Korean in Halifax, NS

Nova Scotia is one of the most multicultural provinces in Canada, and Halifax is no exception. According to Statistics Canada, the number of immigrants moving to the city is expected to continue to rise over the next 20 years to the point that one in 10 Haligonians will have been born in a different country. Today, it is home to thousands of Asian expats, especially Chinese and Korean people. According to the 2011 census, more than 1,000 Koreans live in Halifax, and most of them only speak their native language. So, if you would like to connect with this growing community, take up higher education in Korean and/or look for a new, international job, you should consider taking Korean lessons in Halifax. Contact us today and make it happen!


Why Study Korean in Halifax

For Social: There are many events in Halifax that you can attend to meet new like-minded people while putting your Korean to use. For example, you can go to Song’s Korean Restaurant on Quinpool Road, where you can experience quality Korean food while listening to traditional Korean music. You will be able to enjoy the songs and understand the lyrics while ordering delicious food using your new language skills! Meanwhile, those who love dance can go to the House of Eights Dance Studio on Barrington Street. They even have classes for K-POP (Korean Pop) enthusiasts and incorporate high-intensity movement as you dance along to the songs of BTS, Girls’ Generation, GOT7 and more! You will learn basic techniques and choreography as each section of the dance is broken down while getting to know new friends who love K-Pop as much as you do!

For Work and Studies: Learning Korean in Halifax will help you take advantage of many professional opportunities in the city. Companies such as Retik, Gangnam Korea Halifax and NTT Data Services are always looking for Korean bilingual speakers to add to their teams. And those who would like to pursue higher education in Korean can do so in Halifax, too. Dalhousie University, for example, offers Asian Studies, which allow you to explore the people and culture of Korea and other Asian countries while giving you the opportunity to learn the language.

For Culture: There are many instances of Korean culture around the city, so you can experience it without ever leaving Halifax! For example, every September you can join the Nova Scotia Multicultural Festival at the Halifax Seaport, which plays host to a variety of flavours and fashions from around the world and gives a taste of Halifax’s growing diversity. You can find a lot of delicious Korean dishes and shows, including traditional Korean performances, Taekwondo demonstrations and cover song competitions, so learn the language beforehand and enjoy this event on a whole new level! If you are religious, you can attend the Halifax Korean Church services, delivered by Korean priests entirely in their native language. And once you have taken a reasonable amount of classes with us, you can start following the Korean Association of Nova Scotia’s website, entirely written in Korean, to keep on developing your reading skills in this fascinating language!
