and knowledge can only be gained by being out in the real-world, immersing yourself in the culture and challenging oneself through active learning.

One week of immersive REAL-LIFE EXPERIENCE will always triumph over months of studying a language without practice.

LANGUAGE LEARNING ADVENTURE

WHAT IS FARMPING?

A combination of ‘farming’ and ‘camping’, farmping is the latest holiday trend which is rising in popularity in Korea.

A highly recommended activity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, you will experience a total immersion of authentic Korean culture at one of the most beautiful outskirt destinations in Korea!

Witness some of the most breathtaking scenes you will otherwise not be able to see as a regular tourist! See Korea through the eyes of the locals.

WHAT THEY SAY

I was a bit hesitant initially because it was not a typical Korean trip in a beautiful city but after 5 days, I felt like I have known so much about the country and people. Truly a life-changing experience.
Suezanne Lee
Languages class is usually very boring, BUT out of expectation, Mr Yoon make it very interesting and fun learning with games, jokes, fun activities and etc. I enjoyed my farm stay and the Koreans were very hospitable. Miss them already!
Daniel Choe
The most interesting thing from the trip is getting to see how my favourite kimchi is being made. From pulling out the cabbage from the soil to marinating it, really end to end experience!

WHY JOIN US?

배움의 신조

Farmping Experience with Yoon Ssam 2

Experience lasts a lifetime.

Yes, you have gone through the learning and practice stage, but have you truly experienced the language yet?

We believe one week of immersive  EXPERIENCE will always triumph over months of studying a language without practicing it in REAL LIFE SITUATION.

Time to bring your language learning journey to the top!

1. OPPORTUNITY TO PRACTISE KOREAN

실전 한국어 연습

To cater to thousands of tourists visiting Korea daily, businesses are mandating that their employees be able to communicate in Mandarin or English. As such, your opportunity to practise as a tourist in Seoul (for example) is limited as you will be accommodated.

Throughout the farmping stay, you will be seen and treated as a LOCAL. There will be plenty of opportunity to practise.
Farmping Experience with Yoon Ssam 4

2. THE LOCAL TOUCH

현지인과의 교감

Rather than fleeting encounter with a native Korean through shopping or dining in the busy city, you will be able to make meaningful and authentic relationship with friendly locals throughout your farmping stay.

See the country through the eyes of a local. Listen to their experience. Speak their language. You’ll realise there’s so much more to Korea than what you knew.
Farmping Experience with Yoon Ssam 5

3. BREATHTAKING ENVIRONMENT

자연과의 교감

Yes, Seoul or Jeju are beautiful. But there is so much more rawness and character to these unchartered laid-back rural locations.

You will be able to see for yourself how your favourite Korean ingredients are grown, harvested or made.
Farmping Experience with Yoon Ssam 6

4. SPONTANEOUS & FLEXIBLE

계획하지 않은 뜻밖의 즐거움

Leaving room for spontaneity and flexibility often leads to wonderful unexpected experience. We are not here to cover as many landmarks or do as many things as possible.

This trip will focus on quality, fun and how will it benefit you in your learning experience.

GENERAL FAQS

If you don’t see the answer to your question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

No. The rate is not inclusive of airfare. Once you’re signed up, we will be contacting you to align on the farm departure date so that you can make the necessary air ticket purchase.

It’s extremely difficult to join the trip after departure as the location is not easy to navigate. It is possible to leave the trip early however you will be responsible for your own arrangements from the moment you decide to leave.

You would also be responsible for all costs associated with leaving early. If you feel this may be necessary, please consult us before you book your adventure.

Sign up for ‘Adventure of A Lifetime’ where you’ll be signing up for the Farmping Experience + RM500 Pre-Book Ski Trip fee. With this fee, we will do the necessary booking to get the best possible prices and communicate the final amount at a later date.

As with all winter trips overseas, please layer up with sufficient layer of heat tech / long johns and you should be good. There will be heated floor at the accommodation.  

For better learning experience, we aim to keep the group small and within a maximum of 20 pax per trip.

Minimum age to join is 16. Participants below the age of 18 are required to get written consent from parents.

For our previous farmping trip back in 2017, we had participants with age ranging from 20-40. We do not see age as a limitation when it comes to language learning, everyone is welcome. 🙂

You are required to purchase your own travel insurance before booking a trip. All participants are responsible for their own personal travel insurance. 

Most certainly not! We are a Korean language studio based in Penang which strongly advocates ACTIVE LEARNING and LEARNING THROUGH EXPERIENCE.

Hence, despite his busy teaching schedule, our principal Yoon Ssam has asserted the importance of travelling to Korea with language learners to practise in real-life situations.

This experience is designed with learners in mind and NOT profit-driven. Throughout the whole planning process, we are always looking for the most affordable and reasonable rates to ensure a pleasant travel experience.

Sure, as long as you have the will to learn Korean along the way! We are pretty sure you will pick up something throughout the whole experience. We do have helpers who will be assisting participants in terms language barrier.
