Ask a Korean! Wiki: Korean Schools Around Dallas?

Dear Korean,

We are hoping to enroll our daughter in Korean classes when she is old enough and take classes ourselves. We are planning to move to the Dallas area in 2012. I have been able to find plenty of Korean markets, restaurants and businesses, but I can't seem to find Saturday or Sunday Korean language classes for children and adults in the area. Do you know where I should look?

Barbara K.

The Korean has never stepped foot in the great state of Texas, unfortunately. Readers, any ideas?

Got a question or a comment for the Korean? Email away at askakorean@gmail.com.

  1. TK, there's an ROK consulate-general in Houston. They usually keep a list of language schools. They should be able go help Barbara, as Dalkas would be their neck of the woods . They're also on the Web:

  3. I recommend contacting a few of the Korean churches in/around "Big D".

    Another source could be the community colleges.

  4. I'm from the Dallas area. Here are a couple I found in the local Korean phone book:

    Plano-Dallas Korean School
    469-230-8931
    Dallas Korean School
    214-498-7970
    Moo Dong Hwa Korean School
    817-422-2483
    Fort Worth Korean School
    817-905-4037

    I can't vouch for any of these. Also some warning. The Korean community in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is unique as it is not concentrated in one particular area. There is a smallish Korea-Town on Harry Hines Boulevard, but Koreans tend not to live there. Instead, they are found dispersed all over the place. I don't know exactly where any of the schools I noted are, but they are inside a 100 mile radius. Understand, you are likely going to have to drive your kids to and from these schools.

    You may reach me at bladerunner11267@yahoo.com if you need more contact numbers or more Dallas area info.

  5. Maybe Barbara should ask people at those Korean markets, restaurants, businesses, etc.

    Where I live, Korean-owned businesses usually have flyers or ads (including those Korean churches and schools) posted somewhere near the entrance.

  6. Thank you for all of your comments. We just bought a home in a small town north of Dallas (Denton, TX). I think we will be able to find what we need in the Carrollton and Plano areas. The H-Mart in Carrollton is fantastic by the way! There are many Korean churches in the area and I have plenty of resources for finding language lessons for the little one. We plan to get her started with classes soon. I will send an update after she is enrolled and beginning lessons.
