Raven (and family) and Tutor Jee meeting up in Korea

When you create a community that spans the world, you’ll end up hearing lots of stories. What starts with strangers learning from each other, can ultimately lead to many unexpected experiences.

We recently received an email from Aadel, a mother who homeschools her children and is currently based in Korea.  She writes a popular homeschooling blog called These Temporary Tents.  Her daughter Raven actually learns Korean on italki.  Aadel actually wrote about her and her daughter’s experiences learning Korean on italki on her blog.  If you haven’t read it yet, you can read it here.

She sent the following email to us:

“It was awesome to get to meet Raven and I’s italki tutor, Miss Jee Young, in person!  We met in Itaewon (Seoul, South Korea) and had dinner and coffee afterwards.”

She even sent us a photo :)
