Learn Korean at City Lit in London and Online

Korean is one of the top growing languages at City Lit. Find out why we think there's never been a better time to learn Korean.

Korean is one of the world’s oldest languages and is spoken by nearly 80 million people across the world. Korean is described as an ‘isolate’ language meaning it does not share many similarities with other languages. This makes it a more challenging language to learn but also just as interesting.

Did you know, when reading the shape of the letters, they mimic what your tongue is doing to pronounce them?

At City Lit, we offer a range of Korean courses, ideal for those looking to start their language journey or for those looking to develop their skills to make them a confident speaker of the language.

Many of our courses are delivered online. For more information about our live online courses, please see our guide to online learning.
