Extra Korean Language Class
All international students can take Basic Korean language courses for 35,000 KRW, which includes the cost of materials. Extra Korean Language Class will be held on Tuesday and Thursday from 4 pm to 5:30 pm. Extra Korean Language Class is recommended for students who do not take regular Korean course for credit, since it deals with very basic-survival level Korean.
