The Fun Korean Lesson is a 5 day school program with 2 extra days for arrival and departure in your home stay and is conducted at the Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea. It is offered to foreigners during the Winter and Summer classes. For details in this program, you may check this link below http://www.visitkorea.com.my/fun-korean-lesson-trip-7-days-6-nights so you can find out their actual schedule for the remaining months of 2013. So the lesson consists of learning the Korean language, writing the Hangul system, speaking and basic conversation practice of the language, watching the tourists spots in Korean Dramas, learning K-Pop dance and at the end of the lesson, each will be given a certificate of recognition and will be done like it is an actual graduation day.

The most interesting part for me is the home stay program, when you join this FKLT Program, you are required to stay and live with a Korean family for 7D/6N and they will feed you breakfast every day. Aside from that, they will also show you how to wear their traditional costume. Our host was kind enough to extend their hospitality by taking us on a drive to Gangnam area, attended a local Christian wedding, shared lunch with them and brought us around a mall, they also send us to the Olympic Park. Living with this Korean family was such a very nice experience for us. I personally think that families who will join such program would definitely very kind people and not doing it just for the money they will get. For them, I think it’s a new experience too to have foreign guests in their own home and introduce Korean culture in the way the locals know.

And of course, I was told that the Winter classes are better than the Summer classes so you have the advantage of the cool weather. Summer in Seoul can be really hot especially now.
