Three South Korean teachers have paid a visit to Midhurst Rother College.

Midhurst Rother College students, Gemma Bell, Natascha Caws, Gaia Davies and Beth Smith were able to hone their Korean language skills during a recent visit to the College by the teachers.

The students, who have all decided to learn Korean outside of their school curriculum, took the chance to meet and work with the visiting teachers, using the time to practice their speaking skills whilst gaining an insight into Korean culture.

The trip followed on from the successful visit by Chinese teachers in December, with English teachers Ms Son Meelin, Ms Choi Jeong Ham and Ms Kim Ji Hye, enjoying an immersive two week period at the College as part of an international Chichester University course that provides foreign teachers with a first-hand insight into the British education system.

The Korean teachers were impressed with the wide range of activities and subjects on offer at the College and commented on the outstanding behaviour of students throughout their visit. They look forward to taking some of the observed teaching practices back to their home school.
