Korean at SOAS Language Centre

What do you know about Korea? Taekwondo, Hangul, LCD screens, kimchi, horror movies, or nice people?

Korea [ 한국 ], once known as ‘Land of the Morning Calm’ has now become ‘Dynamic Korea’ representing the lively energy of its people and culture.

If you want to learn more about Korea, you can start by learning the language.

Korean is the official language spoken by North and South Koreans. There are approximately 78 million Korean speakers around the world. The  language has its own writing system called ‘Hangul’ [ 한글 ] created in 1443 by King Sejong with a group of scholars.

SOAS Language Centre provides language tuition in Korean at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, and can cater for the needs of commerce, industry, government, individuals and public organisations. Study with us at SOAS in central London and enjoy the range of activities available in the Language Centre and at SOAS.
