Preparation for Korea
As you may have already heard from other Korean adoptees, the Korean language is a basic must to get a good chance for a suitable job for you. Some jobs do not require any Korean skills such as teaching jobs (however there are exceptions, some hakwons and academies require bilingual or Korean speakers with English as a second language), restaurants, bars, cleaning etc. These days they ask for basic Korean speaking skills but if you apply in the foreign districts English would be enough. It is highly recommended to apply for a Korean language course at a University in Korea.
Here are the most popular Universities to follow a Korean language course:
- Yonsei University (Sinchon)
- Sogang University
- Ewha Women's University (Men can also apply)
- Seoul National University
The most popular Korean language course is at Sogang University. Be aware that every university has different requirements to enter the Korean language course. Also the fees could vary.
