Working Holiday in Korea

Korean [Language]

Being able to speak Korean makes you much more marketable and increases your likelihood of getting a job in Korea. A good command of the Korean language will not only benefit you in your career but also help you to master daily life and participate more actively in Korean society. English is not widely spoken in everyday life or in the workplace in Korea.

Therefore, we advise you to learn Korean as much as possible prior to your working holiday in Korea. Korean language courses are taught at several universities around the world. The Korean Embassy and Consulates in your home country can also help you locate opportunities to learn Korean near your vicinity.
