Jag älskade Seoul så fort jag lämnade Incheon flygplats. Skolan var hur bra som helst och min värdfamilj var underbar! Lexis Korea är hur bra som helst i min åsikt!! Jag älskar min värdfamilj! Jag hade inte kunnat fått en bättre familj! Var bara ute på en 'utflykt'. Hade gått på fler om jag var där en längre period men jag ville leta runt på min egen hand då jag hade bara 2 veckor på mig. Annars var det väldigt bra! Åk till Korea, det var det bästa som jag har gjort!

« Det har jag. Jag kunde redan de Koreanska bokstäverna innan jag åkte, men på bara två veckor så blev jag mycket mer säker när jag skulle bara prata Koreanska tex. när jag skulle beställa mat osv. »

« Allt var bra! Jag älskade mina lärare som jag hade under den korta perioden! De som satt i receptionen var väldigt trevliga och hjälpe oss med allt! »

Südkorea hat mir sehr gefallen!! Die Schule, die ich besucht habe, fand ich hervorragend. Die Lehrer waren sehr gut im unterrichten und auch immer hilfsbereit. Meine Gastfamilie hat mir meinen Aufenthalt leichter gemacht und mir hat die Wohnung und die Familie sehr gefallen. Gerne würde ich wieder über ESL einen solchen Sprachaufenthalt buchen. Das Land an sich ist wunderschön und Seoul ist super geeignet für junge Studenten! Die Lehrer haben mich sehr gefördert und gingen immer auf jeden Schüler ein. Ich hatte mit verschiedenen Lehrern zu tun und ich war nie enttäuscht. Die Lehrer haben immer versucht uns alles genau und klar zu erklären ohne Englisch zu verwenden. Dies hat mich sehr gefördert! Zusätzlich war meine Klasse super, da es kein "falsch" gegeben hat, jedoch habe ich von Anderen gehört, dass es in anderen Klassen nicht gleich war. Die Schule hat uns immer Hilfe angeboten, was ich sehr hilfreich fand. (auch meine Kollegen haben dies sehr geschätzt.) Und die Ausflüge/Freizeitangeboten haben sie sehr der Kultur angepasst, welches ich eine super Idee fand.

« Definitiv! Da ich die Sprachen jeden Tag um mich hatte, haben sich meine koreanisch Kenntnisse in nur drei Wochen schnell verbessert. Dazu muss man aber auch erwähnen, dass ich sehr viel auch nach der Schule noch gelernt habe und jede Chance nutzte um mein Koreanisch anzuwenden. »
School highlights
« Die Lehrer waren super im Unterrichten und hilfsbereit. Jede Woche haben wir ein kleines Büchlein mit den Themen für diese Woche erhalten. Zusätzlich fand ich richtig gut, dass nur Koreanisch gesprochen wurde und nicht so viel English. Mir hat dies sehr viel gebracht! »

Den Sprachaufenthalt würde ich jeder Zeit wieder empfehlen! Seoul ist eine tolle und sehr spannende Stadt! Sehr tolle Lehrer und der Unterricht war dadurch, dass man gezwungen war Koreanisch zu sprechen und durch die kleinen Gruppen, sehr effektiv. Nach dem Unterricht gab es viele Möglichkeiten mit Mitschülern etwas zu unternehmen, da alle sehr offen waren.

« Ich habe auf jeden Fall größere Fortschritte erzielt als im Selbststudium und Unikurs (fand 1mal pro Woche statt) und kann nun mit Tandempartnern problemlos auf Koreanisch schreiben, da der Grundstein solide gelegt wurde. »
School highlights
« Super Lage in Gangnam - man konnte sich ganz leicht Mittagessen und Kaffee holen und mit Mitschülern shoppen oder zum Karaoke gehen. Die Lehrer waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Man hat gemerkt, dass es ihnen wichtig war, dass jeder im Kurs dran kommt und aktiv Koreanisch spricht. Auch haben sie uns ab und zu tolle Tipps gegeben, wo wir in Seoul hingehen können und eine war auch mit uns beim Karaoke :) Auch die Einstufung in das richtige Kurslevel war gut! »
Top tips
« Die Abholung bei Rückfahrt mit der Schule abklären, um sicher zu gehen, dass es organisiert wurde und der Fahrer zur richtigen Zeit ankommt. Man sollte sich auch rechtzeitig über die Aktivitäten informieren. »

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.

Lexis, Seoul
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.

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.
