Chance to train youth guides

Expats are being asked to help Korean kids become better tour guides by joining them on a museum visit.

Organizers of the training program from the International Exchange and Culture Promotion Institute are seeking expats to attend a trip to explore museums in the Bukchon area of Seoul on Saturday Nov. 26 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Around 100 participants are sought to visit the Asian Art Museum to make a Korean traditional snack, the Gahoe Museum to create a Korean folk painting and Seoul Museum of Education to try traditional clothes and games with the would-be guides.

Korean students, including those from multicultural families, are learning how to introduce the country to visitors. The volunteers are needed to help guide the students as they introduce the museums and give feedback on their explanations in foreign languages including English, Chinese and Japanese.
