Q: What level of English proficiency is required for the program?
A: Most language schools conduct a proficiency test at enrollment. You will be divided into classes according to your language ability so there is no need to worry even if you are a beginner in either English or Korean.
Nevertheless, it is advisable to have at least a minimum level of language proficiency before going to study abroad.
Q: How much money do I need to bring to the country for my study abroad program?
A: The amount of money you need depends on the length of your study abroad period, but it is advisable not to bring excessive amounts of money with you.
Pickpocketing and thefts occur in some countries and it is important to keep your funds dispersed, such as cash, credit cards and cashless payments.
Q: Is it necessary for me to apply for a credit card?
A: There is no need to have more than one card but it is a good idea to apply for one.
In developed countries such as the United States, cashless shopping is more convenient than paying in cash. Credit cards are often accepted in large shopping malls and city centers. However, be aware that some local stores may not accept credit cards.
The recommended brands of credit cards are VISA and MasterCard.
