Gwangju Summer Program

The Gwangju summer program provides an extensive English program as well as exciting activities beyond the classroom.  Students visit local attractions in addition to trips to Springfield, Burlington and Chicago. One of the students' favorite aspects is the homestay weekend where they spend time with an American family.  

All of us at Western Illinois University are looking forward to working with the students from Gwangju University this summer!
