Thus, I obtained first prize in the contest of Korean language among international students. We had competitors from ten countries, including Japan, China, India, Nepal, Mongolia etc. Later, I participated as interpreter at International Diving Competition, International Competition of Mathematics in Daejon, World Festival of Martial Arts, organized under the aegis of UNESCO. Within these, we translate from and into - Korean, English, Romanian and Russian and I was appreciated," Oxana Chiriac says.
