Seijong Korean Language Center, Hanoi has the mission of teaching Korean language through short courses.
Prof. Dr. Pham Gia Lam – Director of the Center said that having been formed and developed on the basis of close cooperation between the two large universities of Vietnam and Korea, the center offered numerous advantages for the learners. Most of teachers here are native speakers who have knowledge and training skills, who were carefully selected to meet the professional standards of Pusan University of Foreign Languages and Seijong Institute of Korean language. If the learners continuously enroll all of the courses from beginning to advanced, it is expected that within one year, students will be able to study at Pusan University of Foreign Languages and many other universities in Korea.
