    grammar help

    English teachers, help!

    Are the ff. sentences correct? If not, pls explain.

    1. She is a freshman university student majoring in Management.
    (is the preposition "in" necessary in this sentence? or should it be deleted?)

    2. Kimchi is one of Koreans' favorite foods.

    Thanks!

    Kimchi is one of Korea's favorite foods.

    "Foods" is quite normal here.
