Learn How to Speak Korean in Wellington

Get Started and Learn Korean

Diplomatic relations between New Zealand and Korea were established in 1962, and the New Zealand embassy opened in Seoul in 1971. But their political and economic ties date back even further to the Korean War (1950-53), wherein 6,000 New Zealanders served. Today, the relationship between these two countries, and with Wellington in particular, is still friendly and mutually beneficial. For example, the first New Zealand-Korea Joint Policy Committee on Education was (and continues to be) held in Wellington. Further, the 2013 census shows that over 2,500 residents in Wellington claim their first language is Korean, and these migrants have brought their culture to the city with them. Take a language course today and take advantage of all the social, cultural and professional opportunities the city has to offer to bilingual speakers.

Why Study Korean in Wellington

Learn Korean for Social: If you want to connect with the many Koreans living in Wellington or would like to practise your skills with other language learners, you can join meet-up groups to get to know like-minded people. One of them is the Wellington Korean and Culture Meetup, a language exchange group that meets once a week to have some traditional food and drink while speaking in Korean. They welcome any person interested in learning more about Korea, its language and its culture, regardless of their level or age. Take advantage of this opportunity to practise what you learn in your lessons with us and brush up your listening and speaking skills and vocabulary while making new friends and having a great time.

Learn Korean for Culture: But while there are groups of individuals who promote the Korean language, there are many institutions around the city that champion the Korean culture, too. One of them is the Korean Students Association of Wellington, an establishment that strives to promote and encourage students to explore Korean culture and language around the city. For example, they collaborate with the Korean Embassy on Hunter Street to organise the Annual Korean Film Festival, which screens a diverse range of traditional and contemporary films. These movies are screened in their original language, so don’t miss out on this chance to put your listening skills to the test while enjoying a good film. And if you are into K-pop, why not attend a karaoke bar to have some fun with friends? One of them is K-Zone Karaoke Bar on Wakefield Street. Sing along to the lively tunes and impress your friends with your excellent Korean pronunciation!

Learn Korean for Work: You will not regret studying Korean if you are looking to advance your career in Wellington. The Republic of Korea is New Zealand’s eighth-largest trading partner, with two-way goods and services trade totalling NZ$4.9 billion in 2018/9. Both nations have cooperation agreements for film, science and technology and education. So, if you are working in any of these fields, knowing Korean will prove to be an asset as you will be able to take advantage of international opportunities. And if you are looking to connect with businesspeople of Korean origin, you should not miss the networking events organised by the Korea New Zealand Business Council (Wellington Chapter). For example, at the end of each year, they host a gala for their members to get to know each other Why don’t you try to network with these entrepreneurs and business owners using your new Korean skills?
