LTI Korea Takes Regular Course Students out on a Field Trip
  LTI Korea took students from the eight batch of the Regular Course at its Translation Academy on a field trip to Andong and Mungyeong in North Gyeongsang Province from April 19 to 21. This trip was organized as an extension of the “Understanding Korean Culture” class at the Academy, in collaboration with the Advanced Center for Korean Studies, to help the students experience Korean culture firsthand and learn about the Korean people’s outlook on nature and their traditional community life.   As the first event, the students learnt how to make the famous Andong sikhye, a classic local food of the Andong region. Next, the students listened to a lecture on the topic “Gom-sa-geum: The Aesthetics of Slowness and Waiting” that helped them understand the wisdom of traditional Korean culinary culture that valued the authentic taste acquired by slowly aging natural ingredients. - Making Andong sikhye   The students then visited the Dosan Seowon, a memorial built to honor the learning and virtue of Yi Hwang, one of the most prominent Korean Confucian scholars of the Joseon Dynasty. The students listened to the tour guide’s explanation as they explored the site of the Dosan Seodang (lecture hall) where Yi Hwang lived and taught his disciples, and learnt about his life and achievements.     The last destination for the day was Gunja Village where the Ye-an branch of the Gwangsan Kim clan has dwelled for nearly 600 years since the beginning of early Joseon Dynasty. Within the antique architectural environs, the students experienced the Korean people’s traditional culture of enjoying pungryu music by learning pungmul nori. - Students learning samul nori in a vintage setting   On the second day of the trip, the students visited Buyongdae Cliff and Hahoe Folk Village. Before heading to the village, the students enjoyed a panoramic view of the village from the Buyongdae Cliff. At the Hahoe Folk Village, the students look around the old houses and experienced traditional games such as trapeze and seesaw. - Group photograph at Hahoe Folk Village   In the afternoon, the students visited the Confucian Culture Museum located within the Advanced Center for Korean Studies and viewed traditional woodblocks that were recently added to UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register. The students then moved to the auditorium to learn the Hahoe Byeolsingut talnori, designated as important intangible cultural heritage No. 69, under the guidance of Mr. Lee Sang-ho, himself designated as a human cultural asset. - Group photograph of students wearing talnori costume, together with Mr. Lee Sang-ho   On the last day of the trip, the students travelled to Mungyeong, where they experienced making Kimchi by using an enzyme extract created by fermenting Omija (five flavor berry), which is a local produce of Mungyeong. - Students learning how to make omija Kimchi   This field trip proved to be an enriching experience for the students of the Translation Academy as they were able to experience firsthand the traditional lifestyle of Koreans and deepen their knowledge of traditional fermented foods.
