My Korean Language has improved a lot after attending the Korean language class at APU. The Professor from DSU (Dr. Seo Kyu Won) is a Korean and he is like a talkative and super friendly Uncle. Besides teaching the Korean language programme, he also teaches us a lot about Korea Culture and how local Koreans speak instead of focusing entirely on the textbook. The fee for the programme is also very affordable, especially for APU students.

It has made learning Korean very enjoyable by making it very engaging. Everyone has a chance to practice together during class. Dr Seo is also very patient and kind with us. This course has been by far the most effective to me.


Damia Batrisyia Binti Ahmed Faizul - Student who has applied to study in Korea, Dongseo University

I have learnt a lot within these 6 weeks of classes. The classes were super fun, entertaining and more importantly interactive. It was easy to understand although the teacher is a native Korean speaker. I really enjoyed the speaking and listening activities in class. When everyone is familiar with some Korean phrases, we will just answer the teacher's questions in Korean and it sometimes turned out to be fun! but we learned a lot from it. On top of that, My classmates were really supportive and fun to learn with. Now, I know more about the Korean vocabulary and grammar, and I am able to create a perfect complete sentence! I am truly thankful to get the  opportunity to join this Korean Language Programme especially when I am preparing to further my studies in Korea soon.’’
