Seoul to begin free Korean language classThe Seoul Metropolitan Government has started offering free Korean-language classes in Gwanghui-dong, central Seoul, for Mongolians, Uzbeks and Russians. Classes will be Mondays and Wednesdays starting this week at the Gwanghui-dong Office. There are classes each week for beginners and intermediate-level learners and each class is comprised of 15 to 20 students.
The beginner class, which concentrates on conversation, runs from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays. The intermediate class, which focuses on grammar, will be taught from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays. The classes will be run by certified Korean-language teachers and Mongolian students fluent in Korean will be invited to share their experiences. Those interested in signing up should inquire at the Seoul Global Center (02-2075-4142) or (02-2075-4113).
Starting April 2, the Seoul Global Center in central Seoul will offer fairy tale narration classes for marriage immigrants and multiethnic children.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government believes the class will benefit both mothers and children of multiethnic families because it will help mothers with little knowledge of Korean fairy tales to better help their children with school work, while children will be able to improve their Korean language skills with their mothers.
