Korean Language and Culture Program (Scholarship scheme)

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Experience Korea with the AYFN’s Korea Experience Program. This program is open to students and learners desiring a short-term immersion program in Korean language and Korean culture. With the goal of increasing foreign students’ understanding of The Republic of South Korea, The AYFN Exchange Academy and Seongbuk Global Cultural Village are offering an invaluable Korean learning cultural immersion program. The program combines Korean language training with daily activities and cultural excursions to enhance the Korean experience. This entails a program which is specifically designed to offer Korean classes for students/youth from ages 14-25 as well as a chance for these students to gain a cultural understanding of Korea. This will be done through both visiting famous Seoul attractions and partaking in typical cultural activities such as experiencing Korean tradition (wear handbook), making your own Korean dumplings or learning about traditional Korean Calligraphy. Our aim is to inspire the students to open their minds to other cultures and recognize the importance of language learning at the same time. We want the students to end their trip by leaving with a better knowledge of Korea and a firm basis of the Korea language. During the program, students will take public transport (Bus, Metro, subway train) to deepen understand about Korean way of life and be like a local.
