Learn Korean in Seoul, South Korea

Crossed by the Han River, which separates the city into two distinct parts, the capital of South Korea has been the political, economic, cultural and social centre of the country for 600 years. North of the river, the city is steeped in history and culture while beyond the southern banks, modern buildings dominate the cityscape.


The capital is home to 10 million people with an urban centre extending until Incheon, making it the world’s third largest metropolis. From the top of the N Seoul Tower, the panorama is spectacular. With its skyscrapers overlooking Buddhist temples, Seoul combines evocations of the past and a dynamic present with great style. An attractive cultural offer, lively nightlife, many sports and four seasons to enjoy... Seoul offers an intriguing but harmonious mix. A superb example of Korean traditional architecture, the Changdeokung Palace is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The outer walls and museums of the Gyeongbokgung Palace are a must-see for visitors. The many tea venues and Insadong shops represent an excellent opportunity to mix with the warm and easy-going locals, always eager to show you around their hometown.

Seoul has been growing in popularity for decades and has played host to many international events in recent years: the Asian games in 1986, the Olympic games in 1988 and opening game of the FIFA World Cup (Korea vs Japan) in 2002. A language study trip to Seoul is a fascinating way to discover the Far East, from a vantage point at the crossings of China and Japan.
