Apprenez à parler Coréen à Calgary

Start Learning

Korean is one of the most spoken languages worldwide, with more than 75 million speakers spread across the globe, including Canada: In 2016, there were 160,455 people in Canada who reported Korean as their mother tongue, according to Ethnologue, and more than 8,000 of them live in Calgary’s metropolitan area. Curiously, almost half of them are monolingual speakers, so do not speak English or French, preferring to live and work within the local Korean community! Thus, if you would like to connect with them on another level and truly understand their culture (ancient and modern), you should start studying Korean in Calgary. At Language Trainers, we specialize in designing personalized language programs to ensure you achieve your goals, even when learning a challenging language like Korean. Contact us today and make it happen!

Why Study Korean in Calgary

Learn Korean for Work: The commercial ties between Korea and Calgary are strong, so studying the language for professional reasons is a smart move. In 2020, Alberta exported over $575 million worth of goods to South Korea, ranking it as the province’s fifth-best trade partner in terms of exports, with the top commercialized products being canola oil, wood pulp, pig meat and petroleum. If you work in any fields that deal with these resources, then learning some Korean will allow you to grow your business or take advantage of promotion opportunities by working with local and overseas Korean clients. And if you are looking for a new job in Calgary, you will be happy to know many Korean companies have headquarters in the city and are always looking for bilingual speakers, such as Samsung, LG and Kia. Knowing Korean, then, will help you stand out beside competing candidates when applying for a position in these companies.

Learn Korean for Social: It is also possible for you to make use of your new Korean skills in a social context by joining one of the many meet-up groups available in Calgary, such as the Calgary Korean Language Meetup. This is a language exchange group of friendly people who get together at least once every two weeks to share experiences, make new friends and have some fun together! They welcome all levels of proficiency, so you can join them even if you are just starting out with us at Language Trainers. Their meetings usually take place at themed restaurants, such as Anju Restaurant on 17 Avenue or Bulgogi House on 19 Avenue. Both of them specialize in serving delicious chop chae and bulgogi chicken, which you can order in Korean and surprise your new friends with your speaking skills.

Learn Korean for Culture: Calgary is also full of opportunities for you to experience the ancient Korean culture. For example, you can take part in the annual Calgary Korean Day Festival that, since 2003, has been held every August. This festival is open to anyone who wishes to broaden their understanding of the Korean culture while promoting a joyful sense of multiculturalism and diverse community in Calgary. Visitors can enjoy Korean food, K-pop contests, Korean martial arts demonstrations, various other performances, face painting and play areas. You can also partake in the many events organized by the Calgary Korean Association on Farrell Road, such as the Cherry Blossom Day. And once you have taken a reasonable amount of lessons with us, you can start following their Facebook page (which is written entirely in Korean!), where the founding members upload relevant information and events for the Korean community. We are sure you will be able to read the page without resorting to the English translation thanks to what you learn in your language course with us.
