On March 23, 2024, at the IGC Small Theater more than 80 students from SUNY Korea, George Mason University Korea, University of Utah Asia Campus, and Ghent University Global Campus gathered for the "Talk to Me in Korean" (TTMIK) event. This event aimed to immerse international students in the world of Korean language study and a deeper understanding of Korean culture.

Throughout the event, students participated in various activities to improve their language skills and cultural awareness. From conversing in Korean to sharing personal stories from their experiences in Korea, students embraced the opportunity to expand their language proficiency. To add more involvement to the event, students demonstrated their proficiency by delivering speeches in Korean. Also, lunch was provided to students where they had their meal communally, further forging new connections, and improving their cultural exchange.

In addition to practicing their language skills, students delved into various cultural activities, including the intriguing Korean Sentence Explorer and the challenging Korean Culture ‘True or False’ Quiz. These activities tested participants' knowledge and also sparked curiosity and dialogue surrounding Korean culture and the winner of the quiz won a prize by answering all of the questions correctly. The TTMIK event proved dynamic and exciting, promoting intercultural understanding and language skills among participating students. As the program came to an end, students took away an improved understanding of Korean culture and a deeper appreciation for the diversity of the Korean language.
