Busan Foundation for International Activities (BFIA) will run the 2015 Korean classes program for free, aiming at foreigners in Busan to help reduce their inconvenience due to a lack of ability in the Korean language. Last year, 534 attendees attended classes during the three semesters offered.
This year, Korean classes will once again be offered three times a year, and for 12 weeks at a time, with a differentiated curriculum from Level 1 to Level 7. All levels will offer 120 minutes of lessons, either once or twice a week. There will be a morning class (9:30~11:30) and an evening class (18:30~20:30), and a maximum of 20 students per class. The 1st semester of Korean classes will run from March 2nd to May 22nd following a level test & registration period from February 23rd to 27th.
Within this period, you should visit the BFIA and register after first checking your Korean level. More detailed information and schedules are available on the website.
