Korean Language & Culture Classes: 2016 Update image

Korean Language & Culture Classes: 2016 Update

Thanks for your patience as we've been working on our 2016 plan for the King Sejong Institute Washington, D.C.!

Demand for Korean language classes in the DC-MD-VA area remains strong, and continues to grow. As a result, our goal is to offer as many classes as possible this year. While we expect our summer and fall sessions to follow the usual schedule (outlined below), the KCC will undergo major renovations early this year, so our Spring session won't be stating as usual in early February, unfortunately.

However, rather than miss out on spring entirely, we are planning to offer a partial or mini-session of classes from early April through mid-May, after the renovations are complete. Most likely there wouldn't be as many classes as usual, and those we do offer would be shorter or condensed, but we'll do our best to balance the needs of new and continuing students. For now, please hang tight as we work on a schedule, which will be announced here with registration starting in early March. 

If you would like to receive class announcements as soon as possible, make sure to join our mailing list via the form below.

감사합니다!  Thank you! 

King Sejong Institute DC Overview

With a focus on practical language skills and cultural context, the King Sejong Institute Washington, D.C. at the embassy's Korean Cultural Center offers a range of classes that build skills in speaking, reading, listening, and writing Korean. All classes are of limited size and led by native Korean-speaking instructors with U.S. university teaching experience. Classes primarily teach language skills, while also introducing students to the traditional, modern, and social culture of Korea.
