Monash University Korean Studies would like to welcome a new Korean language teacher. This semester (S1, 2019) HeeKyung Ahn will be teaching ATS1171/2171 Korean Introductory 1. Heekyung previously taught for three semesters at the University of Queensland while she was studying for a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics. She has also worked at Charles Sturt University and the Holmes Institute in Melbourne as an academic advisor and learning management coordinator. Prior to coming to Australia from South Korea in 2012, she spent seven years working in primary schools in Korea for seven years.
“I wasn’t thinking about career prospects, money, corporate ladders, or any of those ‘real-world’ practicalities. All I knew was that I wanted to speak foreign languages.”
That’s Rachel King. She’s a recent graduate of the Master of Interpreting and Translations Studies (MITS) and is currently based in Lyon, one of France’s cultural melting pots that radiates both history and sophistication.
