I'm applying for this scholarship that lets German graduates w/ previous knowledge in East Asian languages take languages classes in the country at a university.
I have to hand in my application until the end of the month and I have to say from when to when I want to be in the program. The scholarship can be between 7 and 12 months.
[s]I saw Sogang has a summer course starting in June so 7 months will be until December. But does anyone know when the winter classes begin/end? (Will send an e-mail to Sogang, too).[/s] (sorry, just saw the table on the webpage...)
What's the placement test like? I'm currently studiyng by Sogang book 3B but I guess I will be put in a level much lower after a test. (Which is not a problem if I really can study for 7 months or more there I guess).
Is it only written? Is there listening comprehension? I'm good at that but not so good at speaking (that's why I want to go to Sogang...............)
I didn't see prices on the homepages. How much is one 20h course (like one summer course).
From what I read about the scholarship, the monthly scholarship money for graduates in Korea is 950 €/month (that's a lot, probably more than I would need to live in Seoul) but the university fees can only be covered up to max. 4100 €.
I saw the Sogang summer school that includes credit classes on Korean media and what not (I'm a graduate, I don't need credits!! And I have a degree that is more than a bachelor, similar to a master's. Don't intend to go back to school). That summer school is 2400 $ for only one summer.
I guess 4100€ cannot cover the fees for 7 months then?
I hope someone can give me some ideas on the overall situation.
thanks in advance
