Our Korean language school occupies the 11th floor of a newly built tower of glass and steel in the centre of Seoul. 10 spacious and air-conditioned classrooms, a multimedia room, kitchen and student lounge make this a modern and comfortable environment for learning Korean. The location is hard to beat, with the famous Gangnam district on your doorstep. A wealth of cafés, restaurants, bars and shops define this hip area of the South Korean capital, which really gets going after sunset.

ESL senza dubbio è una agenzia molto professionale, tutto questo si può notare dalla velocità con la quale tutte le operazioni sono state svolte.Il miglior biglietto da visita dell'agenzia stessa sono le persone che lavorano al suo interno, tutti molto professionali e disposti a seguire le tue richieste.Sono stato a Seoul per un mese e grazie a ESL ho avuto una delle più belle esperienze della mia vita. Lexis Korea è una scuola grandiosa.L'ubicazione della scuola è meravigliosa in quanto vicinissima all'uscita della metro; altro punto a favore è sicuramente la città stessa - Gangnam - si trova sempre qualcosa da fare a qualsiasi ora e non ci si annoia mai.Il sistema scolastico è imbattibile in quanto si parla esclusivamente in Coreano e seguire la lezione diventa mano a mano più facile di giorno in giorno.In un solo mese il mio livello di coreano è aumentato esponenzialmente per questo devo ringraziare in particolare l'insistenza dei professori su determinati argomenti.La scuola propone giornalmente diverse attività per poter conoscere anche gli altri studenti all'interno della scuola ed è grazie a queste che ho conosciuto quasi tutti. Ogni settimana le lezioni erano focalizzate su uno specifico argomento che veniva mantenuto fino alla settimana successiva.Durante la settimana si svolgono dei mini-test per misurare il livello di comprensione generale della classe e il lunedì successivo si effettua un test per poter passare da un livello all'altro.I professori sono tutti molto gentili e disponibili, il rapporto non è studente-professore ma più umano-umano.La lezione non risulta mai essere troppo pesante o noiosa. Grazie ESL per questa bellissima esperienza, speriamo che in futuro io possa usufruire nuovamente del vostro servizio.

« Sicuramente viaggiare dall'altra parte del mondo è già un progresso per sé stessi, quindi devo dire di sentirmi molto più sicuro ed indipendente rispetto a prima.Il mio livello di coreano è migliorato esponenzialmente in quanto essere immersi nell'ambiente è la cosa che mi ha aiutato maggiormente.Le lezioni scolastiche si sono rivelate tutte molto utili e immediatamente applicabili nel contesto reale. »
Top tips
« Procurarsi una guida prima del viaggio perché faciliterà di molto gli spostamenti e le scelte su che cosa vedere.Non perdetevi assolutamente il Gyeongbokgung, se arrivate ad un orario decente potete anche vedere il cambio della guardia.Questa attrazione turistica, come tutte le altre, è facilmente raggiungibile tramite metropolitana. »

« Oui, être plongé dans la langue et la culture m'a beaucoup aidé et motivé à me lancer pour parler la langue. Trois semaines ce n'était pas énorme et je faisais parfois l'entorse sur les devoirs puisque le séjour avait un but de voyage aussi alors les progrès ne sont pas foudroyants mais ils sont là, j'ai de bonnes bases. »

Lexis, Seoul
Duration: 12 weeks

With my best friend Alysson, I arrived in South Korea in early February 2014. On the next day, we went to Lexis Korea, a language school that teaches Korean to students from so many different countries that it is hard to imagine. I met wonderful people there, whom I could refer to when I had doubts. The classes are understandable and fun, and time passes by so quickly. I was recommended this Korean language school by ESL.

The teachers are friendly and amiable, especially teacher 상우 who accompanied us throughout the course and helped us understand her culture better.
In class, we had friends from various countries, including France, Sweden, Pakistan, Japan, among others.

Duration: 2 weeks

I took a language course in South Korea with ESL. I travelled to Seoul with the conviction that learning Korean would add significant value to my résumé. Making the most of my Korean classes at Lexis Seoul, I rapidly fitted into the urban lifestyle of this welcoming metropolis, even playing in the local college football team. I stayed in a residence located 5 minutes’ walk to the language school and I felt that foreigners, especially when they are interested in getting to know the local people and lifestyle, are very popular there.

Duration: 8 weeks

I’ve had a great time doing an intensive Korean course. Our whole class came as total beginners and we were all reading,writing and speaking in the first week. This course really helped me get more out of my trip in Korea. The staff were really helpful and assisted me a lot getting set up in Seoul, arranging my accommodation and Korean phone number. A big thank you to the friendly staff, teachers and fellow students, as well as a really effective course. I never thought I could learn Korean basics so quickly.

Host family
During your stay in Seoul, you will be welcomed into a South Korean family’s home, staying in a single bedroom and sharing the communal areas with your hosts. This is a unique opportunity to experience local life and practise Korean in daily situations. You will be immersed in their culture and have the chance to taste delicious Korean specialties. Some families live in the centre of Seoul, while others live in nearby districts close to the centre. The public transport network is excellent but it may take you up to an hour to reach the school.

Mini Studio (from 18 years)
Our partner school offers a budget-friendly single room accommodation option, ideal if you want more independence. Located just a metro stop from the school building (or 15 minutes’ walk), in an area with many shops, restaurants and cafés, you will live in a small studio (in line with local standards) equipped to a high standard, with a bed, storage space, a refrigerator, air conditioning, a TV and free wired internet. You will have your own bathroom and share the communal kitchen, laundry room and outdoor dining area with the other international students. The building is entirely secure.

Your free time in Seoul is your chance to practise what you learn in class, while discovering a bustling metropolis. The school organises evenings such as K-pop concerts and legendary karaoke nights: an authentic slice of Korean culture. During the week, visits to museums, historical monuments and traditional areas of the city are offered, including the must-see Palace of Gyeongbokgung. The school will also take you shopping to Myeong-dong, a city within the city, with shops as far as the eye can see. Sign up for the Korean food day and pamper your taste buds with an impressive range of flavours. The world’s largest indoor amusement park, Lotte World, is found here; or if you prefer restful Buddhist temples, you will find hundreds of them – true havens of peace, contrasting with the hustle and bustle of the city.
