English in Korea

Challenge

At the University of Houston, I took a course called the history of English language. One of our final projects paired us up into teams to research and present information about a country, specifically discussing a the history of the English language in that country. The most interesting challenge was not being tasked with a specific Korea, and since English contact with the countries predated the split, we did both.
