If you’ve ever wanted to learn the Korean language and have some fun at the same time there could be no better way than immersing yourself in Korean cultural life by staying with a Korean family and experiencing student life at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, Korea. 
The Fun Korean Language Trip is a 7D/6N tour package organised by the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) and Kyunghee University’s Institute of International Education. The package combines a language training program which teaches Korean through popular culture like dramas and K-pop and provides accommodation with Korean families through the Koreastay program.  This provides students with the best chance to learn and communicate in the Korean language as fast as possible.
The program provides twenty hours of Korean language tuition and six nights accommodation with a Korean family including breakfast.  You can choose from a free Korean cooking class or a Korea Pass Card ($US20 pre-paid tourist card).  After morning class you have the opportunity then to tour the city and enjoy many of the attractions of Seoul.  Optional tours include Korean Cultural Experience, K-pop Dance Experience, Seoul City Tour or Beauty Tour as well as a Gangnam Experience tour where you might even run in to PSY.
The Fun Korean Language Trip is a great way to learn some of the Korean language and enjoy the many attractions of Seoul city at the same time.  It also is a great chance to become friends with Korean University students and share your experience.
