Diplomatic and cultural ties between South Korea and Hungary were established more than 25 years ago. In 1988, the Department of Hungarian Studies was created at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. Since its creation, this major workshop of Hungarian studies has become one of the most important supporters and symbols of friendly relations between the two countries. In 2014, I became a member of this prominent department, where I teach Hungarian language and culture in the BA programme.

Although I represent and teach my own culture and language, I have realized that it is essential to advance my knowledge in Korean culture, education and language as well. During the past years, I needed to shape and improve my methodology based on my knowledge of the students’ learning habits and strategies that are rooted in their cultural background. Additionally, I had to examine and understand their goals and possibilities as well to make my classes more useful.

In this short study, I summarize some of the methodological changes and ideas that I invented in order to develop an efficient and useful teaching plan and an interesting syllabus that support Korean students in second language acquisition.
