The 5th EAKLE Workshop

The 5th European Association for Korean Language Education (EAKLE) workshop was held on April 2–5, 2014, in Venice, Italy. The gathering included the participation of some 60 Korean-language professors from 32 universities in 21 European countries-including SOAS at the University of London, Paris Diderot University, and University of Helsinki in Finland-to discuss Korean instructional methods that take into account the local particularities of various European regions. They also engaged in enthusiastic discussions on ways to take advantage of growing interest in the Korean language and Korean Studies as a result of the Korean Wave, along with ideas for using this trend to develop Korea-related departments. EAKLE was founded in 2007 as a framework for Korean language educators in Europe to share teaching methods, exchange information, and build cooperative networks. Meetings have since been held on an biannual basis with support from the Korea Foundation, for the purpose of steadily upgrading Korean language education in Europe.
