Korean in Dallas
Korean is one of the most-spoken languages in the world, with more than 75 million speakers according to Ethnologue, and many of them live in Dallas. The city has the largest Korean community in Texas (with over 80,000 Korean speakers, according to the 2011 census) and this shows in the huge Koreatown that can be found in the city. In the early ’80s, a handful of Korean-owned wholesale businesses settled on what would eventually be named Koreatown or Little Seoul. Around them sprang businesses that belong to the Korean community: Korean banks and insurance brokers, nail salons, restaurants, grocers, and even a newspaper. Start learning Korean today and broaden your social, professional and cultural horizons in Dallas. Contact us at Language Trainers and we will design a course tailored to your needs and busy schedule.
Why Study Korean in Dallas
For Work: Take Korean lessons in Dallas and improve your job prospects in the city. The USA has strong business ties to South Korea, with total exports of agricultural products to Korea totaling $8.3 billion in 2018. To encourage business partnerships, many institutions, such as the Korean American Coalition - DFW chapter on Harry Hines Boulevard, organize monthly events and conferences. This is a non-partisan, non-profit organization established in 2004 and helps Korean entrepreneurs establish their companies in the USA and vice-versa. Another institution that can help you if you want to establish your own business abroad is the Greater Dallas Korean American Chamber of Commerce on Corinth Street, founded in 1976 as a resource for those who want to know more about the Korean market.
For Culture: You will also be able to experience this ancient culture without ever leaving Dallas. For example, the Korean Society of Dallas and the Korean American Development Foundation annually host the Korean Festival of Dallas at the Carrollton Asian Town Plaza. This event highlights Korean culture and includes art, food, and entertainment. Don’t miss out on this very popular festival (more than 50,000 people attended in 2019!) and connect with this community on a whole new level by using your new Korean skills! Also, if you like Korean music, you should take part in the monthly K Pop Together festival, organized by institutions like K-pop Dallas. This is a free festival filled with food, music, performances, family activities, and more. You can enjoy guest performances from K-pop artists such as Chic Angel and Weki Meki and sing along to the lively K-Pop tunes with a flawless Korean pronunciation.
For Social: In case you would like to practice Korean while making new friends in the area, you will find some language exchange groups where you can do this. The most popular one is the Dallas Korean-English Meetup, a group that welcomes anyone with an interest in learning more about the Korean language and culture, regardless of their level or age. They organize Sunday afternoon study sessions, as well as monthly events to socialize at dinners, happy hours, holidays, and special occasions. Take advantage of this opportunity to improve your Korean speaking and listening skills while making friends along the way!
