Korean courses in Seoul

Seoul is the world’s second largest metropolis in terms of population, with over 25 million inhabitants. Seoul is a bustling city, the centre of Korea’s political, economic, social and cultural life, offering unlimited opportunities for discovery and leisure.

Despite its population density, the city enjoys an ideal location, surrounded by the sea and snow-capped mountains, and built around the Han River. A city of rapid urbanisation, Seoul proudly displays its skyscrapers, bustling shopping streets and shopping centres, particularly renowned for their cosmetics.

The Gangnam district

Popularised worldwide by the singer Psy and his song “Gangnam style”, the Gangnam district is the place to be. A fashionable place par excellence, with a mix of wealth and excess, it attracts young Koreans who like to show off and observe others. Nevertheless, pop culture is omnipresent: fans of Korean films are bound to recognise the area!
