Many universities and study abroad programs require students to be above 18 years of age. We thought that this was really unfortunate for all of those who want to experience life in Korea, but are still too young - that's why we are offering this Youth Study Trip for ages 14 to 17. It's a chance for those under 18 to experience Korean culture, K-pop and Hallyu, and study the Korean language right here in Seoul. You will be able to study at one of the best private academies in Gangnam, while also experiencing a range of safe and fun activities. It's the perfect balance between useful Korean study, and all the fun of a vacation in Korea - return home with a bunch of unforgettable memories and a vastly improved Korean ability!
- Join the only 2 week Study Trip from Go! Go! Hanguk specifically made youth ages 14-17
- Enjoy your study trip in peace, knowing that our English speaking staff will be there to support you
- Experience a wide range of K-pop and K-culture activities every weekday afternoon and all-day during the weekend
- Stay with a local host-family in a house with another Youth Korea student of the same gender for an authentic Korean experience. (Breakfast and dinner included)
- Meet people from all over the world as well as connect with local Koreans!
Lexis Korea is located in the center of famous Gangnam. It is a place where you can experience a different side to Korea by being in one of Asia's most famous shopping and entertainment areas. From a high-quality education in the morning time to fun times in downtown Gangnam later in the day, you’re guaranteed a wealth of experience!
Your course fee already includes the price of your accommodations! You'll be placed in a home stay with a Korean family. A home stay is a great way to learn about the Korean society and customs from the moment you arrive, and this can be a great experience for you.

In order to participate in the Youth Korea study course, health or travel insurance is mandatory. Please sign-up for the insurance of your choice (in your home country) and send us a scanned copy prior to the start of the course. Failure to do so will result in automatic cancellation of your registration.
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.
We accept booking payments both by international bank transfer, or with debit/credit card through PayPal.
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.
All pickup transportation costs are included in the course fee, but your flight must arrive between 9am to 5pm. Go! Go! Hanguk staff will be running a pick up service for Incheon and Gimpo Airport; look out for the red signboard with our logo on it. A staff member will be there to meet you and guide you to the accommodation using public transportation.

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.
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.
Some cultural activities during the course, albeit in a safe and relaxed environment, does involve being in establishments that serve alcoholic beverages. Not to worry, the legal drinking age in Korea is 19 years old, which means that we will not allow alcohol being served to underage students during any of our events. Korea is one of the safest countries in the world, and we strive to provide a safe environment for all students.
No, unfortunately this is not possible. Every student must leave the family on the last Saturday of the course (12th of August). Go! Go! Hanguk staff will pick you up from your accomodation and guide you to the airport.
