Eruda designed an English musical program called “Tales and Stories for English Musical Class.” The program centered on helping students perform a musical in English, and included a script and workbook for students to use on their own.
In order to make the class environment more familiar to students, Eruda chose to design the project storyboards consisting of plotlines which provides general background information and workbooks by hand, not with computer graphics.
“It took us one full week to finish the job, but after we got the prize, we thought all the effort we made was worthwhile, since children in need will be able to learn English using the tools we have made for them,” said Yun Song-ei (Sociology, 2), the current president at Eruda. “It took us one full week to finish the job, but after we got the prize, we thought all the effort we made was worthwhile, since children in need will be able to learn English using the tools we have made for them.” “Winning the contest made us think that we could truly achieve something as the meaning of our club’s name says in Korean,” added Yun.
Founded in 2007, whose name means “come into being” or “achieve” in Korean, Eruda was selected by the Ewha Career Development Center (CDC) for a sponsorship in 2007. With support from the CDC, Eruda has participated in numerous activities and has won six prizes over the past two years in contests to produce UCC and documentary films and in a brand naming contest for the Ministry of Health and Welfare. The club has nine members, who are from various departments including English Education and Economics.
“The unique trait of Eruda is that it focuses on promoting cultural activities in Korea. There isn’t any other university student club doing this because our club is specially designed to participate in contests through vigorous meetings and brainstorming, which not many college students are willing to do. We are also proud of the fact that we can make practical contributions to society,” said Kang Oo-ri (Graduate School of Education Engineering)
“Since Eruda is a club that focuses on culture in general terms and not just in its educational aspects, we will try to broaden our interests to culture as whole,” said Yun. Eruda is planning to hold a special lecture in the second week of May and to hold more cultural events in the future.
