Jeju Special Self-Governing Province and Jeju Global Education City held Korean traditional ettiquette lessons to mark the end of the Korean culture education program on Dec 1.
As part of the festivities, foreigners tried on hanbok, Korean traditional dress, and learned how to bow deeply, in addition to learning tea ceremony manners. The participants left with positive memories and were thankful of the opportunity to learn Korean culture. There was also a small celebration held for the completion of the Korean language class which had been running since September.
The general director of Korea Inter-national School (KIS) said, “This event contributed to promote Korean culture to many foreigners who are living in Jeju Global Education City.” A KIS staff member added, “We will open various cultural and language classes in response to foreigners’ opinions.”
