Families or partner organizations are also responsible for arranging and paying for participants' domestic travel to the international departure/return airport in the U.S., whether flying, driving or by other means. By its nature, domestic airfare varies by airline, timing, destination, and availability.
I will never forget this amazing trip! The constant opportunity to practice Korean natively was invaluable and my language skills have improved so much in just one month. From wearing traditional clothes to dancing modern K-pop, I am so glad I was able to participate!
