In order to provide foreign language education and to develop language programs,
the language institute of Hongik University was founded in March, 1997.
We have also provided the information of various language exchange programs
with other educational institutes.
Successful completion of English courses in our language programs is considered
equivalent to the completion of a mandatory undergraduate English courses
at our university.
We offer German, French, Chinese, Japanese, TEPS, Cyber TOEIC, TOEIC, TOEFL
JFKN English, and the postgraduate English program as a substitute for the official
postgraduate English examination.
The language courses are offered during regular semesters with special English
program offered during the summer and winter vacations. The special intensive
English course focuses on practical English conversation and writing skills, and
is taught by the native teachers of Hongik University. The institute also provides
Korean language education for foreigners and the intensive training course for
the future Korean language teachers for foreigners.
