Fifth graders from the Dong-Gu district in Daegu and the rural Dalseong district come to the English village for our 5 day/4 night program. Along with their regular DGEV classes (i.e., situational classes such as Supermarket and Hospital, and classroom classes such as Nature and Geography), the students attend seven classes that have been planned to adapt to Korea's national curriculum for fifth grade education. The subjects featured as part of the program are English, Art, Music, Science, Social Studies, PE, and Math.
