Dr. Choi Hoon Young shared his insights into learning a Korean language. This is a very good idea, because the Korean Language is the best way to know and enjoy this beautiful country, its people, traditions, and culture. He said anybody can surf over the internet using LearnKoreanLanguage.com which is your bridge to the Korean language, culture, and traditions.
Learning Korean can be challenging, but definitely not bad! It can in fact be extremely fun to learn. So why wait? Let’s get started and begin to Learn Korean, he added.
Here you’ll find some useful resources to help you comprehend the Korean Language better. Although it’s spoken by a reasonable number of people, almost all of them live in Korea and other Asian countries. Maybe the main significance of this language is the economic growth of Korea, where people still can find interesting business opportunities.
In Korean words, here are the commonly used expressions which can also be found in the internet:
Hello : annyong hashimnigga (formal)
Good bye: (to someone leaving) annyonghi kaseyo
Good bye: (to someone staying) annyonghi kyeseyo
Please : put’ak hamnida
Thank you : kamsa hamnida

On the other hand, the second speaker Dr. Tomas Espina shared also his insights into good governance and the roles of the PTA to the school like Guindaruhan National High School. He said the PTA is like a boat where there is a captain and the others are the crew members. The boat can’t sail smoothly if the captain is not directing properly. It is the same as the roles of the PTA to the school where officers will support morally and financially for the success of Guindaruhan National High School. The crew members are the teachers and parents who also obey orders of the captain and work together as one “happy family.”
Finally, good governance results in productivity not only on the promotion and highest percentage of the MPS but also on the success of the school and students’ academic progress and competence.
