Lexis Korea is located just steps from Gangnam Station, in the vibrant heart of one of Asia's best known fashion and entertainment districts. Lexis Korea fills the 11th floor of the newly constructed ANY Tower, with floor-to-ceiling glass providing views over the hustle and bustle of Gangnam. Literally hundreds of cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs are within a short walk, while the fast and efficient Seoul Metro links Gangnam to the rest of city.
CLASSES FOR ALL LEVELS
This course is available for all students, regardless of their Korean proficiency. You'll be able to study from the stage of a complete beginner all the way to more advanced levels. Learn all four elements behind mastering the Korean language, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
LEARN AND USE IN REAL LIFE
The best part of studying in Korea is the opportunity to practice what you've learned. You have the freedom to go out in the afternoon to apply what was learned in the morning. This would involve ordering food in a restaurant, shopping in a store, and even making Korean friends, all accomplished without your feeling lost in a foreign country. By enrolling in the courses, you'll gain all the skills you need to do what you want!
For total beginners, you'll be able to jumpstart your Korean education with an immersive course that is much faster than simply studying Korean in your home country. You’d begin with the alphabet, then move onto self-introductions, need-to-know words, and grammar. Thereafter, you'll learn phrases, have conversations, and acquire other important knowledge such as how to ask for directions.
After breakfast from Monday to Friday, you will study for 3.5 hours (with breaks in-between!). Classes begin at about 9 in the morning.
STUDENTS WITH PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE
If you've already begun learning the Korean language, or have studied it before, you don't need to spend time relearning things you already know! Join a class level that matches your ability, and improve your Korean from where you left off. Polish and refine what you know, while boosting your knowledge by learning even newer things.
WE'VE PLANNED A LOT OF FUN
With the schedule the way it is, you’ll never feel bored. On the weekdays, we have an activity arranged for you afternoon, and the weekends are packed with fun-filled full day activities.

STUDY WITH INTERNATIONAL PEOPLE
The best part about studying abroad is the chance to form new relationships. With this opportunity to study in Korea, you're certain to meet people from all over the world as well as connect with local Koreans!
Your course fee already includes the price of your accommodations! You'll be placed in a mini-studio nearby the school, which is convenient and has no extra fees.
PRIVATE ROOMS AVAILABLE
The mini-studios are cheap and cozy, perfect for living alone. However, the spots are limited and some students may want a little extra space and luxury. If that's the case, you have the option of staying in a private hotel room, or a Korean host family in order to enhance your study trip experience!

I HAVE A NOTABLE DISABILITY. CAN I STILL JOIN THE COURSE AND ACTIVITIES?
This depends on your disability and situation. Please note that Go! Go! Hanguk is unable to provide any special assistance; if you have a movement-hindering disability, it may, unfortunately, mean it may not be possible to join due to the fact that many of the activities require walking and getting around without special transportation. Please consult with us before you make a booking. In cases of sudden injury or disability, our standard cancellation policy applies.
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS?
We accept booking payments both by international bank transfer, or with debit/credit card through PayPal.
WHAT ABOUT INSURANCE?
You will be responsible for obtaining travel insurance that covers hospital costs in case of injury or sickness.
DO I NEED A TOURIST VISA?
For students whose country is on the MOFA list, you don't need to apply for a visa before you come to Korea. You will be able to get a tourist visa on arrival at the airport.
MY COUNTRY IS NOT ON THE MOFA LIST, CAN YOU HELP ME APPLY FOR A TOURIST VISA?
Unfortunately, we cannot assist students in applying for such visas.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER HOUSING OPTIONS?
Of course! We recommend a mini studio due to the price, location, and the ability to stay with other students, but we understand that you may want to stay in a different type of housing.
For example, another option for housing is hotel rooms. This is recommended for students who want more room and higher quality housing. For an authentic Korean experience, a home stay with a Korean family is highly recommended, so you can get even more Korean practice in. To see how much all of these options might cost, check our booking page.
HOW DOES THE ACTUAL GETTING TO KOREA PART WORK?
As each student has different needs and preferences for traveling, Go! Go! Hanguk gives the student full flexibility in choosing their preferred method of arriving in Korea. You will be able to freely choose your city of departure, time of arrival, airline, etc. Note that airfare is not included in the course. Once you arrive, the course and all activities are all arranged and prepared by us.
CAN I STAY LONGER AT THE ACCOMMODATION?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. The cheap price and the student's spot in the accommodation is only available during the course. In the case of students wanting to arrive earlier or leave later, we can recommend a hotel for you. For homestays and private rooms, it's possible to stay longer.
I'M A PARENT AND I'M WORRIED ABOUT MY SON/DAUGHTER.
Some of the cultural activities during the course may involve entering establishments that serve alcoholic beverages, albeit in a safe environment. The legal drinking age in Korea is 19, and Go! Go! Hanguk will not allow underage students to drink alcohol during any of our events. Although Korea is one of the safest countries in the world, we understand that you may still be worried - in this case, we recommend you sign them up for the host family accommodation option, where they will be able to receive support from a Korean family during their stay. Note that while we provide a safe environment for students during the study trip, we cannot control what your child does and are not liable for their actions.
THE TOURS, ARE THEY NARRATED?
Our guided tours are laid back and casual; they do not include narration. However, as we do have Korean natives that come along on our activities, students will be able to mingle and make friends while exploring Korea.
