Known as “the land of the morning calm,” Korea’s culture gives you thousand year-old traditions, poems, proverbs, and historical writings. Learning the Korean language will allow you to expand your cultural horizons, how you think about life, and how you interact with native speakers of Korean and people from other Asian cultures. The Korean language offers unique Buddhist-based concepts as well. Learning Korean gives you a rich understanding of one of the most dynamic countries in the world.
