I am subscribing to KGSP-U later this year, so I'm working on my study plans right now. Would you mind giving your opinion?

KGSP Study Plan A (Foreign Languages)
Study plans to improve foreign languages(Korean, English, etc) required for taking a bachelor's degree course
BEFOREand AFTER you come to Korea.
Since I was a child I have always been a fast-learner, from technology areas all the way to creative areas. I remember being very curious about every single detail of a video-game, and interested on every curious fact behind a movie production. This constant will to learn more has brought many ambitions into my character, such as learning new cultures and languages. I started learning English by myself without even being aware of it, all happened while I explored throughout the internet and got interested in foreign books and video-games. By the age of 12, I entered an English course with classes every week from 2013 to 2016. Aside from taken these classes since young, I will continue to seek formal, academic training in English.
Later on, in my 2nd year of High School, I went to study abroad in Canada, where I stayed in Vernon/BC for a whole semester. The experience that changed my life, it was when I got in touch with Korean people for the first time. The friendships made were enough for me to start learning Korean on my own. However, it is hard to find good content on-line and there are no courses where I live. Since then, I've spend my time on-line on Korean practice chat-rooms in order to exchange language knowledge between Korean and English. Although I am still a beginner, I will keep evolving more and more as long as I study.
Truly, my main focus is to develop a high-understanding of the Korean language by the end of KGSP first year. Since the course is free-provided to the scholars, I will make sure to take the highest exploitation of it. I will be prioritizing the language studies to anything else, so I can be able to get a high TOPIK classification by the end of the year. And since I managed to teach myself for a few years, I believe I can genuinely dominate the language with the help of teachers and the immersion experience. I'll make use of every opportunity that will come.
Furthermore, these improvements can also allow me to accomplish a series of achievements not only in Korea but also in Brazil, as the Hallyu wave grows by each day, the relation between the two countries can get closer. Only a few 1,502 Brazilians live in South Korea, compared to the 50,000 Koreans in Brazil, it is a small number. I believe that the relationship between both countries can get better as many people study the language, opening a vast spectrum of opportunities in multi and national companies.
By practicing Korean and English daily, I will be able to frame myself a better person, since the multilingualism has become highly beneficial, whether is from the social aspect, to financial. Being able to create bonds with people from all around the world is considered one of the finest experiences a human-being can have, and I am sure I'll give the best of me to be able to follow my dream.
