Yangcheon Global Migrants Center has so much to offer to migrants in Korea. As this center is continuously flooded with migrants desiring to learn new skills, it steadily maintains its friendly and homey relationship with each and everyone. Trust me, the Korean staff and teachers are the nicest! I’d bèen in the center for a year of schooling and I did had a great time. Not only I learned a lot from my Korean class, Barista and cooking but I of course take pleasure on meeting new friends, the best part when you socialize a bit!
