From 2019, Ha Long University officially opened the Korean Language department. Regarding the important role of foreign language learning, Director of the KF Foundation Office in Hanoi Choi Jaejin believed that universities are the agencies that support the development of Korean studies, a typical agency for Korean studies.
"Recently, KF worked with Ha Long university to bring a native-speaking professor to teach Korean language. In addition, KF also supports the Korea Corner project so that young people can learn more about Korean culture," said the Korean director.
