Learn Korean, Earn Seoul
People are getting more and more interested in South Korea, its language and its traditions. Many people listen to K-pop and watch Korean movies and soap operas too!
If you would like to expose your child to the Korean language and culture, or to be immersed culturally and linguistically amongst other children from different backgrounds, come along and have fun with our playgroup.
Open for children (from 18 months – 5 years), Agape School’s Korean Playgroup uses different fun methods to engage kids, such as role-play, songs, and games. Unlike normal classes, they aren’t bored! This program will help the children to build up a solid Korean language foundation and keep up their interest for further development.
If your work involves regular contact with speakers of Korean, being able to talk to them in their own language will help you to communicate better with them. It may also help you increase sales, find a new job or get a transfer overseas, for greater career opportunities.
Agape School of Education offers more than just Korean language education - you will also better understand the culture, history, and business etiquette of Koreans. Get in touch with us to find the best class for your individual needs.
You may have struggled with a language barrier with your partner, in-laws, relatives or friends who speak Korean. Or you may want to be closer to your friends or neighbours who speak Korean.

We can help you learn Korean
The excellence and originality of Hangeul (Korean language) have been well-received throughout the world. The UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prize was created in 1989, after Hangeul was designated as National Treasure No. 70, to honour government or private organisations for their contributions to spreading literacy. .
The academic world also recognised the value of Hangeul. In the textbook East Asia: The Great Tradition, which was used at Harvard University in 1960, Hangeul was described as “the most scientific writing system”.
Korean popular culture, also known as ‘Hallyu’, has had a huge influence on the spread of Korean worldwide. Women often refer to an older brother or older male, often a lover, as ‘Oppa’ and it has become one of the most widely-recognised Korean words. A quick search for the keyword "Oppa" on Instagram produces nearly 1.5 million results, with the vast majority of results being photos of male idol celebrities..
Korean adjectives are the most interesting and challenging part of Korean to learn. For example, dandan (단단) and ttak-ttak (딱딱) both mean 'hard' but the understanding the subtle differences between the two is difficult.
The nuances in Korean adjectives does not always come across directly in other languages. The descriptive verbs shiwon-hada (시원하다), seoneul-hada (서늘하다) and seonseon-hada (선선하다) are all on the temperature spectrum but describe different things.
The Modern Language Association of the United States reported that enrolment in Korean classes rose 45% from 2009–2013 at a time when enrolment in second language foreign courses declined by 6.7% overall. In addition, the number of colleges offering Korean has jumped by 70% over the last decade and is offered in 154 colleges.
