Kicker: SM NEWS SM Running Fair Su-Young Kim, Reporter Kimsuyoung1342@gmail.com The SM Running Fair has begun, which publishes works coded by students taking "algorithms and game contents", which are required liberal subjects. This SM Running Fair is hosted by Sangmyung University’s SW Central University Project Group. To have the necessary problem-solving skills in the field of major, all students are required to complete the subjects of “Computing Thinking and Game Design” and “Algorism and Game Contents” in the first grade. These processes are managed by Sang Myung University’s SW Central University Project Group. What Is the Sangmyung University’s SW Central University Project Group? It was newly established to cultivate suitable talents in an era of rapid technological change and provided more advanced artificial intelligence education to students of the Department of Convergence at SMU. As mentioned earlier, all students can understand the basics of coding through an interesting process called “making a game” by taking courses such as “computing thinking and game design” and “algorism and game content.” Introduction Of the Works Let’s look at some of the works that students displayed at the SM Running Fair. There are lots of students' two types of work such as games, and programs. First, I want to introduce to you a program which is called “Apple Store”. According to explanation at SM Running Fair site, inspired by a site that allows users to choose the product they want to buy on the Internet, they created a program that allows them to purchase Apple’s devices. If you execute the code, a greeting and an article explaining Apple’s devices appear, and you can express your intention to purchase by entering the product name and number of products you want. More diverse student’s works can be viewed directly on the SMU’s SW Central University Project Group website that I write an address down below. Also, schools are engaged in various activities to foster convergent people thus I hope interested students can find the information they need.
Kicker: SM NEWS Thanksgiving Party Held by the SISO Club by Da-hwee Kim, Editor-in-chief / Ji-Min Baek, Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com On November 24, 2022, from 5:30 PM, a Thanksgiving party was held in Room N203. This event was hosted by SISO (Sangmyung International Students Organization), and it is meaningful because it was held three years after 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. About 50 people attended the event, including international students from various countries, Korean students, and professors. Shall we feel vividly what the atmosphere was like at the time? Thanksgiving Party What is the SISO club? SISO is the club for cultural exchange at Sangmyung University and stands for Sangmyung International Students Organization. It is a club that conducts various activities for exchange students and Korean students who want some cultural exchange with exchange students. The main purpose of this club is to have an opportunity for exchange students and Korean students to interact and experience each other's cultures and languages. It is also an opportunity to meet new people and get close to them. There are no regular gatherings every week, but there will be several big events per semester, and events will include Thanksgiving and Christmas parties and so on. In the past, there were various cultural experiences such as a club MT, language exchange, and the annual Thanksgiving party. It is a club that is expected to have more events now that COVID-19 is gradually getting resolved. Highlights of the Thanksgiving party First of all, I want to talk about the food. As it was a Thanksgiving party, the turkey appeared without fail. Professor Samuel Denny, acting as the faculty sponsor of the SISO club ordered the turkey from the Dragon Hill Lodge at the US military base in Yongsan. In addition, there were kebabs, pumpkin pie, pizza, and other very delicious foods. Party Food Next, it was networking time for the group. At first, when entering the party, each individual drew a piece of paper with a number on it, and teams were formed according to the number. A total of five groups were created, and the game began after choosing a team name and slogan. Various games such as Hunminjeongeum Game, Son Byeongho Game, and Movie Guessing were held, and we could definitely feel the hard work of the organizers. Thanksgiving Party Finally, I would like to mention the guests. This Thanksgiving Day party was attended by Korean students as well as international students from so many countries, including Brunei, Japan, China, and Kazakhstan. In addition, Professor Samuel Denny and Professor Jaeho Choi from the Department of English Education, and Professor Elizabeth May and Professor Francis Brennen from the General Education Department also attended. Also, Professor Daniel Craig, a former professor of the Department of English Education, enjoyed the party together.Professors (Jae-Ho Choi, Samuel Denny, Elizabeth May, and Daniel Craig) The Club plans to donate some of the money that was raised from the ticket sales to help the families of the victims of the Itaewon stampede. Interviews from various participants In an interview with Professor Elizabeth May, she said that this party was so much fun and lovely. In addition, she said that this event was good because it was an opportunity to interact with students from other countries and enjoy a variety of delicious foods prepared according to Thanksgiving customs. She said that this meeting would be a good experience for students to know that there are international students of various nationalities that they could not meet easily, and also that this meeting would be a good experience for international students. In-Gyu Hwang, the current president of the SISO club, vividly expressed what he felt while preparing for the party. This is what he said: “It was my honor to organize this Thanksgiving event. There were no difficulties, everything went through smoothly as I was as strong as a rock. I felt a great sense of achievement when I saw everyone smiling. When students are happy, we are happy too! I appreciate all the help from our professors, executives, and even non-executive members who helped us during our events.” He also revealed the club's next move as follows: “We will have our end-of-year party right after the final exam period. We haven't decided on the exact event yet, but it will be held outside of school such as going to the Namsan Tower, Lotte World, Everland, and so on. Stay tuned! We will make it legendary!”. Dong-In Lee, a member of the SISO club said that through this party, he was able to broaden his view of the world. This is what he said: “It's quite rare to come across such diverse cultures, but it was nice to have a new experience. Attending a party has become an extraordinary experience for me.” Did you enjoy reading the article? As the pandemic is almost over, it is expected that the SISO Club will be as active and host many events as before. We would like to ask for your interest in the future progress of the SISO Club.

Kicker: The Grand Prize of 42nd English Essay Contest What’s Your Korean Name? By Min-Hye Lim, English Education Student The most Korean is the most international. This is the most impressive thing I've heard about my country recently. If someone asks, "When did you feel that the Korean Wave really became world-famous?", I will tell them this story without any hesitation. Back in the days when I was nineteen years old, I was looking for someone to text with to improve my English skills. At that time, BTS' popularity was rising internationally, so there were many foreign K-pop and K-drama fans looking for Koreans, and I, who was Korean, could easily find a girl from America to text with. I introduced my name and asked her what her name was, like a normal question to ask someone I first met. “I’m Hannah, and my Korean name is Yi Han-Na(이한나),” she answered. I asked her if she was a Korean-American, but she said no. I was shocked. At the same time, I was surprised to see myself shocked by this situation. I had never thought it strange that I, a Korean, had an English name. However, it felt odd that an American had a Korean name. I asked her if there was a special reason why she chose “Yi Han-Na” as her Korean name. “Because Hannah sounds similar to Han-na, and the last name Yi looked common in Korea,” she said. Quite interesting right? When I was learning English, I was called by my English name. It helped me to became more interested in English and immersed in English culture. If you are planning to learn Korean, how about making your very own Korean name? I will teach you how. Unlike the American style, Korean name is arranged in the order of a family name and a given name. Most of the time, Korean name is made of three syllables. The first syllable is a family name. The second and third syllables are a given name. So, in the name “Yi Han-Na,” “Yi” is the family name and “Han-Na” is the given name. But exceptions always exist. There are two syllable family names like “Namgung(남궁) or Jegal(제갈),” and non-two-syllable given names like “Min(민)” or “A-Ri-Ah(아리아).” Also, there are no spaces between Korean name when written in Hangul. In my old passport, there was a space between my Romanized given name, Min and Hye. Some of my friends thought my middle name was Hye. But remember, the middle name does not exist in Korea. Now, it's time to choose the letters. The easiest way is to refer to the name of your favorite Korean celebrities. It would be better for you to take their given or family names than to take their full names, just as it sounds silly when your Korean friend says their English name is Taylor Swift. Like Hannah said, “김(Kim or Gim), 이(Lee or Yi), and 박(Park or Bak)” are three most common family names in Korea. Except for Korean native names and Baptismal names, most of the Korean given names are gender-specific and based on Chinese characters, which have their own meanings. Girl’s names tend to imply feminine characteristics like beauty or wisdom (such as Seo-eun, Su-Yeon, Min-ji, etc.), while boy’s names show masculine characteristics like success or firmness (Ha-jun, Min-su, Cheol-Woo, etc.). Nowadays, neutral Korean names (such as Yu-Jin, Ha-Yoon, Ji-Woo, etc.) are on-trend, so it might be difficult to assume one’s gender from their name. Another way is to find a name sounds like your own name. One of my friends, Jason, chose his Korean given name as “Ji-Sung” which sounds similar to his American given name. You can have both your uniqueness and originality. Other countries might be too, but Korea is a country that values names in particular. Koreans believe that a good name brings luck, and the one who has an unfit name might get bad luck. It is common for Korean parents to choose their child’s name from a fortune-teller, who suggests the luckiest name for the child. The child’s birthdate, the time of birth, and the number of strokes of the name in Chinese character are considered for choosing the name. If you tell your Korean friend that you know Korean naming culture and introduce your Korean name, it will be a great opportunity to get closer and show your interest in Korea! So, have you decided what name to use? What’s your Korean name?

Kicker: SM NEWS(INTERVIEW) Interview of Alumni of Sangmyung University, Na-young Kwon By Sol-Hyang Park, Editor-in-chief firstname.lastname@example.org Na-young Kwon, a graduate of Sangmyung University's Department of English Education and also a former editor of the HERALD has published an English study book! Let’s learn more about her story and how to study English! 1. Hello! It is an honor to have an interview with you. Please introduce yourself. Hi. I am Nayoung Kwon, a graduate of the Department of English Education entering in 2008. While in school, I worked as a reporter and editor for the HERALD. Now I work in a middle school and teach students. 2. After graduating from the Department of English Education, you have built up a variety of careers as an English educator including teaching at schools, English camps, and giving English lectures. How did you come to dream of becoming an English educator? First of all, I entered the Department of English Education because I had a good influence from my teacher in middle school. I wanted to follow a path of the teacher, experiencing that the lives of students can be changed in the right direction with the guidance of the teacher. Then I entered the Department of English Education, but I wanted to convince myself of my career path through my experience. As a result, I gained a lot of experience from English camps, academies, and school teachers - my heart for the profession of an English teacher became clear. The reason I chose English out of several subjects was that English pronunciation sounded very beautiful when I was in middle school, and I found it so attractive that it became a medium to encounter a new world. 3. I heard that in May of this year, you published a book called 'One Line English from Today (Easy and Quick Introductory Guide for Beginners in English)'. What does it contain? How did you come to publish your book? Do you have any wishes for your readers? The book she published I wrote this due to a recommendation of an acquaintance who works in the field of English education. I was hesitant at first because it was my first time writing a book and also I thought it was not enough to dare to publish an English conversation book. At that time, I remembered what a senior editor-in-chief told me before I took over as editor-in-chief of the HERALD. She said "Place makes a person." I thought it was overkill, but I also wanted to challenge myself, so I started to write a book with courage. The book became a book for beginners at the time of the final writing of this book, but it was initially decided to be made for the basic study of English for the baby boom generation. So, I wrote from the basics of the alphabet, phonics, to expressions that we often encounter in our daily life for each situation. Since there are expressions that can easily convey the same meaning, I chose the shortest and easiest expressions as much as possible. Also, as a tip, I added that the expressions that we used to know in fragments through textbooks are different for each situation in practice. I hope that the readers will learn the expressions by making them into chunks, imagining the situation when they study. 4. Based on your experience of studying English for a long time, what do you think is the most important thing in overall English study? Appropriate inputs and outputs. Also, it should be accompanied by a process of receiving feedbacks through dialogue with others. As I wrote in the foreword of the book, I was also a learner who went through general Korean English education focusing on reading and listening - ‘input’ learning. However, the period that my English skills grew the most was when I found a conversation partner based on ‘input’ and tried to ‘output’ it or when I received feedback on what I wrote through group studying. What this process requires is letting go of your fear of being wrong and using what you've learned confidently. There is something I always say all the time while teaching middle school students – “English is a foreign language to us.” Therefore, it is natural to be wrong, and it is something to learn and correct. 5. Many students are afraid of speaking English more than reading and writing it, and also they want to be good at speaking. In preparing for a job, English conversation scores, such as ‘Opic’ score, are also very important. Since this book is for English beginners, what is the most basic and effective way to study conversation? The time when I improved my English conversation the most was when I talked and interacted with foreign friends through English. At that time, I selected one basic conversation book and continued practicing expressions used frequently in different situations for 2-3 months so that I could stick to them. Based on this, I actively participated in activities where I could interact with others in English such as volunteer work, local tour gatherings, small parties, and religious activities. After that, my lips started to open in English as I kept talking on the phone about what happened that day in the evening with friends who I had become close through activities. When there is social exchange and motivation to continue friendship, English conversational learning gains momentum. Therefore, I would like to suggest that you increase your chances of using English through practical interactions. 6. Lastly, if there is anything you would like to say to the students of Sangmyung University, please. Looking back now, the most passionate time in my life was attending Sangmyung University. As a college student, I had many opportunities. When I was in school, I was able to grow by working at the HERALD, interacting with newspaper colleagues and interviewing outsiders. In addition, I gained overseas experience by participating in overseas tour groups and international volunteer groups, and participated in various university student activities hosted by corporations and the government. Looking back after graduating, I realized that the period of attending college was very precious. I wish you will use your precious time meaningfully. Any experience will be helpful in your lives. Once again, I am very grateful to Na-young Kwon for her sincere reply in her busy time. I hope that the content will be of great help for you, and that her book 'One Line English from Today (Easy and Quick Introductory Guide for Beginners in English)’ will also be of great interest!!
