Bilingual Korea can be worth it, warts and all

Joshua Chang, UCI student writes, “So when we come to the debate over whether Korea should adopt English as a second official language, it’s difficult to see why foreigners in Korea would ever object to its institution. Essentially, adding English would give newcomers much better odds for a more user-friendly Korean experience. This is obviously true for English-speaking foreigners. But non-English speaking newcomers might also find Korean life less daunting with English as another language of the land.”
