Cheongju continues to expand its English educational programs and provides more opportunities for those interested in teaching English in Cheongju.
The Global Citizenship Education Department (Director Young-rok Oh) of the Chungcheongbuk-do International Education Center is operating Global Citizenship Classes for 1,600 students from 10 schools in Cheongju from May 19 (Thu) to July 14 (Thu).
In the Visiting Global Citizenship Class, eight native-speaking teachers visit elementary, middle and high schools throughout Cheongju to teach English through topics such as cultural diversity, peace, climate crisis, disasters, relief work, and the United Nations.
Through this class, students learn to recognize and respect other cultures and have time to reflect on their role as global citizens to communicate and collaborate their ideas and thoughts with those who have been hired to teach English.
Director Oh Young-rok of the Chungcheongbuk-do International Education Center said, “We will continue to operate visiting English programs to support the diversification of school curriculum and to strengthen education for international understanding, and we will strive to realize a happy educational community.”
Chungcheongbuk-do International Education Center has been a big advocate in the local area for utilizing native-speaking teachers in English learning environments.
