First time I came here, I was surprised by here's landscape, because here is countryside where different from my hometown. I was really worried how I can live here. However, my fears were utterly groundless. Everybody is so kind. All American friends have helped me a lot to adapt here to live. If you have an opportunity to make a trip to other big city like New York or Chicago, you could feel different atmosphere from here. I have not met before these warm-hearted people in my life. They made me to want to live here as long as I can.

            If you have a mind to study English, I cannot recommend better places than Lake Land College. When I studied in Lake Land's IEL Class, which is to learn English for foreign students, I could not speak any English, even though I took English at my Korean high school. For example, Instructor asked me, "Can you tell me what your favorite color and the reason why?", but I could not answer. Now, however, I am studying regular classes. The instructors are very kind, like family. Also, there are not that many South Koreans here. It means, you have a lot of chances to speak English with Americans or friends from other countries.
