This is interesting -- there will be a Korean immersion charter school in Minneapolis. The school's website is here.

  1. Minnesota is the land of 10,000 charter schools. As I understand it, the Sejong Academy is the first of its kind in the midwest. The Twin Cities has a small, but growing Korean American (immigrant professionals) community and it has a large community of Korean adoptees. My family is hoping to participate in this school when/if their charter is approved in 2012.

  3. I've signed my son up, but he's only two years old right now. We used to live in the Marcy Holmes neighborhood and I really love that part of Minneapolis.

    My son has been attending a public daycare center while I am teaching in Korea and he is fully bilingual in English and Korean. I hope it's up and running by the time we move back to the U.S. It would be a shame for him to lose one of his languages.

  4. Dani: Wow. For a two year old to be able to fully speak one language is a feat. But two! That's quite a kid you've got there.

  6. How authentic is it though? My experience with older koreans overseas (ones who migrated after military service) is that they constantly talk about their military service.

    Park regularly starts almost every sentence with when I was in the army... as if it were the bestest thing in the world..

    I make some noodles, oh when I was in the military..

    A martial arts film comes on, on the pay for Korean TV channels, oh when I was in the military etc...
