|A government agency is sponsoring a secular "Sunday school" program for foreign children residing in Seoul to learn more about Korean language and culture.
The National Institute for International Education Development on March 7 introduced The Sunday Global School, which meets every Sunday until June 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Licensed teachers and volunteers conduct Korean language classes, outdoor games, field trips and cultural activities such as arts and crafts, food tasting and wearing traditional Korean clothing.
About 80 elementary school aged children from Japan, Taiwan and other foreign countries are participating in the pilot program. The school is no longer accepting new students for its current semester but plans to offer more classes in the future.
For more information, contact the NIIED at (02) 3668-1326. The NIIED is located near Hyehwa Station in Daehangno, across from Seoul University Hospital.
