KCCUK – Learn Korean within a Cinematic Context

Application period extended to 15th September @ 6pm

Learn Korean within a Cinematic Context!

King Sejong Institute

This September sees the start of a new kind of language course at the Korean Cultural Centre UK. After years of the very successful and always packed Sejong language classes, the KCCUK is now introducing a fun and different way to learn the Korean language, through Cinema Context. We love the KCCUK for many things, the two main things being the language course (how KCM met) and the Korean film nights, so it is really cool to see them combine these two aspects to create a very exciting new course.

But before we all get super excited, to qualify for this course you must be either a Sejong Institute Graduate or have a prior knowledge of the Korean language (see below for more details). Also the course dates are 18 September – 20 November 2014, and classes are every Thursday from 4:30pm to 6:20pm which will be a problem for all those who work 9-5, i.e. Us, so we’re a bit disappointed we won’t be able to join but it’ll no doubt be a very interesting way to further your Korean language skills! And like all the other courses at the KCCUK, this course is also FREE!

If you’ve always wanted to develop your Korean and go that extra mile but have never been the studying type then this fun new course should help! This course will utilise Korean films to help you further your Korean. It will cover a total of 3 Korean films over 10 weeks; 3 weeks to each film. This is a newly designed course which will give you a refreshingly new approach to learning Korean.

How could would it be to get to learn the Busan accent!
