Frequently asked questions 🤔❓

Learning Korean is practical: it’s an in-demand skill for business and technology, thanks to South Korea’s status as an economic powerhouse. It’s also a plus for fans of Korean popular culture and those interested in studying in Asia. Proficiency in Korean opens doors in a variety of sectors, and is increasingly sought after on the global market.

Preparing a language stay in South Korea requires careful planning to ensure a smooth and enriching experience. Here are a few key steps:

  • School search and selection: Explore the different language schools and programs available in South Korea. Read reviews, compare curricula, and select the one that meets your learning needs and budget.

  • Visas and legal documents :
    Find out what type of visa you need for your stay. Prepare all required documents, such as a letter of acceptance from the school and proof of sufficient funds.

  • Budget:
    Draw up a provisional budget, taking into account tuition fees, accommodation, food, local transport, health insurance and personal expenses.

  • Accommodation:
    Decide whether you’d like to stay in a university dormitory, with a host family, or rent an apartment. Book your accommodation in advance.

  • Trip planning :
    Buy your plane tickets and plan your itinerary. Don’t forget to check the start and end dates of your program.

  • Health insurance :
    Take out international insurance to cover medical care in South Korea.

  • Learning before you go:
    Start learning the basics of Korean before you leave. This will help you adapt more quickly once you’re there.

  • Culture and customs:
    Learn about Korean culture, social norms and customs to avoid faux pas and integrate more easily.

  • Connectivity:
    Make sure you have a solution for staying connected, whether through a local SIM card or an international plan.

English is widely taught and used, especially in major cities and tourist areas.

In addition to the Korean language, you’ll also learn about South Korean culture, customs, history and social norms.

In South Korea, host families are a popular option for international students and offer many advantages.

These families open their homes and share their daily lives with students, enabling a deep cultural and linguistic immersion. By living with locals, you’ll be immersed in the Korean language on a daily basis, which is invaluable for improving your comprehension and expression.

What’s more, host families often provide home-cooked meals, giving you the chance to discover authentic Korean cuisine and take part in traditional celebrations. It can also be a way of forging strong ties and creating a second family on the other side of the world.

Students who opt for this form of accommodation often report a more personal and welcoming experience than that offered by student residences or apartments. In addition, host families can also offer practical advice on navigating life in Korea, from using public transport to understanding social norms. It’s a great way to acclimatize quickly, while enjoying the support of friends and family.

Korean is the official and most widely spoken language in South Korea.

It’s common to think that Korean is difficult to learn, especially for those whose mother tongue is very different, like French or English.

However, this perception is not entirely accurate. The Korean alphabet, Hangeul, has been designed to be intuitive and accessible, enabling learners to master it quickly. The grammar, despite its different structure, is coherent, with clear rules that limit exceptions. What’s more, Korean has no distinction between grammatical genders, and no definite or indefinite articles, which makes learning easier.

What’s more, much modern Korean vocabulary borrows from English and other languages, creating bridges for learners. So, with the right methods and immersion, learning Korean can be more accessible than it seems.

J'ai passé un séjour linguistique incroyable à Malte grâce à LangStart. L'enseignement était de qualité et les professeurs étaient très compétents. L'emplacement de l'école était idéal, à proximité de la plage et du centre-ville. J'ai été ravi de l'organisation de LangStart, qui m'a accompagné du début jusqu'à mon arrivée sur place et a prévu ma prise en charge à l'aéroport au moment de mon arrivée. Je recommande les yeux fermés.
