Voices from ex-International students

 First of all, I think many International students can learn a lot from KGC.Because KGC students are kind to us.When I was in business class, my classmate treated me very well. For instance, when I didn't know what to do in the class, my classmates taught me until I understood. I was able to enjoy the class and school life thanks to KGC students and teachers.Also, I was able to find my dream job in business class. For that reason, KGC is my best memory in my study abroad.Thanks.
