Opening party at the new Euljiro Centre with Teaching Centre teachers and students ©

British Council Korea

August 2015

The British Council Teaching Centres decided to separate their centres to specialise in and dedicate their resources to two different age groups: young learners and adults. 

In August 2015, we moved out of the Heungkuk Life Building, which had been our home for over ten years, into a new office along with a Teaching Centre for young learners in the Paichai Jeongdong Building near Seoul City Hall. We also launched a new Teaching Centre for adults in Euljiro and another for young learners in Mok-dong.

We now have two adult centres and three young learner centres altogether including our existing Gangnam myClass Centre and Seocho Young Learner Centre, which enables us to educate our students in better environments and with better facilities. 

In particular, the opening of four different locations – City Hall, Euljiro and Mok-dong Centres and Back Office – on the same day was a record within the British Council network. Our former and present East Asia Regional Directors came to Seoul to celebrate the opening of the new centres.
