Self-Study

In Qingdao Daewon School, each class is 50 minutes long for all grades. There are 5 minute breaks between classes. The QDS students may utilize the combined Lunchtime and 질문교실 of 80 minutes for advisement and/or eating. Time will be allotted for ‘질문교실’ purposes. ‘질문교실’ gives students the opportunity for individual consultation with teachers or for small group interaction with peers as they pursue and extend the study. 질문교실 also enables students to personalize their learning experience.
