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.

Es una experiencia que habría que tener al menos una vez en la vida, se aprende mucho sobre el idioma y sobre la vida cotidiana del país. Seúl me encantó, al igual que la gente y la escuela, y ojalá pueda repetirlo (en Seúl u otro sitio). He aprendido mucho en solo 2 semanas, la profesora era muy agradable y paciente, y explicaba muy bien. Me hubiese gustado poder quedarme más tiempo. Se conoce gente de todas partes, es una experiencia muy interesante.

Uno dei viaggi più indimenticabili della mia vita.Grazie a questa esperienza ho capito che la Corea del Sud, specialmente Seoul, è il mio posto nel mondo! Credo che, anche se sono stata lì per poche settimane, questo corso intensivo di Coreano sia stato molto utile per migliorare le mie abilità della lingua.I professori e le professoresse che ho avuto sono state davvero eccezionali, gentili e molto disponibili, hanno saputo mescolare il gioco allo studio e per questo hanno reso le lezioni ancora più interessanti, coinvolgenti e divertenti (non li dimenticherò mai)

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.

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.

Residence (from 18 years)
Your convenience is guaranteed at this residence located right next to the language school! In your modern, en suite room, you’ll find a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave and kettle, a desk and chair, a TV, balcony, free Wi-Fi and even a washing machine. Choose from a single or twin room (quads also available, and this option as well as the twin may be booked by a single student who will be matched with other students). The building includes a gym and sauna, and with Gangnam Station around the corner, all of Seoul is right at your fingertips!

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.
