the GW-CIBER business language faculty team.

The workshop’s objective was to give participants an opportunity to learn methods for teaching the Korean language in a business context.

Speakers included the minister for economic affairs from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Washington, D.C., who spoke about the state of the Korean-U.S. economic and trade relations. Representatives from private industry compared Korean and American business cultures and discussed the globalization of Korean business. The group visited the International Monetary Fund, where they heard a presentation on Korea and the IMF.
