Korean in Adelaide
The Korean population in Adelaide has grown significantly over the years, from 300 speakers in 1986 to almost 1,500 today, according to the national census. Most of these Korean speakers come from South Korea, the first of whom began arriving in South Australia in the early 1970s due to suffering economic problems in their home country. Then, from 1986 to 1991, there was a substantial increase in Korean settlers arriving in Australia due to political instability. Most of these new arrivals took advantage of the Skilled and Business Migration Program, which allowed them to establish their own companies at low cost. Since then, many Korean people have migrated to South Australia as ‘long-term arrivals’ (i.e. foreigners remaining in Australia for twelve months or longer). So, if you would like to communicate with this ethnic group and enjoy their cultural events in a deeper way, start learning Korean today!

Why Learn Korean in Adelaide
Learn Korean for Work: The Republic of Korea is Australia’s third-largest export market in the fields of energy, resources and agriculture, and Australia’s fourth-largest two-way trading partner. The level of investment between Australia and Korea has grown significantly over the past decade, from just AUD$600 million in 2003 to AUD$49 billion in 2018. This means that Korean has become a significant skillset for Adelaide-based businesses involved in this trade, and learning the language will help you advance your career. For example, if you work in the healthcare field, Korean pharmaceutical companies, such as Yuhan Co, Ltd., have made major investments in South Australia and Adelaide. So, make sure you sign up for a Korean course and take advantage of the professional opportunities these companies have to offer to bilingual speakers, including larger salaries and opportunities overseas.
Learn Korean for Culture: You will also find many opportunities to explore the ancient Korean culture around Adelaide. For instance, as of 2019, the City of Burnside Association presents Korean Night each year, an evening of music and celebration of the Korean heritage in Adelaide. Watch amazing performances from special guests, such as the Freak Elites Korean Dance Crew, presenting the best of KPop. Sing along to the songs with the flawless pronunciation you acquire in your language course. Also, you will find traditional food and drinks for purchase all night long, like Korean barbecue and bulgogi. And after taking a reasonable amount of lessons with us, why not read the Korean Magazine online? It features local events, news and other relevant information for the Korean community, written completely in their native language. Put your reading skills to use while learning more about the Korean culture in Adelaide!
Learn Korean for Social: Those looking to connect with like-minded people around Adelaide by using their Korean skills will find many opportunities for doing so in the city. For example, you can join the celebrations of the Korean New Year, commonly known as Seollal, the first day of the lunar calendar. This can fall anytime between the end of January and the end of February. Attend this wonderful event and enjoy Korean music, dance, martial arts, food and market stalls, all while meeting new friends with a similar passion for the Korean culture! Another highlight of the Korean community where you can meet new people is Chu Suk (the Korean Thanksgiving Day). Chu Suk is held every September and is the day when Korean South Australians remember their lives in their home country and celebrate their heritage with traditional dancing, games and food. Impress the attendees with your Korean skills and make new friends while having a great time.
