Adapting to Korean culture can be disorienting. There are different customs, social mores, and, of course, a new language to learn. Enter the PCL Korean Class, which can help you learn about Korea's People, Culture, and Language (hence, "PCL"). Did we mention that the class is FREE? That's because it is offered as a ministry of Presbyterian Church of the Lord (yes, also "PCL"). Find out more about the PCL English Ministry. No, you do not need to join the church to take the class. EVERYONE is welcomed!
We offer multiple levels of language instruction, from absolute beginner to advanced speaker. Classes meet on Saturday from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm in Jamsil-dong, Seoul.
If you are interested in joining, please follow these instructions: 1) sign up for this meetup; 2) send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name and tell us your level of experience with the language.
It is best to sign up before the semester begins. We can't guarantee admission once a semester has started. However, if there is room and it is not too late, you will receive an email inviting you to come to the class. If the class is full or the semester too far along, look for an announcement on our page regarding registration for the next semester (we operate on a trimester schedule).
On top of the regular class, we have activities designed to improve your listening skills and expose you to different aspects of Korean culture, such as our monthly Hallyuwood movie, which showcases Korean films with English subtitles. In addition, we will have occasional outings to cultural events.
We look forward to seeing you soon! 안녕히 계세요!
“ Considering most of us taking the classes are teachers, I would have to say the way they're organized and the way they teach is amazing! It's not just a mess-around get-together at a cafe, rather actual classes in classrooms with great teachers. I'm very impressed and will continue to attend because this class is great. They use the Yonsei University textbooks, which are some of the best. A+! ” — Nicholas Park on Sep 25, 2011.
