It’s my first time doing something like this and I am not English speaker so I hope you can forgive me for my language mistakes. I would be really happy if you would share this with your friends or at least Re- blog for others to see and learn with us. I try my best and in future I will get better at editing and explaining ㅋㅋㅋㅋ. If you already know all of this and want to learn harder things you can message me and I will do harder lessons, I can do lessons by request.  Thank you for learning with me, I blog about k-pop, BTS the most, so check out that too.

Yes, There's A Summer Camp Dedicated To Learning About North Korea
On a beach resort in southern South Korea, the government sponsors camps each year where kids as young as six are taught about North Koreans, to prepare for a peaceful "reunification" — one day.

This was not what we expected. Students were sent to a gorgeous beach resort, only to spend the entire time inside a single hotel ballroom.
