Learn Korean with our Expert Tutors in Birmingham

Get Started and Learn Korean

Birmingham is the second-most populous city in the UK and it hosts many different communities. One of the most prominent ethnic groups living in the city is the Korean community, with more than 2,000 speakers, according to the 2011 census. This means that signing up for Korean lessons in Birmingham can help you boost your career opportunities, make new friends within the Korean community living in the city and understand the culture better than ever. You can even pursue higher education at the University of Birmingham by enrolling in the Asian Studies programme. Contact us today and we will start designing a tailor-made course that can be adapted to your schedule and requirements.

Why Study Korean in Birmingham

Learn Korean for Social: If you are looking to meet others with a passion for the Korean language and culture, you will find many instances for doing so around Birmingham. For instance, you can join the Birmingham Korean Meetup, a group that welcomes anyone with an interest in practising their Korean while making new friends. And if you are more into music, you will be happy to know that K-pop, with its catchy melodies and elaborately choreographed dance routines, has captured the hearts of many around Birmingham—and this shows in the number of karaoke bars you can find around the city. Some examples are Ming Moon and Wing Wah Karaoke on Wrottesley Street, or Karaoke Box Birmingham, on Regency Wharf. Sing along to these songs with the flawless pronunciation you will acquire with us at Language trainers while having a great time with your new friends.

Learn Korean for Culture: You will also be able to experience the ancient Korean culture around the city. For example, you can join the University of Birmingham Korean Society, a group of young people who aim to bring together those with an interest in Korea by means of organising cultural events and meetings. This group co-hosts East Asian themed club nights where you can sample delicious Korean dishes and feel as if you were in Korea without ever leaving Birmingham. After all, what better way is there to get to know the Korean culture than by tasting its food? For example, you can go to Topokki on Hurst Street also, a themed restaurant that serves hoeddeok (sweet syrupy pancakes) and bulgogi (marinated beef). The menu is written completely in Korean and we are sure you will be able to understand it without asking for help after taking a reasonable number of lessons with us!

Learn Korean for Work: Learning Korean will help you get a new job in Birmingham and even help you set up your own business overseas, if that’s your goal. South Korea is a world leader in electronics and steel, and most of its £5.2 billion exports to Britain in 2018 were cars and ships ( particularly to Birmingham), while the country imports crude oil, cars, ceramics and whiskey. So, if you are working in any of those fields, studying Korean will appeal to current or potential employers. Also, there are many local companies, such as Hankook Delcam and AECOM, which have thousands of clients from South Korea and are always looking for bilingual employees to help them do business with them.
