SP Jain really gives their students the opportunity to immerse themselves into the cultures of each country through a program called Global Learning. In short, Global Learning are field trips that the school organizes for the students. They take in the suggestion of the students and see what type of activities we would like to try in each country.
In my experience, it really challenges you to try the different activities each country has to offer. Especially in a country like Dubai, where the transportation is expensive and is not as developed as Singapore, Global Learning really helped us to go places we would’ve otherwise not have bothered to try.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, I moved to the states when I was just 3 years old. I lived in Dallas, Texas for 12 years and basically while having only experienced education in America, I had to move back to Korea after graduating middle school due to unfortunate situations. For my first year in high school, I was put into a position where I had to attend public Korean school. If you could imagine, this would be hard for any teenager. Although I may look Korean, I was not used to the language or the culture of this country.
Finding it a little too hard to adjust, my family decided to find a place where I could get educated in English. High school was a a tedious and long journey for me. From public Korean school to international school to Online school to GED, it’s been a wild ride!
