Established in 1969, the Korean Language Education Center at Seoul National University aims at teaching Korean language and culture to international students and overseas Koreans intending to learn Korean language as a foreign language or their second language so that they can have a good command of Korean and understand Korea correctly.

The KLEC promotes the optimal teaching method for each student to improve their Korean conversational skills.
