Hello, Annyong, ���������������!
Welcome to the new members. This is a quick
update for everyone in the meetup
Tech event: The New Media Tech / Social Web (I'm an
organizer) has an event tomorrow: Startup
Rockstars #9. One of the presenters,
Tweetion, is going to demo their iPhone app for Twitter that
does 2-way language translation. Koeran is one of the many languages
supported by Tweetion. Other presenters include FitFeud (dieting/wellness
challenge). You can RSVP on the event page or just
show up. Light food & beverages provided.
Korean exchange student: Amy
Coello, a volunteer from Education Travel
& Culture wrote to say they are
looking for a host family or host person to host one of their Korean exchange
students. They are looking for someone that can host her for either 2
months, 5 months or 10 months. "She is 16 years old
and she is looking to come in August 2010 and stay til June 2011. She
comes with her own finances and they only ask the family for a safe environment,
bed to sleep in and three meals a day. We are looking for host families or
host persons that their first language isn't Korean, but English is spoken in
the home, she learns English and they get to brush up on their
Korean! There is a local coordinator that will be there 24/7 and be in
charge of her activities and anything that might arise. Also the family
will receive a charitable tax donation for hosting!" If someone is interested they can contact Amy directly
