South Korea, also known as the "Land of the Morning Calm," nestled between China and Japan, has achieved the incredible feat and true economic miracle of transitioning from a third-world country to a highly industrialized nation that has successfully embraced technology and economic globalization. This Far East country has successfully developed close contacts with the West and has become a true tourist destination today. In South Korea, delight and immersion await you at every street corner, as well as in colorful landscapes shaped by a 70% mountainous backdrop. As a land of water and greenery, the Korean peninsula ventures into the Sea of China and has never forgotten its traditions, which can be found in megacities like Seoul, ports like Busan, as well as in the simplicity of the countryside or Buddhist monasteries. Those who choose South Korea for their next linguistic stay will not miss visiting Seoul's 5 Grand Palaces, as well as discovering the Haiensa Temple in the south, which houses a copy of Buddhist scriptures, or Gyeongju, the capital of Silla, the first unified kingdom of Korea, which has preserved the splendor of its history with majestic royal tombs buried beneath impressive tumuli.
In recent years, South Korea, a country of contrasts, has become a highly sought-after destination for linguistic stays. Loved by students who wish to completely change their surroundings and immerse themselves in a new culture, South Korea has everything to charm you. A linguistic stay in Korea in a completely unfamiliar environment will teach you a lot about yourself, your strengths, and weaknesses, allowing you to gain independence and maturity. If you don't have a clear idea about your future, meeting other students on the other side of the world will certainly open up new horizons and help you return with a clearer idea of the next steps in your professional career.
