Summer vacation? More like summer study session for Korean high schoolers


Summer is a time when most of us go on vacations.
But that doesn’t seem to be the case for high school students in Korea.
According to a recent survey, most choose study over fun — even during their summer
break. Our Lee Un-shin has more.
The concept of summer vacation seems lost, to say the least, among Korean high school
students. A recent survey by TOZ service group asked
high school students what the ideal way to stay cool during summer is,
and 77-percent of respondents chose “study in a room with air conditioning,”
while less than 20-percent said they would prefer to spend the season by hitting vacation
spots like the beach or going to see a summer thriller.
The multiple choice survey of 58-hundred students was conducted from July 2nd to 15th and released
Wednesday. In another survey conducted by the same group,
4 out of 10 students said that they study more than eight hours a day — even during
vacation — and nearly half of respondents said they spend between 4 and 8 hours studying. While there may be any number of reasons for
these rather unusual replies, the survey indicates that students are under a great deal of pressure
to study — even during the times when they’re supposed to be on a break.
