The Real Deal About KCC Classes

The Korean Cultural Center (KCC) offers various classes for those who are interested in learning Korean language and culture such as traditional dances, musical instruments, Korean cuisine, and of course, dance classes for all you K-pop fans.

As KCC is getting bolder in its goal to spread Korean awareness and appreciation and with its growing number of students, two more courses (Intensive and Business Korean) were added to the Basic and Elementary Korean to complete the language classes.

Romel of Team Jjangnim was able to take a few classes in KCC. Curious about how the classes are in KCC? Then read on.

My language class experience 🙂
The Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines offers different levels of language classes from Basic, Elementary 1 & 2, Intermediate, Intensive and Business Classes.

I, myself enrolled for Elementary 1 class. It was a fun learning experience to be with your classmates who also love Korean drama, K-pop, and Korean culture.

Romel Language Class

My Korean teacher was very friendly and was eager to teach us the Korean language. I can still remember how when my teacher asked something and I was not sure how to answer it, I always answered it by “Hwaiting” ㅋㅋ ~ The best thing about it is that they use a friendly, light, and fun teaching methods in order for the students to understand.

(Apart from learning elementary-level Korean,) I made a lot of friends that I still hang out with until now.

My Korean Culture Experience ^_^
Aside from language classes, KCC also offers Korean culture classes such as Samulnori (Traditional Percussion), Taekwondo, Traditional Dance, Gayageum (Zither-String Instrument), and I know you will love to hear it that KCC also has a K-pop dance class with Dasuri Choi as the dance instructor. KCC also has K-pop Singing and Korean Cooking (Hansik) classes.

Because of my enthusiasm in Korean culture, I enrolled in the Samulnori (Drums) and Gayageum (String) classes.

Samulnori Class
If you love drums or you want to try playing a new instrument, then you should try KCC’s Samulnori class. In this class, you can play four instruments like kwaenggari, janggu, jing and buk. These four instruments represent nature and it’s exciting to play these instruments as they produce different vibes of sound. I really enjoyed attending this class and jamming with other students. Though the class is only once a week (bitin, haha :P) I recommend this class for its exciting, fun, and relaxing form of music 🙂

Gayageum Class
I also enrolled in the Gayageum class which is a zither-like instrument. It was a challenge for me since I already forgot how to read notes and I haven’t played the guitar for a long time :/ The funny thing was I put a mark (note) on every string so I can easily follow my music sheets. :)))))

Yes, KCC does have a K-pop Dance Class with Teacher Dasuri. =)))

And if you tried all of it, you can also enroll in their Traditional Dance Class, K-pop Singing, and Cooking Class. Who knows, your mom or your family members might enroll too ㅋㅋㅋ

Also at the end of the term, both language and culture class students will have their chance of having a class presentation along with other students! xD
