] I am Kalyani Hadke

I am Kalyani Hadke.I am applying for the Korean language program at the Anseong Campus of Chung Ang University.I am very interested in learning Korean language and I am certain that this program will help me fulfill myself in both professional and personal context.

2 With the four year degree in Computer Science and Engineering and after working for two years in the Software industry,I am intended to pursue my long term goals,which is to learn the Korean language.

3 I have always had a passion for learning langauges.At school, I learned the Indian langauges Hindi,Marathi and Sanskrit.I got the opportunity to learn the Gujarathi and Telugu from my school friends and colleague.I was always intrigued and amazed by the uniquness of each language.Along with the langauge I got to learn about their cultures and how both blends together.My drive for languages introduced me to chinese language and Korean.

4 I was able to take private classes for chinese langauge after the office schedule.I never got the same opportunity for Korean langauge.So,I tought myself Korean using the sites like Talktoinkorean,Korea101.com and few books.

5 I inted to chose the Korean langauge program for number of reasons.

1> First of all, is the Korean culture.Though I never got a chance to experience it in person,K-drama and k-pop are the reason that keeps up my interest.I have still not given up on my dream of being fluent in korean and watching K-drama without subtitles.I have somehow managed to learn a couple of korean songs and I mugged up the english trasnlation.

2>The second reason I am drawn to this program to pursue my academic goal.I inted to obtain my masters
degree specialzed in the relevant field and possibly gain an experience of the Korea IT industry.Since then, I’ve tried to find out more about the Korea and the more I’ve been learning, the more my motivation to study there has grown.This combination will provide the strong background I desire in order to shape my future interests.
A man who knows two languages is worth two men.

3>Finally, this programme,because of its international features will help me to learn how to communicate with people from different backgrounds to achieve the best working results which I believe will be the next big step in my development.

4>My current goal

5> I feel these activities will be the way in which I can make a difference and gain the leadership skills necessary to reach my goals.

6> I am certain that the numerous traineeships and case assignments I will take part in during this programme will help me to gain the necessary knowledge and skills.
