Although it is possible to study the Korean language anywhere in the world, the best place to study the Korean language is right here in South Korea.

Not only will you be able to apply for and enroll in Korean language programs at some of the top universities in South Korea from Yonsei to Sunggyunkwan to Ewha through Inspired Steps, but you will also be able to immerse yourself in the Korean langauge.

So, let's start by talking about the benefits of Korean language immersion programs-- and why language immersion matters so much!

The Benefits of Korean Language Immersion Programs

Studying the Korean language in your home country is a good idea. After all, you can take high school or college classes on the Korean language or even just study the Korean language by yourself at home. However, although it is a good idea, it is not the best idea.

People learn languages in a variety of ways. When we are young we learn one, two or even three languages with ease. However, as we get older it becomes harder to learn new languages.

We struggle to pick up even themost basic pronunciation and grammar of a new language, which is why so many people give up on the Korean. It just seems impossible.

Here's where immersion comes in to solve these language learning problems-- and save the day! Immersion provides people with the constant stimuli they need to learn a new language at an older age.

Read Korean. Listen to Korean. Speak Korean.

Read Korean. Listen to Korean. Speak Korean.

Read Korean. Listen to Korean. Speak Korean.

This constant process in any of a number of situations from catching a taxi and giving directions to ordering food at a local restaurant to introducing yourself to new people is what is required to learn the Korean langauge.

Simply reading from Korean language textbooks in class or at home serves no purpose without actual immersion in which the Korean language is used-- and used on a daily basis.
