  •  The Korean Language Program (KLP) is looking for volunteer Korean students for its "K-Language Buddies (한국어 도우미) Program" at UW-Madison.  Volunteer students will be paired with the current Korean langauge students at the KLP for language exchange.  If you are interested in joing this program, contact Prof. BJ Lim (blim3@wisc.edu) for further information.


The Korean Language Program (KLP) at UW-Madison

The KLP is currently offering four years of Korean language instruction from beginning to advanced levels.  Unfortunately, the UW-Madison does not offer a major in Korean, yet, but hopes are high because EALL and the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) at UW-Madison are working hard to launch a major in Korean in the near future.
