Fun Korean For Elementary Children (Junior Learners)
Why Learn Korean?
Did you know that Korean is considered a “critical language”? Critical language is a term used to describe languages where there is large demand for language professionals but little supply. We believe the earlier children learn Korean, the better positioned they will be for the future!
Korean is still not a widely taught language (as compared to English, Mandarin, Spanish etc). Because of this, there will always be a shortage of talents who can speak Korean. Learning Korean connects your child to greater opportunities in a 21st century global environment.
My child can just speak English.
While South Korea is a modernised country with one of the world’s largest and most innovative economies, it remains a deeply traditional country where knowledge of Korean language and culture is a huge advantage to anyone interested in a future in the region.
Koreans highly value trust and interpersonal bonds – this is why local language is particularly valuable. Are you preparing your child for a brighter future with stronger opportunities?
