English has a lot of idioms. These are expressions that have a separate meaning from their literal meaning. One thing about English is that the number of idioms is really high, so no one speaker can learn them all.

Have you ever seen the public service announcement, 'Language Purification-Talk to Me Quickly'? The short announcement on TV shows the image of teenagers who can't continue a conversation without using swear words.
 
Authorities issued a “Heat wave” warning last Sunday for the Chungbuk province. Nam In-mo, a 21-year-old student living in Cheongju, stayed in his house with only a fan. He said, “I took a shower to cool off.
 
Nowadays, many university students study hard and build their careers to get stable jobs. However, the notion of a permanent job has disappeared. Many people who have jobs are preparing for their next careers. Because of the recession and unemployment crisis, the number of university students who want to establish their own companies is increasing.
 
The Distribution Industry Development Law was amended to protect traditional markets and small businesses. Thus, major discount stores such as Emart, Homeplus, Lottemart and other Super Supermarkets(SSM) have to be shut down for a day or two each month.
 
Broadcasters(MBC, KBS, YTN) have come out on strike because the broadcasters’ presidents, who were appointed by the government, put pressure on many programs that criticise government policies.
 
Ahn Cheol-soo announced his candidacy in the coming presidential election. All eyes are focused on his movement because Ahn has been very popular with people aged 20 to 40 years old. Non-politicians' sorties into politics have often occurred so far.

The conclusion is that the ways are not effective measurements but just provocative ones to cover up the incidents.
 
Now, we are living in the age of globalization. Inspired by the Ministry of Education and Science Technology(MEST)’s international students promotion policy, the number of international students who reside within the country has been rapidly increasing, with continuous growth of double figures except last year.
 
Last year, the whole country was in an uproar over 'half-price tuition' demonstrations. Many people are divided into pros and cons. The government made the National Scholarship(NS) as an alternative to half-price tuition. The total amount of money supporting higher education is approximately 1.8 trillion won through the NS by the government. The NS combined the Future Dream scholarship, the Hope Dream scholarship and the Superiority Dream scholarship. The NS is divided into two categories, type 1 and type 2. The minimum G.P.A to receive the NS is above 3.0 point. Type 1 is offered to students from the bottom 5 income groups(roughly 29 million won a year). Type 2 is also awarded to the students from the bottom 9 income groups(roughly 54 million won a year). According to Korea Student Aid Foundation(KOSAF), students from the bottom 9 income groups can receive about on average 25% discounted tuition. However, students' responses to this change have been unreceptive.
 
Cheongju's BIS, which was introduced at the end of 2005, will be replaced. According to a survey on the old BIS in Cheongju City, 61% of citizens were satisfied with the old system last year, but other people wanted to improve the old system

Above all, the introduction of the reorganized scholarship is good for many students and parents who have suffered from rising tuitions, but many side effects may occur when the standards of selection depend on family incomes. Therefore, I think it is better that they should be awarded to students depending on family debts and their real property as well as on family incomes. Furthermore, solutions should be created in order for students to repay educational expenses after they become members of society as a means of increasing the responsibility of university students and also in order for the government to cover the National Scholarship from the national budget at the same time.
 
CBT surveyed CBNU people's opinions on FTA (Free Trade Agreement) and ISD (Investor State Distpute Settlement).
 
On November 22nd, the Grand National Party passed the ratification about the Korea- U.S. Free Trade Agreement (FTA) unilaterally. During the last several months, the political confrontation between the ruling party and the opposition party was deep. The major issue of the ratification was the investor-state dispute settlement (ISD) clause. The ISD is a regulation where if foreign investors suffer commercial losses from laws or policies of the countries which they invest into, then they can file a suit with an international arbitration organization against the countries according to international law.
 
Some college students work in their department office as Department Office Labor Scholarship Students and they don’t receive a scholarship or hourly wage.
