I’ve been researching the possibility of coming to Korea to study Korean. I know some local universities have short term programs which start at certain times of the year. Are there any programs where you could study all year. In western cultures such the government will only fund or loan you money to study at a recognized university.
Some other questions:
1) Do you know of any good places to stay inexpensively while earning about the culture and studying “outside of the normal classroom environment”?
2) What other things can one do in Korea (besides teaching English) to support a stay focused on studying Korean seriously?
