Korean Cultural Centre India (KCCI) has signed an MOU with University of Delhi on opening and operation of Korean language courses at Motilal Nehru College at Delhi University’s South Campus, and will run a 12-week course from February 4, 2023. Starting with the beginner level of Korean language classes, the class will be further expanded according to the responses of students.
Hwang Il Yong, Director KCCI said, “We thank Delhi University officials for giving us the opportunity to open and operate Korean language classes at Delhi University, India’s most prestigious and largest national university, and we are honoured to be able to spread Korean language and culture at India’s top university. We would like to repay our gratitude by providing systematic and high-quality Korean language education that is befitting with the standards of Delhi University.”
Dr. Ravindra, a professor of history at the University of Delhi’s Motilal Nehru College, said he became interested in Korea because of his family’s love for Korean dramas and decided to participate in Korean language classes in anticipation of a chance to give a lecture on Indian history in Korea. Aradhara Vashistha, a student at the university, said, “Korean has become an important language in the world, along with the growing influence of Korea’s rapidly growing economy, geopolitical position, and culture. From a future-oriented perspective, I thought learning Korean language skills would be a good opportunity, so I joined the class.”
