2016 Language Bound - Application Round 2

Event date: 2016-04-25

InKAS Language Bound: Korean Adoptee Instructors Working to Fill Korea’s Education Gap

InKAS Language Bound was created for the purpose of delivering high-quality English language instruction to students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Contrary to their more affluent peers, many underprivileged children in Korea do not have the same access to quality English language teaching, creating an education gap dramatically impacting their future academic and economic prospects. By offering research-based, high-quality English instruction in partnership with parents, families and key stakeholders, InKAS Language Bound works to offset Korea’s educational social imbalance while creating job opportunities for international Korean adoptees returning to live and work in Korea.
