Korea West interns recently began working at three airports while another intern departed a fourth.
Korea West is a post-college internship program managed jointly by the U.S. State Department and the South Korean Ministry of Education. These young adults participate in the program to improve their English skills before returning home. WEST is actually an acronym for Work, English, Study, Travel.
