외국인 유학생 대상 비교과 프로그램 개발 방안 연구
Although the number of international students in Korea has been gradually increasing, the number of students who give up their study has been rising too. One of the reasons for this is a lack of Korean ability and Korean culture, and it is obviously a negative effect on the government s foreign student inviting programs, as well as its national image. In order to help foreign students adjust to their universities in Korea, a differentiated curriculum and learner-focused teaching methodologies seem to be provided. However, in fact, difficulties such students have can be solved outside of the classroom, not inside of it. Such extra-curriculum activities as friendly relationships between Korean peers or staff members, understanding Korean society and university culture, Improvement in language, and effective learning skills for studying their major subjects are examples of the outside-of-the-classroom issues. This paper, believing that extra-curriculum activities can help international students adjust their campus life in Korea, researched a development of extra-curriculum program for foreign students. Through a literature review, it classified the features of extra-curriculum into four categories, and went through a current situation research and needs analysis for improving the practicality in the field.
Key Words: International students, extra-curriculum, university life adjustment, extra-curriculum activities
