2. About Korean Language Centre (KLC)
◦ Recognition by the Korean Ministry of Education
The Korean Language Centre (KLC) was established in 1999 as an affiliate to the school. It is recognized by the education ministries of both Korea and Singapore.
KLC is the first institution in Singapore established to offer Korean language lessons to foreigners and overseas Koreans interested in learning the Korean language and culture.
KLC's classes range from the Elementary to Master level. All aspects of the Korean language are covered – reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Our course materials are from Yonsei University’s Korean Language Institute, one of the top universities in Korea with an established Korean language course of their own.
For corporate clients, we provide customized learning materials to suit the exact needs of the organization.
◦ Qualified native educators
Our instructors are native Koreans who are fluent in English and have experience teaching foreigners as well as qualifications certified by the Korean Ministry of Education.
◦ Culture Events
Not only does KLC have a highly interesting academic curriculum, but we also provides opportunities to our students to experience the Korean culture with our Culture Events that are held at the end of every term.
Previous events have included learning how to make Korean dishes, learning how to play the Samulnori (Korean traditional drum performances), Taekwondo and other traditional Korean games.
