Sogang is also a very well reputed Korean language course located in the Sinchon area, literally a 15 minute walk from the Yonsei front gates.
What foreigners say: Known and recommended by all as the university with the best program for those who want to learn how to “speak” the language. Courses slightly more emphasized towards speaking and practicing during classes. It has become a favourite for American soldiers who are required to take classes. But as I’ve stated previously you shouldn’t be relying on a language program for your Korean language practice!
Quoted as 1,620,000 KRW/Term for the regular 먹튀검증 classes in the morning for 2014 (200 hour course over 10weeks)
Living:: See the explanation for Yonsei. They are both located in the Sinchon / Hongdae area.
located in the Sinchon / Hongdae area in Eastern Seoul. famous for it’s lively night life and array of interesting coffee shops, bars, restaurants and shopping. The epicenter of youth life in the city and a great place for those who want to party as much as they study and expose themselves to the infamous night life of Korea. That said while it may be fun to visit these areas occasionally, living in them isn’t for everybody. That means walking home and passing bar after bar and the occasional drunk. Also means there will be occasional couples fighting or general drunk loudness nearby your officetel / hasukjip or dormitory. It also means that you will be sharing your experience with a large proportion of other foreign students (something I know some people would rather avoid). Living in this area is also on the more expensive side especially for a one room studio. Expect to get a lot less for more with average one room prices around 500,000KRW/Month with a 5,000,000KRW Key Money or More. Hauskjips and Dormitories will cost less but provide fairly small rooms with communal services (Not great if you plan on entertaining!!)
Is known to have more Americans and Europeans because of it’s emphasis on speaking however current students studying at Sogang have said 70 – 80 % of students are Japanese / Chinese.
Atmosphere: Similar vibe and atmosphere to Yonsei in the general area / suburb but as it is not as large as the Yonsei program it loses a bit of that excitement. Smaller class sizes and smaller student body make it a more of a community – you are bound to recognize everyone after 6 months.
Culture / Job Opportunities: Not as well informed when it comes to job opportunities or cultural activities but it is good for networking with other students because of the smaller community approach.
