The seminar is organized perfectly and the contents are very rich. The schedule was so packed and each section was 30 mins, 40 mins or 1hour. So the speakers and presenters need were presenting their most attrattration in a short time. So each every minute was counted and there were no waste of time in transition.2. There are rich resources provided, each paricipant was given a bag at the first day to put the give away books, CDs, gifts by the presenters. By the end of the seminar, a flash drive contains all the speakers' ppt file and extra 50 lesson plans were given to the teachers.3. Variety of hands on activities: Experiencing Korean paints, kimbap making, flying kite, caligraphy, drum hitting, tak kwon do.4. Hospitality of the organizer: every day , different breakfast and lunch were provided by the hosting Korean Culture center. Last day  of the seminar, all members were treated Korean BBQ in a Korean restaraunt. School bus were arranged for 2 of the field trips.In short 5 days, you would experience the most popular part of the Korean Culture, history and customs with this well organized program. Stongly recommend.
