K-Activity▶Nanta Experience

세계적으로 유명한 공연인 난타를 체험하기로 했어요

난타는 주방에 있는 요리 도구를 이용해 한국적인 리듬으로 음악을 만들고 그 안에 스토리가 있는 공연인데, 오늘은 한국적인 리듬을 배워보는 시간을 가졌어요.

그래서 주방 도구가 아닌 꽹가리, 장구, 북, 징으로 한국의 리듬을 배웠어요

각 악기가 가지고 있는 소리를 들어보고 각자 원하는 악기 앞에 앉아서 리듬을 배우기 시작했어요

처음에는 간단한 리듬을 배우고 한 곡을 완성하기 위해 여러 리듬들을 연습했어요. 헷갈리는 부분도 있고 어렵기도 했는데 이런 악기는 스트레스 해소에 최고더라고요. 🙂

다들 신나게 리듬에 맞춰 악기를 연주했어요~

K-Tour▶National Hangul Museum

한국어를 공부하는 학생으로 한글 박물관을 안 갈 수는 없겠죠?

저도 박물관 정말 좋아하는데 저보다도 더 좋아하는 학생들이 많더라고요~

이촌역에서 박물관으로 이동하는 중에 무빙워크에서 사진을 찍었어요. 다들 신나 보이죠? 🙂

한글박물관에 가기 전에 국립박물관이 보여서 앞에서 사진을 찍었어요~ 이런 곳은 사진을 남겨야죠 ㅎㅎㅎ

저기 한글 박물관이 보이네요~ 참 멋있죠?

여기에서 사진을 또 안 찍을 수 없어서 ㅎㅎㅎ

“고마워 한글”을 중심으로 찍으려고 했는데 어느새 한글에 두 친구가 앉았네요

이렇게 내부에 들어가면 한글을 왜 만들게 되었는지 이유부터 알 수 있어요. 이제 점점 각자의 속도에 맞춰 자유롭게 박물관을 둘러보기 시작했어요. 자료만 있는 게 아니라 그래픽으로 자세히 설명해 주는 기기들도 있고 오디오 장치들도 있어서 심심할 틈이 없더라고요.

늘상 써서 잊고 있었는데 한글이 참 아름다운 글자더라고요. 그리고 옛 선조들의 글을 보는데 참 정성스럽게 쓰여있어서 나도 좀 한글을 귀하게 생각하며 써야겠다는 생각이 들더라고요 ㅎㅎㅎ

도서관을 둘러 본 후에 위 층에 가면 한글을 이용한 다양한 작품들이 전시되어 있어요. 거기에 옛 한글 활자본을 가져올 수 있는데 다들 집에 가서 액자에 넣어 보관하겠다며 여러 장 가져왔어요 🙂

한글을 사랑해주니 감사하더라고요

K-Craft ▶ Traditional Pottery

금요일인 오늘, 점토로 도자기 만들기를 했어요.

Today on Friday, we made traditional pottery with clay.

정통 방식으로 도자기를 만드는 일은 적어도 몇 주는 걸리기 때문에 여기서는 각자의 도자기를 만드는 것까지만 했어요.

As authentic traditional pottery requires a few weeks to be done, we did only up to making our own pots.

점토는 정말로 도예에 쓰는 것으로 준비했기 때문에 질이 좋았어요. 손에 묻어도 물로 쉽고 빠르게 지워졌어요.

The clay was so nice as it was for real pottery making. Even if we have it on our hands, it was removed quickly and easily.

종이에 만들고 싶은 도자기를 디자인했어요. 다들 다양한 컵을 디자인했더라고요!

On the paper, we designed what to make. Everyone drew a range of designs of cups!

하트, 네모, 접시 모양 등 정말 여러 가지 디자인이 나왔어요.

There were diverse designs such as heart, square, plate.

예술가의 혼을 담아서 진지하게 임하는 모습이 멋있어요!

Looks so nice with such a sincere mood with an artist’s soul!

생각보다 훨씬 섬세하게 만드는 학생들이 많았어요.

They were more than I thought.

우리네 신의 손으로 멋지게 빚은 도자기를 보세요. 가마에 굽고 유약까지 바르면 감천문화마을에서 10만 원에 팔아도 되겠어요!

With our hands of god, if we had a fire chamber (gama) and applied coating liquid on, then it must be worth selling for 100,000 won in the Gamcheon Culture Village!

누군가 똥을 만들었네요. 누구일까요?

Someone made dung. Who is it?

활동이 끝난 뒤에는 모두 함께 물티슈로 책상과 도구들을 닦고 쓰레기를 깨끗이 치웠어요. 만든 작품들은 라운지의 벽탁자 위에 올려서 말렸어요.

After finishing the activity, we cleaned up altogether the desks and tools, and put trashes out. Our masterpieces were placed on the wall tables at the lounge.

신나는 배경음악이 함께했답니다!

We had fun BGMs as well!

K-Tour ▶ Gamcheon Culture Village

Today, our global group study team visited the Gamcheon Culture Village in Busan.

The village is basically a shanty town, but have been refined so that many other tourists can see its beautiful scenes and enjoy.

Probably the best-known or the most popular thing in this village is the Little Princess which was created by Saint Exufery.

In fact, we walked so hard this day because we were so many that we were concerned that mini green buses couldn’t take us all. So, we took a big bus, and instead, we took a lot of walk.

Sorry, everyone! But the green buses were too small considering that they are full of people when they carry them coming to the village.

Foods are the best. When I come here with students, I always see they buy something to eat.

As always, the scenery is great here.

Do you know Busan seas?

A chick doll is on her head! I remember that doll costed only 1,000 won! So cheap!

Every time I visit here, I see new items like that. Last time, there were no such cute dolls.

BTS! Jeongguk and Sugar? I have no idea, but anyway, it’s BTS!

Those pictures were taken so many photos by people, especially foreigners.

If you want to marry them, enjoy this village! You can kiss on the wall. 😉

What a nice scene that makes me want to jump down to fly!

What I personally like the most in this village is cats.

So many street cats are there, but many of them aren’t afraid of humans. I believe it is thanks to that most tourists are kind to them.

Somebody said before that we can see how people are nice by how they treat animals.

This means tourists and local people in Gamcheon Culture Village are so nice and gentle.

K-Tour▶Haeundae Beach

On January 25th, the World Class team visited the Haeundae Beach (해운대 해수욕장) in Busan to see its beautiful sea and near streets.

“Wow! It’s a sea!”

Summer time! I want to let you feel the summer time!

Let’s hurry and leave~♬ Ya ya ya ya to the beach~♪

The Haeundae Beach is one of the most popular and well-known beaches of South Korea.

Ma-! It’s Busan, right? Come on! Do you know Haeundae? Ever tried Dwaejigukbap?

“From now on, this is our Lexis territory!”

Pigeons walk around us and seagulls welcome us.

If you have some food such as snack, try feed them. They eat very well! I several times cheated them with shell crusts. 😉

This signals can be used in class, probably… Hmm… ELE level.

“Read and write proper answers.”

This is Busan! Hah-!

In summer, it is filled with people enjoying the beach, especially in late July to middle of August.

We can take a photo with a polar bear!

I want to give him a bottle of Coca Cola.

Walking along the large street of Haeundae.

There’re diverse shops and restaurants even including a Brazilian steak house. Our students felt their home…!

Do you know Shinsegae Department Store?

Do you know ssiat hotteok?

Do you know Busan International Film Festival (BIFF)?

If not, you should visit Busan!
