Seoul - Korea
is the capital and largest city of South Korea. With a population of over 10 million, it is one of the world's largest cities. . The city then became the capital of Korea during the Joseon Dynasty and the Korean Empire. The Seoul National Capital Area includes four UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Changdeokgung, Hwaseong Fortress, Jongmyo Shrine and the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty. Seoul has one of the world's most technologically advanced infrastructures and is often called the "Tech capital of the world"
The program is designed to combine grammar with conversation, reading and writing practice. Furthermore, the school's books and teaching material will introduce students to the history, geography and culture.
The teaching methodology is fun, self-paced and ideally requires four to six weeks for students to develop basic communication skills. If the student has studied Korean before he/she will start with an examination (written and oral) to evaluate at which level to commence study.
Students are assessed and receive instruction at their appropriate level. Depending on the student's ability they will spend class time in any of the following activities:
Grammar Pronunciation and discussion Reading and writing skills Listening and comprehension Cultural awareness
Students often combine classes in the study city with independent weekend field trips to small towns where the target language is primarily spoken. The local school staff is happy to provide students with information to facilitate these visits.
One and One and small group classes enable you to study Korean language more intensively and efficiently:
- Your class can begin at any point in the year. - You can plan your study according to your situation, such as the time you have available for language study. - We select the appropriate textbook and teaching material according to students' needs.

The school offers student classes which suit the students' own individual characteristics, considering students' reasons for Korean language study, language learning experience, method of study, situation and native language."
I most enjoyed close contact with a foreign culture as well as meeting new people from all cultures through my classes.
