Korean in Dublin
Dublin is Ireland’s most populous and multicultural city and you can see this in the increase of people who speak languages other than English as their mother tongue. For example, more and more Korean speakers are choosing Dublin as their home. According to official statistics, there are about 2,500 Koreans living in Ireland (though many more Korean students come to study English in the summer), and 60% of them live in Dublin. Start studying Korean today and participate in K-pop karaoke, cultural festivals and language exchange groups. Contact us at Language Trainers to start learning the skills you will need to make the most of the Korean-language opportunities in and around Dublin!
Why Learn Korean in Dublin
For Social: You can use your Korean skills to make new friends around Dublin. For example, you can join the Dublin Korean Culture Meetup, a very popular group of native speakers and language learners who get together every week to practise the language and speak about their experiences living in Dublin. Every gathering has a main topic, such as the Seoul Olympics, the Korean Japan Football World Cup, food, culture, pop music, film, dramas, etc. Take advantage of this prospect to make new friends while communicating in Korean and having a great time! Another option is to join the Dublin Korean Culture Meetup, a group for anyone looking to socialise and enjoy a night out. Their gatherings usually take place at themed restaurants around the city, such as Kimchi on Parnell Street or Hailan Korean Restaurant on Dame Street. Imagine ordering bulgogi or pajeon in Korean and impressing your new friends!
For Culture: But besides the people, the Korean culture itself is also present around Dublin for you to experience. For instance, you can attend K-pop parties and events almost every month, where you can meet like-minded people and have the time of your life. Try out your singing skills at karaoke and impress the attendees with your flawless pronunciation! Also, cinema lovers should not miss the annual Korean Film Festival that takes place every June at the Light House Cinema. The festival features between 10 and 20 classic and contemporary movies in their original language (with English subtitles). The tickets are free of charge, so don’t miss out on this chance to improve your listening skills!
For Work and Studies: As economic ties are becoming stronger between Korea and Ireland, knowing Korean will prove to be an asset to advance in your career. Ireland exports to South Korea were valued at US$700.39 million during 2018, according to the United Nations COMTRADE database. Of these, 38% were pharmaceutical products and 20% electronic equipment. So, if you are working in one of those fields, learning Korean could prove valuable on your resume. Furthermore, with the advance of globalisation, more and more companies of Korean origin are establishing headquarters in the city, like SK Biotek and Samsung, while local businesses are looking to expand into overseas markets. Some examples are Activision Blizzard, Waterford or Zendesk. All of them are regularly looking for bilingual candidates to add to their teams, so enhance your CV by starting a Korean course with us at Language Trainers!
