This site has beautiful pictures of life in Korea that are well organized by category. However, the labeling of pictures is sometimes confusing, particularly in the "Cultue Shock" section. Readers with no prior knowledge of Korean food or Korean language will have difficulty determining which description matches with which picture. 


To enhance the site as an educational tool, consider putting labels on the pictures in Hangul as well as English. Additionally, although the smaller picture size may make the pictures download faster for the user, if some pictures were larger and in higher definition it would be more rewarding for the user.

The Website is a picture gallery, featuring photos of the myriad artifacts of Korean culture. Its only potential use as a language learning resources would be the incorporation of those photos into a lesson -- no writing; reading; listening; or speaking. For visual learners only!
