Kyung Hee University

Korean language education first began in October, 1991 as a program only for exchange students invited by the committee of the Korea Foundation. Due to the recent trends of internationalization and globalization, interest in Korean language and the traditional culture of Korean society has been steadily rising. The Korean Language Program, since it first began in April, 1993, has become more systematic in its approach after the Korean language department of IIE incorporated it (formerly the Language Research Institute’s Korean language course) in June, 1997.

The program began with 10 students in 1993. In 1999, some 1,400 students including overseas Koreans and foreigners completed the program. In 2000, 1,600 students from 32 different countries came to partake in the program. In just a year, the number grew to 1,800 students, representing 35 different countries.
