I’ve been living in Korea for about a month now. I’m a teacher in a public school in Seoul. I’ve heard of some teachers that have been able to take free Korean classes. I am really interested in learning Korean while I am here. I feel it would make my experience here that much better. Do you know of any classes that are offered to teachers living in Seoul?
The Korean never had to take any classes to learn Korean, so he is not a good person to ask. But Chris B. from Chris in South Korea came to rescue:
Good question - while I haven't had the time to take advantage of them, a few websites from this link may be of help: http://www.korea4expats.com/article-learning-korean.html
Also of note: the Seoul Global Center offers free Korean classes, though the next ones don't start until February. Some details:
Thanks Chris!
