There are approximately 1000 Korean language schools in the United States, most of which focus primarily on children. The Korean Language Center of New York was founded to teach Korean language skills suitable for adults for everyday use. KLC teaches the communication skills that can be used in both a casual and professional environment. Our students attend KLC for various purposes ranging from improving their current Korean language skill set, learning Korean as a new language.


In tribute to the King Sejongs creation of the Korean language, we hold a writing contest annually for non-Korean individuals in order to further spread the excellence of Koreas proud culture and language to those non-Koreans who study Korean. The Annual Korean Language Writing Contest for Non-Korean Nationals is intended for individuals residing in the four states of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania and is judged solely based on essay writing.
