Track 2 is designed for refugees who wish to focus on improving their public speaking, presentation, and writing skills. As with Track 1, refugees in Track 2 receive one-on-one coaching from a native English-speaking mentor.
Refugees in Track 2 might wish to prepare for and practice giving business or educational presentations, polish their writing in order to publish a book or essay, or improve their public speaking skills so that they can advocate on behalf of other North Koreans. Track 2 coaches will work closely with their students to outline specific goals and tailor their lessons accordingly.
