Did you know that there are skill courses offered free to all migrants in Korea? Yup, you read it right! A lot of migrant centers in Korea offers not only counseling or helping foreigners with labor problems.
Significantly, they also furnish free skills and business related classes that will help migrants cope up with the locals and acquire skills as well while working.
YGMC or Yangcheon Global Migrants Center in Seoul is one of those center. I say as a student of this center, staffs are so welcoming and with friendly spirit.
Classes available are immensely useful as aces. The center’s premises houses a complete instructional materials that surely ensures learning and I’m telling you teacher’s are great too!
Yangcheon has two semesters in a year. First sem runs from February to July and August till January. For second semester, which is about to start on August 20, 2017, registration is ongoing. What you need to bring is just your Alien Registration Card (ARC) only.
Courses offered: Korean Cooking/Barista/Korean Language/Graphics/Photography and Video/Nail Art and Computer repair.
Each classes are held for 2 hours every Sunday. However, if you wish to do the class on weekdays they do have. You can ask the staff about the schedule.
Upon completion the center holds a graduation program and certificates are given. However, only those students with no more than four (4) absences will be recognized. So, once you’re enrolled make sure you’ll not have those absences to pass the class.
