In partnership with the King Sejong Institute, Bahrain Polytechnic concluded the “Discover Korea” programme which aimed to introduce the Korean language and culture to Bahrain. The programme commenced on the 15th of July and concluded on 21st of August 2019.
The programme was introduced with the aim of spreading the Korean language and culture through a series of introductory classes, which included day to day actions such as introducing one’s self, shopping, and ordering food. Additionally, the learners were introduced to the Korean tea ceremony, learned to make a Korean snack, and were engaged in traditional Korean games, and handcrafts.
The programme comes as part of Bahrain Polytechnic’s commitment to employability and community education in an aim to empower Bahraini’s with necessary knowledge and skills to best serve them in the future.
The initiative is also in line with the vision of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to spread the Korean language and culture in the Kingdom of Bahrain through the King Sejong Institute, and amongst its plans is to offer Korean as part of the curriculum at Bahrain Polytechnic, along with the continuation of offering community education programs such as “Discover Korea”.
