Extramural programme

The Extramural Programme in Korean language and culture has been running successfully since 2010. The classes are taught by a native-speaker instructor, Mrs Do Eunjee. Two proficiency levels of evening classes are available, for complete beginners and post-beginner learners. These courses are fee-paying (€395 per course, payable in advance) and are designed for the general public. All classes take place in the Arts Building.

Covid-19 update: Whilst we hope that we will be able to offer our extramural courses in classrooms in Trinity from September, we plan to deliver our teaching online if social distancing measures remain in place.

(Please note that registered undergraduate and postgraduate TCD students should apply for the Broad Curriculum and extracurricular Korean modules rather than the extramural programme.)

Korean Extramural Classes

I have been taking Korean Extramural classes at the Trinity Centre for Asian Studies for the past two years. Korean is completely different to any languages I have learned, so it was a bit overwhelming at first. But the course eases you into it slowly and students receive fantastic support from the teacher, Mrs Do Eun Jee. It is also a great class to learn about Korean culture. I went into the course just looking to learn a bit of Korean with a relaxed mind set, viewing it as a new hobby. However, I quickly realised that to make progress, some regular work is needed! I would definitely recommend this course to others. I was also glad that Trinity adapted to the current situation and provided the classes in an online format during lockdown.
