Woorirang Korea, which receives support from Incheon Business Information Technopark, has developed a systematic grammar education program which utilizes ‘Woorirang Pattern’ with around 100 updated contents per month, so that people can learn the Korean language in a fun manner, with subjects covering travel, beauty, culture, and others, which amount to around 10 subjects.

The Korean language education video call platform is an educational curriculum and program for foreign students or foreigners hoping to get jobs in Korea, and the use of Hallyu videos teaches effective and practical Korean.

This platform lets students have unlimited viewing of videos from a special website for a specific period, to pick teachers and study through video call, to find custom curricula and make suggestions through education management, and students can also use the application for content viewing and studying, and to ask questions through the messenger function.

It analyzes the study content, level, and rating to create custom education programs and offer premium services for employment.

CEO Jeonghwa Nam says, “Currently, the number of foreigners who live in Korea or are preparing to find work in Korea is increasing, and the demand for Korean education is increasing as well,” and added, “besides for the foreigners living in Korea, service cooperation with Hong Kong Polytechnic University to support classes is under discussion, and content cooperation with online education related companies are also under discussion.”

It was said that “The improvement of patented composition systems to provide Korean composition services is planned,” and that, “programs to link with employment will be activated and the company will lend support to effectively and practically help foreigners wishing to get jobs in Korean companies and help them realize their dreams in Korea.”.
