    Hone your Korean skills in the buzzing metropolis of Seoul. 

    Take your Korean to the next level with four weeks of language immersion in Seoul. You'll master Hangul, one of the world's youngest alphabets, and sharpen your conversation skills as you get to know South Korea’s colorful heritage. After language class, connect with locals in traditional markets, Buddhist temples, and themed cafés. Explore iconic neighborhoods like Hongdae, where aspiring performers show off their talents, and Myeongdong, Seoul's vibrant shopping district. 

    The quality time you'll have with your host family will open your eyes to a new way of living—prepare traditional meals, savor Korean dishes, and enjoy communal dining. On weekends, you'll embark on exciting excursions to places like scenic Nami Island and historic Jeonju, home to Korea’s largest hanok (traditional wooden homes) village. Your experience in Seoul will not only allow you to improve your Korean but provide you with the unique opportunity to live like a local and make lifelong chingu (friends)!
