Korean in Toronto
Did you know that, according to the 2001 Census, more than 65 thousand Korean speakers live in Toronto, and that most of them only speak their language? As a result, taking Korean lessons will let you communicate with this growing community, broaden your professional horizons and make the most out of your trips to Korea. Contact us at Language Trainers so we can start designing a course tailored to your skills and schedule!
Why Study Korean in Toronto
For Work: If you are looking to advance in your career in Toronto, learning Korean will open up new professional opportunities. The Korean Chamber of Business on Steeles Ave, for example, is a not-for-profit organization that has been representing Korean Canadian business owners in the area since 2001. This institution hosts events that welcome prominent members of the Korean-Canadian community, business people and politicians. This is a great opportunity for networking and put your Korean skills into use! Also, many companies in Toronto are looking for bilingual speakers to join their teams, which means that learning Korean will give you an advantage over other candidates who don’t know the language. Some of these companies are LG Electronics, Morneau Shepell and Air Canada. This airline established its headquarters in Toronto in 2016, and it added Toronto-Seoul non-stop flights to their international network. In a little over 13 hours, you will be admiring their ancient monuments and speaking in Korean using the skills you acquire with Language Trainers!
For Culture: If you are more interested in knowing about Korean culture, you will be glad to know that Toronto offers a lot of opportunities for doing so. Music lovers, for example, can watch their favorite K-pop bands such as JYPE & TME’s BOY STORY at events organized by the Korean-Canadian Cultural Association on Leslie Street. Another event that celebrates Korean culture is the Lunar New Year Festival. Every guest has to wear a traditional costume that includes Hanbok if they want to join the event. An estimated 50,000 people attended in 2018 and the numbers are expected to grow in the future. And don’t miss the Korean Harvest Festival, the biggest one in Canada! Established in 2001, guests of all ages can attend this event and enjoy over twenty live performances such as Tae Kwon Do, dance and drumming, and the popular masked singer competition. Why not attend these interesting cultural events and impress the attendees with the Korean pronunciation you learn in your lessons with us?
For Social and Food: Those who want to develop their social skills while practising their Korean can join the Toronto Korean-English Exchange. This group has almost 500 members who meet to speak in Korean and English in a fun environment. And if you are looking to share some traditional food with friends, you should consider visiting Cho Sun Ok on Yonge St. This restaurant serves homemade Korean food and is best known for their naengmyeon, a delicious dish which originated in North Korea. Another great option is Oddseoul, a new late-night eatery on Ossington Avenue offering dishes such as Bulgogi Cheesesteak. Their menus are written in Korean, so you can go and see how much vocabulary you learn in your language course.
