Learning Korean at Osaka Foreign Language, Hotel and Airline College will be useful for future employment and study abroad!

Recently, due to the popularity of K-POP and Korean dramas, more and more people are actively trying to learn Korean! As a result, the number of Japanese people studying abroad in Korea and working for Korean companies is increasing.

On the other hand,

"Shouldn't you be learning English, the universal language, rather than Korean?"

"Chinese language seems to be more in demand..."

I also hear negative opinions such as...


However, Korean is in higher demand than you might imagine. Let's learn with our eyes on your future!

This time, we will introduce "Why you should study Korean at a vocational school."



High demand within Japan

Korean companies are characterized by their strength in the IT, cosmetics, and electronics industries.

Furthermore, there are many Korean companies based in Japan, so there is a possibility that you will be required to understand Korean while staying in Japan.


There may be situations where you use Korean to work both domestically and internationally.



The number of foreign visitors to Japan is extremely large.

Inbound tourism declined for a while due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it has been gradually returning recently.

Did you know that the number of Korean tourists visiting Japan ranks third after China and Taiwan?

There are many places foreign visitors to Japan visit, such as domestic hotels, inns, and airports.

It would be very helpful if you could speak Korean.



You can expand your international perspective

By learning Korean, you can also learn about Korean culture and history, and expand your international perspective.

South Korea is a country very close to Japan, and Japan-Korea relations have been attracting attention in recent years. For young Japanese people, being interested in Korea can also lead to broadening their international horizons. By learning about Korean culture, history, and language, you can deepen your understanding of Korea and acquire the skills to play an active role in the international community.



If you want to learn Korean, come to Osaka Foreign Language, Hotel and Airline College!

Osaka Foreign Language, Hotel and Airline College has a rich curriculum for learning Korean. You can also acquire qualifications that will be useful for future employment or study abroad. You can also learn about the culture and customs you need before studying in Korea.

Recently, there are more opportunities to learn Korean, and learning Korean at a vocational school will be a great advantage for future employment and study abroad. At Osaka Foreign Language, Hotel and Airline College, we aim to help young Japanese people deepen their understanding of Korea through Korean language classes, and to develop human resources who can play an active role in the international community. I would like to learn Korean at Osaka Foreign Language, Hotel and Airline College and help them realize their future dreams and goals.
