Lexis Korea Busan campus to open 24th July 2017!

Lexis Korea is pleased to announce the opening of our second Korean language school, in the beachside city of Busan this coming 24th July, 2017!

unnamed

Busan is a vibrant and dynamic city, famed for its stunning stretches of beaches. With a population of approximately 3.5 million people, Korea’s second largest city is a bustling metropolis with world-class resorts, a vibrant merchant culture, and all the excitement that you would expect from Korea’s cultural capital!

Busan has so much to offer; just minutes from the bustling downtown area you can lounge on one of Asia’s finest beaches, explore the wilds of Korea’s national parks, get lost in the world’s largest department store, find inner peace meditating in a temple, and enjoy the fresh seafood in the largest fish market in Korea.

Student’s choose Busan as a study destination for the laid-back vibe, the very affordable cost of living, a the year-round welcoming climate.  While Seoul is the business capital of Korea, Busan is where Koreans come to have fun!

Busan proudly claims the status of ‘ Korea’s Cultural Capital, with many international events such as the Busan International Film Festival, Busan Fireworks Festival, Haeundae Sand Festival taking place each year.

But life in Busan is all about the ocean,  with stunning coastlines and a range of water leisure sports that includes banana boating, jet skis and even a 200m long water slide into the ocean.

Of course, if one is eager to escape the frantic pace of city life and opt for a more relaxing summer holiday, just unwinding and lazing by the beach, we assure you that Busan would not disappoint. Known as the “Miami of South Korea”, Busan is the most popular summer holiday destination in Korea and has something to offer everyone!

Lexis Korea Busan campus will be located right in the heart of Seomyeon – the downtown, and central commercial hub of Busan. It’s an ideal place for shopping, food and entertainment.

Lexis Busan fills the entire 6th floor of the landmark DS Tower, located right opposite popular Jeonpo Cafe Street, home to the uniquely Korean take on the ‘hipster culture’.

unnamed (2)Seomyeon, much like the Gangnam of Seoul, is bustling with life all day long….and long into the night.  Busan’s best shopping deals are to be found in Seomyeon Underground Shopping Center and the streets of Seomyeon are filled with cafes, bars, and restaurants that offer delicious and inexpensive food which naturally attracts many young people.

Here at Lexis Korea, our mission has always been to offer the best Korean language study experience possible; and now we’re taking it one step further with the opening of our Lexis Busan campus! You may find our updated fees list here.

We invite you to experience Busan whilst studying the Korean language with us! We’re offering an early bird opening promotion – 50% off tuition fees for new students who enrol before August 31st, 2017! No minimum number of weeks required. Exclusive at Lexis Busan only.

Well done, Martijn!

Last week we had a student from Netherlands by the name Martijn who started at Lexis Korea in our very first absolute beginner level, known as the Korean Foundation level and completed all the way through to our final level, which is the Advanced level.

Martijn first joined us in December 2015 for 6 months, then returned again in October 2016 for 7 months. He studied with us for a total of 13 months.

During the time that Martijn was studying with us, he put in a lot of effort and studied really hard. We’re proud to have a student like you, Martijn. He memorizes vocabulary very well, so much so that his classmates often nickname him “the walking dictionary”.

Congratulations Martijn for completing our Intensive Korean course! Well done and we hope to see you again in the near future. 🙂

Martijn - EDIT

“저는 Foundation부터 Advanced 까지 렉시스에서 공부했던 마르테인입니다. 렉시스에 두회 왔습니다. 첫번째는 2015년 12월으로부터 6게월 동안공부하고 두번째는 2016년 10월 부터 7게월 동안 공부했습니다.

처음에는 한글만 읽을 수 있을정도로 할수 없었지만 지금은 한국대표적인 상을 받았던 소솔’ 채식주의사’를 독서합니다.

렉시스에서 공부했던 시간은 정말 재미있었습나다. Foundation부터Intermediate까지는 반친구랑 친구를 많이 만들었고 선생님들도 너무 잘 갈쳤습니다.

Upper-intermediate부터는 반친구들 많이 없어서 좀 외로웠습니다. 하지만 선생님덕분 좋은 시간을 보내고 한국어실력이 많이 늘었습니다.

한국어를 렉시스에서 공부해서 후회가 없습니다!”

Thank you for choosing us, and we hope you had a great time here at Lexis Korea. 🙂

Kimchi Making Class / Kelas Kebudayaan Membuat Kimchi

Last Friday, we visited Museum Kimchikan (뮤지엄김치간) located in Insadong so our students can learn about the origin and history of Korea’s most traditional and signature dish – kimchi. Our students were educated on the different types of kimchi available according to season and region, as well as the nutritional benefits that kimchi offers.

SAMSUNG CSC

They also offer Kimchi making class so you get to get your hands on learning the actual kimchi making process, which was very eye-opening for our students.

SAMSUNG CSC

There is a professional kimchi making instructor who took us on a step-by-step process of making kimchi.

SAMSUNG CSC

It was an eye-opening experience for our students who had so much fun learning about the kimchi making students, and actually trying it out for themselves; mixing the different ingredients together, and rolling the spices into the cabbage.

SAMSUNG CSC

After we were done with making the kimchi, our students were given individual storage containers and they got to take home with them the kimchi that they made. Best souvenir to bring home, we reckon! 

SAMSUNG CSC

Whilst some may find kimchi to be spicy and salty considering that it is a fermented dish, what do you think? Does kimchi suit your taste? If you too love kimchi like we do, this kimchi making class is highly recommended for those who would love to learn more about Korean’s most traditional dish.

**********

SAMSUNG CSC

Pada Jumaat lepas, bersama dengan beberapa pelajar-pelajar kami,  kami melawat ke Muzium Kimchikan untuk belajar tentang proses membuat kimchi dan menghadiri kelas kebudayaan membuat kimchi.

Jika anda suka makanan Korea, wajib untuk tahu apa itu kimchi dan lebih baik lagi kalau belajar proses untuk membuat hidangan tradisional Korea ini.

SAMSUNG CSC

Di Lexis Korea, selain daripada kelas-kelas yang kami tawarkan, kami juga menganjurkan aktiviti kebudayaan untuk membolehkan pelajar-pelajar kami peluang untuk mengetahui lebih lanjut tentang budaya Korea.

Pelajar-pelajar kami diberikan resepi membuat kimchi yang senang dan sedap. Ramuan membuat kimchi disediakan di sekolah dan cara membuat kimchi dijelaskan langkah demi langkah oleh pengajar.

Pelajar-pelajar kami masing-masing sibuk dan teruja! Selepas siap, hasil kimchinya dibungkus dan pelajar-pelajar dapat membawa pulang kimchi mereka sebagai cenderamata.

SAMSUNG CSC

Kami percaya pengalaman terbaik untuk pelajar-pelajar kami adalah untuk belajar bahasa Korea sambil belajar sejarah dan budaya Korea.

Jika anda berminat untuk belajar Bahasa Korea langsung di Korea Selatan, anda boleh mengambil kesempatan ini untuk menggunakan promosi kami – maklumat lanjut terdapat pada post ini.

Sekian, terima kasih! Kamsahamida. 🙂

Testimonials from our students

As we run a weekly curriculum, every Friday we have students who would wrap up their studies with us. We would pass on our Student Survey form to finishing students to get their feedback on their experience here with us.

josefine

Josefine really enjoyed her stay with us and had a lot to say about her class and teacher:

“I really liked my teacher’s teaching style. I liked that my teacher asked about differences in culture regarding the countries the student come from.”

Josefine also further shared:

“I already studied at Lexis Korea last year and learned a lot. That’s why I returned this year during my spring break. I had a lot of fun again and met really nice people. I enjoyed my time in Korea a lot and hope that I’ll be able to come back again soon.”

Our Taiwanese student, Wei-Ju who completed her course at Elementary level, left her feedback in Korean:

렉시스 코리아에 와서 좋은 선생님이랑 같이 공부 할 수 있어서 너무 행복해요. 렉시스 코리아 직원들이 너무 친절해요. 렉시스 수업이 끝난 후에 활동이 너무 많아서 재미있었어요. Meet up 하고 Student Night 이 있기 때문에 다른 나라 학생들과 만날 수 잇꼬 같이 이야기 하고 놀을 수 있어서 너무 행복해요.

We are pleased to know that you had such a positive Korean language study experience with us. In her feedback above, she went on to say that she is glad to have been able to come to Lexis Korea and study with a good teacher. She even said that the staff members at Lexis Korea are so kind. Wei-Ju also liked that we offered lots of different and fun activities. Amongst the many activities that we run, she liked Lexis Meet Up and Student Night activity the most as she was able to meet students from other countries.

Thank you for your kind feedback, Wei-Ju. We will work hard to keep providing our students with the best possible experience! 🙂

Lise

When asked about her experience in general, here’s what Lise had to say:

“My experience here was very good. School didn’t stop too late so I had time to visit and the activities suggested were very interesting. The location of the school is very nice too, making it easy to take the subway.”

bap

Baptiste from France studied with us for 5 weeks and left his feedback in French as below:

When asked what did you like most about your class, he responded with:

  • Les professeurs à l’écoute et gentille.
  • La methodologie du cours.
  • L’organisation.

We also ask our students to share both positive and negative aspects of their teachers, but we always receive only positive feedback and this time, it is no different.

  • Disponible & à l’écoute (referring to how our teachers are always willing to help and listen to what our students have to say)
  • Souriante (smiling)
  • Joyeuse (bright)
  • Gentille (kind)

As we implement a Korean language only rule in class, we often wonder how our students cope with this rule. Here’s what Baptiste has to say:

Même si c’est difficile de tout comprendre, cela permet de progresser plus rapidement. Une bonne règle. (Even though it’s difficult to understand everything, it makes you progress faster! Good rule!)

And finally, with his overall experience, Baptiste we’re glad you had a good experience.

C’était une très bonne expérience. J’ai découvert la Corée du sud de la meilleure façon. Je reviendrai. (Avec un autre logement) C’était génial! 감사합니다 🙂

A big THANK YOU to all our students for such positive feedback! It is with your constant support and motivation that keeps us all going. Here at Lexis Korea we pride ourselves in providing exceptional service, and to receive such kind words from our students makes a huge difference so thank you.

Of course, there are times when we also receive constructive feedback and we really appreciate that so we can further improve and provide our students with the best possible experience.
