YAY! This is something that I am very very very excited about!! 😀 😀 I attended the 2008 and 2009 contest, there wasn’t one in 2010, I was away in 2011 and now it’s back!! 😀 😀 For some strange reason, I’m super happy about standing in front of everybody and speaking in Korean ><; Applications for this year’s contest will be open on the 8th of October! The following is taken from the SKIS website.

I’m sooooo definitely going to be there 😀 As a spectator or contestant, I don’t know yet. We’ll see. 😀 😀 It’s kinda strange, because in another (more detailed) briefing material that I’ve received from the school, prize winners (meaning those who won 1st / 2nd) from 2005-2011 are not eligible to apply, which means those who have won 3rd are still eligible. Those who have stayed in Korea for more than one year are not eligible too. (I haven’t!!!)
In any case, go apply!!! 😀 😀 hahaha it’ll be super fun to see all the Korean learners around! Even if you feel that you are not ready it, come for the event!!
