Language Courses
In the mornings, students take language courses designed to help improve their fluency in conversational Korean. Using an integrated teaching method, students practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills and learn useful vocabulary and grammar patterns. Through group projects and classroom activities, students acquire practical speaking experience while learning about Korean culture.

Cultural Activities
Students spend the afternoons taking interactive culture classes. In addition, students take outings into the city with their instructors or teaching assistants to complete assignments that help them practice their Korean language skills in a real world setting. Destinations include historical sites and other local points of interest. Students will also participate in culture-related group projects with Korean college students.
