Korean in Canberra
Canberra is a city that has historically received a lot of immigrants. According to the 2011 census, 24% of Canberra’s residents have been born overseas. Today, the largest ethnic group living in the city is of Asian origin and a high proportion of the population is Korean. More than 2,500 people speak this language at home in Canberra and most of them are monolingual speakers. So, if you would like to be able to communicate with this community, explore the different Korean-based professional opportunities Canberra has to offer and make new friends with a similar passion for the language as you, you should take a course with Language Trainers.

Why Study Korean in Canberra
Learn Korean for Work: Learning Korean will help you stand out when applying for a new job in Canberra. If you are looking to connect with Korean businesses, you should get in touch with the Australia-Korea Foundation. Since 1978, this institution has been committed to promoting two-way trade and investment with the Republic of Korea, fostering economic cooperation and partnerships between the Australian and Korean business communities. It regularly holds talks, seminars and exclusive boardroom briefings to provide a forum for discussion of relevant issues. These events are always attended by native speakers, so take advantage of the opportunity and impress them with your Korean! And if you are not actively job-seeking but would like to travel to Korea instead, you will be happy to know there are direct and connecting flights via Korea Airlines and Qantas Airways. In a little over 11 hours, you can be in the fascinating city of Seoul, communicating with locals with the speaking skills you acquire with us at Language Trainers!
Learn Korean for Culture: There are many instances of Korean culture in and around Canberra, so you can experience it without ever leaving the city! For example, you should not miss the annual Korea Moon Festival at Dickson College. Every year, thousands of people flock to the streets of Canberra to enjoy this family event that includes K-pop music and dance, parades and games. Sing along to the music with the pronunciation you learn in your language course! And if you are more into cinema, you can attend the Korean Film Festival Australia, established in 2009. This festival screens big budget blockbusters and indie movies of different genres, all of them of Korean origin. Of course, every film presented at the festival screens with English subtitles, but we are sure you will not need them after taking some lessons with us.
Learn Korean for Social: Knowing Korean will also help you make new friends around the city. The Language Exchange - Canberra Meetup group, for instance, is a social club for any person interested in learning or improving a second language, including Korean. The Korean chapter of the group meet every Friday at 6.30 pm in different themed Korean restaurants, such as Chez Kimchi on Bunda Street or Insadong Waterfront Korean Restaurant on Strayleaf Cres. In these places, you can order hoeddeok or bulgogi using the Korean pronunciation you learn with Language Trainers. Impress your new friends with your new Korean skills!
