Korean language classes open for SL public


An opportunity to learn the Korean language eventually opened for the Sri Lankan public at the Korea Corner in the Colombo Public Library, Colombo 7.

Any Sri Lankan national can apply for this language course as there will be no particular restrictions on age or academic levels, even free of charge.

This is a part of promoting the Korea Corner as discussed between the Korean Embassy and the Colombo Public Library.

This plan had also been mentioned during the first anniversary for the Korea Corner on January 27, 2015.

In Sri Lanka, genuine interest in Korea and the Korean culture, also known as Hallyu, has been increasing in the recent years, however, opportunities to learn the Korean language in Colombo were limited, ever since the Sejong Institute’s closure in the year 2013.

The classes will be run by KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency), every Saturday from 9 to 12 at the Korea Corner, from April 25, 2015.

In addition, applications will be open for three weeks at the Colombo Public Library.

The learning material will be a Korean language textbook published and also donated by the Korea Embassy on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Korea Corner.

On the first day of classes, thirty five people had attended, which was more than the anticipated number of people.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea plans to open additional classes according to the demand of the applicants through consultations with KOICA and the Colombo Public Library

Writer’s comments on the Class

I would like to say this is far morr better than what I expected as this is the second time I’m attending a Korean Language class. The teacher (Ms Bae , Bae Sonsaengnim) really friendly and gives equal attention to everyone. She explains everything in Sinhala and do many group activities as well as lessons related to the Korean culture.

I recommend you to join this class and improve your knowledge.
