Overview of the program

Experience Korea with the Korean Culture Camp Program offered by AYFN this autumn. Students and young people interested in a brief immersion program in Korean language and culture are welcome to apply for this program.

An excellent Korean learning cultural immersion program is being offered by The AYFN Academy in collaboration with a local group, with the aim of broadening foreign tourists’ awareness of The Republic of South Korea. To improve the Korean experience, the program incorporates daily activities, cultural outings, and Korean language instruction. International participants are welcome, regardless of their degree of Korean language proficiency.

This involves a program created especially to provide Korean language instruction to participants between the ages of 17 and 35, along with an opportunity for participants to learn about Korean culture.

Our goal is to instill in the next generation an appreciation for language acquisition while also encouraging them to be open-minded toward different cultures.
