Seoul tasked with complex challenges ahead of visit of US diplomatic, defense policy chiefs

Seoul tasked with complex challenges ahead of visit of US diplomatic, defense policy chiefs

Korea and the U.S. are coordinating a visit to Seoul by U.S. diplomatic and defense policy chiefs, according to Cheong Wa Dae, Thursday. Although Seoul has not officially announced a date yet, latest reports say that U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin are expected in Korea March 17 and 18, following their visit to Japan. If the trip to Seoul happens, it will be the first time for the top U.S. policymakers in diplomacy and defense to visit Korea since President Joe Biden's inauguration in January. The consecutive visits to Seoul and Tokyo only two months following the launch of the new U.S. administration are seen as showing the level of importance that Washington places on the two allies in its diplomatic strategy.

My experience of teaching English to North Korean defectors

My experience of teaching English to North Korean defectors

Working with Freedom Speakers International (FSI) and the U.S. Embassy has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. As someone for whom English was not my first language, learning to speak English was a challenge for me, too. When I was learning English I received a lot of help from many people both in Korea and the United States and learned tips and tricks that helped me learn many words and phrases. I always told myself I wanted to give the same help to people who are studying English. Therefore, teaching the students in the Access Program was an honor for me.
