90,000 Korean students went abroad for language study in 2006

This article says that more than 90,000 students went abroad last year to study language in 2006. Number one destination was the US, China second, and third was Japan. Interesting numbers there, too.

There is an interesting feature on this site, you can listen to a machine-read version of the article. At the top of the article there are buttons you can push to hear a male or female version of the article. It was funny that abroad was spelled aboard three times, and was read that way by the machine. Of course it was, but the error was made more obvious and distracting because a human reader would probably have said the correct word even if it were mispelled, while the machine had no such decision making power.
