Why Study Korean in Liverpool?

Learn Korean for Work and Travel

Learning Korean in Liverpool can be a significant career booster, especially given the city's increasingly globalised business environment. Top companies in the city like Bibbly Line Group, Liverpool Victoria and Princes Group, have established partnerships and ventures with multinationals from all around the globe, and are always on the hunt for bilingual talents who can bridge the language and cultural gap, making communication seamless and strengthening international relationships.

On the other hand, if you're an entrepreneur or a business owner looking to expand, having a command of the Korean language can offer an invaluable edge when entering the Korean market. Understanding the language enables better negotiation tactics, an insight into business etiquette, and a deeper grasp of market preferences. The benefits aren't just for the large enterprises; small businesses also gain a competitive advantage when they can communicate directly with Korean suppliers or customers.

What’s more, learning Korean can transform your travel experiences in South Korea into truly memorable adventures. While it's true that many Koreans speak English, especially in urban areas, knowing the local language is a game-changer for deep, authentic connections. Speaking Korean will allow you to venture beyond the tourist spots and engage meaningfully with locals, even in rural towns and villages where English speakers are rare. It will allow you to understand cultural nuances that you'd otherwise miss and gives you the freedom to explore local markets, eateries, and hidden gems without the language barrier.

Learn Korean for Social

Immersing yourself in Korean culture in Liverpool goes way beyond the classroom. The city offers a plethora of cultural events that will deepen your connection to Korea and reinforce your language learning. The University of Liverpool's K-pop Society is a cultural hotspot for anyone eager to delve into Korean culture while in Liverpool. This friendly society offers an array of events that go far beyond just music. From dance routines inspired by contemporary Korean pop culture to interactive exhibitions exploring themes like ancestry and identity, the society aims to make Korean culture accessible and engaging.

Their K-pop Celebration is a highlight, featuring a dance routine that resonates with themes from current exhibitions. Designed in collaboration with exhibiting artists, the event is not just about performing, but about understanding the cultural narratives that shape these performances. And the best part? It's open to people of all ages and abilities.

Learn Korean for Culture

Diving into the world of Korean language and culture can be a life-changing experience, especially if you're based in Liverpool. The city offers unique opportunities for socialising and building meaningful connections, not only with foreign-born locals, but also with fellow students. For example, if you attend the Liverpool Korean Culture and Language exchange, you’ll be able to put your skills to the test and meet like-minded individuals who share you passion for Korean language and culture. Meet-ups are organised every Friday, at Kokoro Liverpool, a lively restaurant located 77 Church Street. The evening starts with a Korean language session, followed by a general chat in English, ensuring everyone can engage regardless of their language proficiency. After that, for those who are 18+, the evening progresses to Pub Time, providing a casual setting to apply your newly acquired language skills and deepen cultural understanding.

So, why should you attend? Not only will you gain valuable linguistic skills, but you'll also make friends who share your interest in Korean culture. The respectful and friendly atmosphere makes it a perfect platform for both learning and expanding your social circle. So, if you're looking to enrich your social life while learning Korean in Liverpool, this Language Exchange is an opportunity you won't want to miss.

“아리랑” (Arirang)

Listen to popular Korean songs to learn useful vocabulary, develop your pronunciation and about the culture and beliefs of native speakers! For example, Arirang is a piece that talks about a woman whose lover stops caring about her. She ultimately loses the love of her life and travels throughout Korea to find him. So, you will get familiar with words that express love, sorrow and heartbreak, as well as with geographic locations in the country and words related to landscapes, such as hills (eondeog), clear sky (malg-eun haneul) or long rivers (gin gang).

korean Songs

Spring Day- BTS

Are you a BTS fan looking to improve their Korean skills? Then, catchy, upbeat songs, like Spring Day, can be your best allies. This specific piece talks about two lovers who hate the passing of time because they are not together, and it is great for beginners because it does not include any complicated structures or vocabulary. In fact, the song is entirely in the present-simple tense and uses everyday terms related to feelings, such as hate, love, heart or kiss. Plus, it has a fairly slow pace and a lot of repetition, so you can sing along to the song and practise your pronunciation! Listen to this piece here!

Lonely- 2NE1

If K-pop is one of your passions, why not combine it with your Korean studies to improve your skills in a meaningful way? For example, you can listen to Lonely, one of the most well-known hits by 2NE1, a girl K-pop band. The song is about a girl who decides to get over a heartbreak and move on. Instead of feeling lonely and sad about this situation, she realises she needs to get together with her friends and do things that make her happy. The song is great for advanced students because it features a lot of idioms and colloquial phrases. Listen to this piece here!
