  • Yes, Lexis in Seoul offers Bildungsurlaub and is recognised by many German states. Note that you have to reach a certain number of lessons for the course to be recognised. Usually the number is between 25-30 lessons.
    Lisa Schiwy, LanguageCourse.Net - Jun 16, 2023
  • We only work with one school in Seoul that offers English courses, but they are for IELTS preparation, which requires the student to already have a minimum level equivalent to B2.

    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - Apr 19, 2023
  • Unfortunately, it is not possible to redeem education vouchers for North Rhine-Westphalia via our website. However, we do offer educational leave for other federal states and are happy to help with any questions.
    Lisa Schiwy, LanguageCourse.Net - Mar 17, 2023
  • Please note that you are planning a trip for the summer, when the school is usually fully booked. If you decide to change cities in March, it is certainly possible, but it will all depend on availability. But it's best, of course, to double-check with the school, especially if you plan to book not only the course but also the accommodation.
    Maksym Sterpul, LanguageCourse.Net - Nov 17, 2022
  • Easy Korean Academy in Seoul has the highest age average of any school in Korea, making it suitable for older students.

FAQ about schools in South Korea

  • Beginner courses for people who do not understand English are generally taught in the target language. Lessons, explanations and instructions are given in Korean. This enables learners to understand the content without needing to master English.

    To facilitate understanding, teachers can use visual aids, gestures and real-life examples to explain concepts. This overcomes language barriers and makes the content more accessible. The teachers on these courses are likely to be trained to work with learners who are not fluent in English. They understand the difficulties and are patient and supportive in helping learners understand the concepts.

  • TOPIK takes place six times a year in South Korea, and you need to register online on the official TOPIK website. All the registration instructions can be found on the site.

  • This depends on the airline you want to travel with. Some offer assistance for minor travelling alone, some don't. It's better to check this information on their webpage.
    Madly Simba, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Jun 21, 2023
  • We cooperate with various schools and offer various types of courses accessible from the age of 16, or possibly even a Junior Programme as many schools do not offer accommodation or are private residences / flats only accessible from the age of 18.
    No school offers courses / programmes that include flights, these must be booked by the student, preferably after confirmation of course and/or accommodation availability.
    Antonio Zoppo, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Jan 20, 2023
  • We do not book flights, but we are happy to help you book transfer from the airport to your accommodation if you have booked accommodation with the school.
    Louise Granath, Area Manager from LanguageCourse.Net - Jun 03, 2022
  • Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee visas because we are a private institution. Korean Embassy doesn't issue student visas for our students. For that reason, it would be better to ask directly the Korean Embassy and contact a university in order to apply for a student visa.

    Ahreum Cho, School representative from Easy Korean Academy - Aug 27, 2021
  • You can book as many weeks as you wish depending on your current level and your goals. The minimum duration of language courses in South Korea is 1 week.
