The Intensive Korean 25 Course is a full time course, suitable for non-native overseas students who are aiming to progress rapidly. The curriculum enables students to learn Korean in a fast yet fun way, covering all speaking, listening, reading and writing aspects. In addition to the morning core classes, the Intensive Korean 25 program includes a skills-focussed afternoon program designed to optimize language proficiency. With a range of options to select from in each of the key language skills sets, the afternoon class allows students to extend their learning experience to address key areas of interest. In addition to attending classes, you will require dedicated time to self-study. You are expected to revise the materials covered in class and also complete the homework given. This will ensure that your language proficiency accelerates regardless of your stay duration.
There are 7 levels from Foundation to Advanced. This class is offered Monday to Friday from 9am-3:30pm. There are also 9 “afternoon option” classes, like conversation, TOPIK preparation, K-Drama, breaking news dictation, job club, Korean etiquette class, Korean kitchen, book club, and even K-POP.
The Intensive Korean 15 Course is a part time course, suitable for non-native overseas students who are aiming to learn the Korean language based on a leisure interest. Students are expected to revise materials covered in class and also complete the homework given. This will ensure that your language proficiency accelerates regardless of your stay duration. The Intensive Korean 15 course covers only Lexis’s core curriculum with a syllabus designed to accelerate all your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills within a short period of time.
There are 7 levels from Foundation to Advanced. This class is offered Monday to Friday from 9am-12:15pm.
The TOPIK class is a comprehensive preparation class for the Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK) and a good choice for students who want to be admitted to Korean universities, have a longer-term visa, or check their own Korean abilities. At Lexis, you will be taught by a dedicated and experienced TOPIK exam preparation teacher. You can improve your reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening skills, take practice tests using past exam papers, with answer guides and teacher feedback, and improve your Korean language whilst working towards an internationally recognized qualification.
There are 5 levels that correspond with TOPIK levels. This class is offered Monday to Friday from 9am-3:30pm.
This weekend class is for office workers or students who would prefer a slower paced language study experience. There are 7 levels from Foundation to Advanced. This class is offered on Sundays from 9am-12:15pm.
This is a one to one intensive lesson between a teacher and a student, taught either as a stand-alone program or as an addition to the Intensive classes for those who require additional support. This program is recommended for students who are not able to attend regular Intensive classes or prefer individual private attention. Teachers are assigned to students based upon their specific interests and a tailored class curriculum is made to target your specific interests and personal goals. Classes are typically two hours in duration, but alternative arrangements can be made depending on the student’s preference. Students may wish to form their own schedule to best suit their personal needs. After deciding on which days and time of the week to meet, please consult with Lexis to finalize the schedule.
This program is a unique opportunity for teens from all over the world to learn the Korean language while experiencing the local lifestyle and cultural immersion during their stay in South Korea.

This program can be from 1-4 weeks long.
Lexis Korea’s pathway program is all about options. Their pathway program is designed to offer an alternate streamlined path into an undergraduate or postgraduate degree program in South Korea.

Their program is in partnership with Konkuk University, Hanyang University, and Dankook University, which alleviates the need for the TOPIK exam.
