Dr. Soohee Kim is hosting a Korean Culture workshop on Sept. 28th on the UW campus. The goal is to introduce Korean history and culture as well as language/education to non-Koreans and Koreans alike and find ways to promote the Korean language and culture and connect with the community.
The support for the workshop came from IKEN (International Korean Educators' Network), which is largely responsible for many dual language immersion schools in LA.
