What kind of school do you go to?
I am 12 years old and I am in the fifth grade at the Seok Sung Elementary School in South Korea.

How big is your school?
My school is very big. It is composed of students from grade 1 to 6, including kindergarten. In the whole school, there are 1,267 students. In my class there are 32 students.

What do you like the most about your school?
I like that it is very close to my house. I also like that we have lots of interesting after-school clubs. In total we have 24 of them. Our school lunch is also really healthy and delicious. I don’t like the complex school structure, which sometimes makes me feel like I’m in a maze.

What languages do you speak in lessons?
We speak Korean and we also study English.

What is your favourite subject?
I like all subjects, although I am not good in every subject. My favourite subject is Social Studies, because I can learn about how Korea has changed over time.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be an engineer who makes an electronic self-driving car, because our earth is getting polluted and some people are afraid of driving.
