  Recently more and more people go abroad to study. I’m one of them, too. After graduating from high school, my sister and I came to Korea. Now it's been almost 3 years. Soon I will be a junior. I'm currently majoring in Food and Nutrition in Gachon University. In fact, before I came here, I was very looking forward to coming to Korea since I’ve always enjoyed watching Korean dramas. Every time when I was watching Korean dramas, I’ve always thought how great it would be to visit Korea for once.
  But when I actually came to Korea, I was exhausted and even very depressed. I didn’t even know my name in Korean. But I tried my best to adjust to Korean environment as fast as possible. For about three months, my sister and I gradually adapted ourselves to the life in Korea. Then, my real beautiful life started. Except for classes, I now spend most of my time shopping and visiting a lot of famous places in Seoul with my friends. Every spring, we go to Han River to see the Fountain and ride a bicycle. On weekends, we go to Dongdaemun and Myeong Dong and shop all night. We also go to Children's Grand Park to see animals. But the most fun is to go to amusement park because I can have a good time whole day.
  In fact, I am a big eater. As a kid, my dream was to eat foods from all around the world. As we all know, oil usage in Korean food is less than Chinese food. So it’s healthy and delicious. For these reasons I prefer Korean foods. Especially, stir-fried chicken ribs, short-rib stew, pork belly and barbecued chicken are the best.
Thus, I have been adapted well to life in Korea. I also have a part-time job as a Chinese tutor. The subjects related to my major are difficult to study, but for the future, I always strive to learn. Now I have only two years before graduation. I’ll spend my remaining time with more enthusiasm and endeavor.
