Academic English Studies (AES) is excited to host 30 South Korean students from Konkuk University, January 20 – February 9, 2019.  These students study at the Konkuk University GLOCAL Campus, located in Chungju, South Korea. The students will participate in a culture program with a homestay component.  Konkuk students are interested in meeting Lewis & Clark students and community members and learning about campus life in the U.S.  Students will explore Portland and Oregon, participating in off-campus activities to improve their English and understanding of Portland and U.S. culture and history.


We are looking for Lewis & Clark student volunteers to match up with one or two Konkuk students for language and culture exchange.  The minimum commitment is to meet with the student once a week for each of the three weeks of the program.  Recruit your friends, and arrange a group meet. Interested students please contact Amy Baskin at or sign up: LC/Konkuk Student Partner


If faculty or staff are interested in hosting two paired students, please contact Kellie Irish at  If you would like to invite students to visit your class or have questions about this program and how you might connect with these students, contact Laura Shier at
