We know that almost everyone is nervous on their first day of school, especially if you’re not sure what to expect. We also understand that learning a completely new foreign language may be daunting but we want you to know that we’re here to make your stay in Seoul and at Lexis Korea as easy, fun and comfortable as it can possibly be.
Here’s what to expect from your first day at Lexis Korea:
When you arrive at reception, you’ll be asked for your passport (which will be returned to you during break time) so we are able to process your registration.
You will then have to undertake a placement test which will help determine which class you get allocated to.
After which, orientation begins and our Academic Manager will guide you through an overview of our schedule for the day, the school’s rules and regulations, along with information on our daily activities and excursions.
Following the orientation, you will be advised of your intake level. You will then meet your class teacher whom will provide you with a brief introduction and guide you to your designated classroom. Intensive 25 (full time) students will have to partake in a short interview to determine which afternoon class you will be allocated to.
You will then be given a short 15 minutes break until 10:45am to allow you the chance to either grab a cup of coffee or to mingle and meet other students.
At 10.45am, you will commence your first class. Morning classes run until 12:15pm. After which Intensive 25 (full time) students will be given an hour lunch break before the afternoon class that runs from 1.15pm to 3:30pm.
Following the afternoon class, students will have an opportunity to expose themselves to many attractive spots in Gangnam through a short city tour. This is optional so it’s completely up to you to decide if you wish to participate. We highly recommend that you come along though; it’s the best way to familiarize yourself to the area around school and to meet new friends too!
And that pretty much wraps up your first day of school! How does that sound? It’s not as intense as you’d think, hey?
P/S: You may or may not be given homework on your very first day. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you ahead of time. 😉
