Learn How to Speak Korean in Brisbane

Get Started and Learn Korean

Australia and Korea have long-standing ties that go back to the 1920s, when the first Korean immigrant arrived in Sydney. Thereafter, this Asian community started to grow very quickly, particularly after WWI, when war prisoners were transported to Australia and who subsequently made the country their adopted home. Today, according to the 2013 census, 16% of Australian citizens speak a language other than English, and 13,000 people claim Korean as their native tongue. A large proportion have settled in the busy city of Brisbane, which cites more than 2,500 residents as being of Korean origin. So, if you are seeking to deepen your knowledge of this ancient culture, communicate with Korean speakers using their own language or even travel to Korea, start learning the language to take advantage of the exciting opportunities available. Contact us at Language Trainers to get started.

Why Study Korean in Brisbane

Learn Korean for Work: The Republic of Korea was Australia's third-largest market for goods-and-services exports  in 2017-18, totalling $23.7 billion, according to Statistics Australia. As well as coal, iron and aluminium, Korea remains an important buyer of Australian beef, sugar and wheat. So, if you are working in any of these fields, studying Korean may help you to advance your career by taking on new bilingual roles at home or abroad. Also, given the importance of Korea for Australia’s international business, more and more local companies are looking to expand into overseas markets and, for that, they need bilingual employees to aid with communication and rapport-building. Apply for an international job at companies like Red Hat, Placement 6 and Di Vine and stand out alongside the monolingual competition. Similarly, if you want to connect with businesspeople of Korean origin or would like to learn more about Korea as a potential market for your own business, you should get in touch with the Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Compton Road. Founded in 1943, this institution encourages positive business relations between Australia and Korea by organising talks and conferences. Why not go and impress the attendees with your Korean skills? You never know who you might meet!

Learn Korean for Culture: Did you know you can experience the ancient Korean culture without ever leaving the city of Brisbane? One must-see event is the Brisbane Korean Cultural Festival that takes place every September at King George Square. This incredible festival brings the sights, sounds and tastes of South Korea to the heart of the city with an all-day event that showcases the many iconic features of Korean culture, such as delicious food, performances and live music. Sing along to the lively K-pop with the pronunciation you acquire in your language course! You can also attend the workshops and events organised all year long by the Brisbane Korean Cultural Centre, an institution founded in the 1990s with the mission to create a culturally and socially inclusive environment for the Korean community of Brisbane. Every two weeks, for example, they hold Pungmul lessons, where you can learn about Korean rhythms, drumming, dancing and more!

Learn Korean for Social: Learning Korean in Brisbane will also come in handy when it comes to meeting new people and increase your social circle. For example, you can join the Brisbane Language and Cultural Asian Exchange, where you can find students of Chinese, Japanese and, of course, Korean origin to put your new skills into practice. Join them every Monday to have fun while making new friends and practise your reading and speaking skills. Most of the meetings take place in traditional restaurants, such as Maru on Elizabeth Street or Hanwoori on Mary Street. Order delicious bulgogi in Korean and impress both the restaurant personnel and your new friends!
