Korean in Cambridge

The city might be best known for its 800-year-old university, but there is more to Cambridge than a world-class higher education institution. This small but beautiful and multicultural city in the east of England has become a global technology hub whose growth shows no signs of slowing. These professional opportunities and the prestigious university attract immigrants from all over the world, and this shows in the number of foreign languages you can hear when strolling around the city. One of these languages is Korean which, according to the 2010 census, has more than 1,500 speakers in Cambridge. This means that learning Korean in the city can become an asset in case you are looking for a new job or would like to communicate with this ethnic group on a more intimate level. Just reach out to us at Language Trainers and we will prepare a tailor-made course that suits your learning goals and helps you become fluent in this Asian language in a short time.

Stay safe at home and take an online course with us at Language Trainers. Our professional, native teachers will prepare lessons for you to acquire a new skill online while having fun. Contact us

Why Study Korean in Cambridge

For Social: If you are looking to make new friends in Cambridge with similar interests, you should join a language exchange group, like Cambridge International Friends Meetup. This group was established with the objective of enabling its members to practise foreign tongues, like Korean, while having some fun and socialising with other learners or native speakers of the language. The founders organise a weekly meeting where you will surely find Korean students with whom you can put your new language skills into play. And if all that conversation leaves you hungry, why not accompany your new friends to one of the many themed restaurants that serve Korean food in the city? Some examples are Little Seoul on Regent Street or Bibimap House on Mill Road. Imagine ordering delicious dishes like bulgogi or gen hangjungsal using your new Korean skills!

For Culture: You will also find plenty of opportunities to experience the ancient Korean culture around Cambridge. For example, you can take part in some of the many events organised by the Cambridge University Korean Society. This is a club whose members are both Korean and non-Korean students and who promote the Korean culture to those of non-Korean origin. Every month, they host a dinner party where attendees can enjoy delicious Korean-style BBQ while listening to K-pop music and having a good time. Speaking of Korean pop music, you should not miss the monthly K-pop nights organised by the same institution. You can listen to all your favourite hits by bands like BTS and EXO, and sing along to karaoke. Don’t be shy and show off your flawless pronunciation while singing the lively tunes!

For Studies:  If you would like to pursue higher education in Korean, you will be happy to know you can do so at Cambridge University. Even though the university does not offer an undergraduate course or master’s programme that specialises in Korean Studies, topics relating to Korean history, politics and international relations are offered in a number of courses across the Japanese Studies course. Similarly, if you enrol in the East Asian Studies BA programme, you will study the languages and cultures of regions that span from Japan to Morocco, including Korea. One of the best things about this course is that you will spend your third year abroad, so you can visit South Korea for yourself! Naturally, an advanced knowledge of Korean will come in handy if you do travel abroad, so you should start learning the language as soon as possible. Contact us today and we will start designing a course that suits your skills and schedule, so you achieve fluency in a short time!
