South Korea: Graduation Speech

Korean-Canadian Jun-Gang of A Canadian-Gyopo's Tour of Duty posts the speech he gave in Korean at his graduation, which discusses why he decided to go to Korea to learn his parent's native tongue: “What’s more important to me though is the one thing I've always wanted to be able to do is to simply have a deep conversation with my parents. In one word, it was this thought drove me to endlessly think of ways of how I could become fluent in Korean.”
