South Korea - SDA Language School

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20.

We, the missionary teachers and staff of SDA Language School in Korea, resolve to share our growing love for this Gospel with the people of Korea and to make disciples among them.

Samyook SDA Language School, also known as SDA Education, operates under the supervision of the Korean Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in Seoul, Korea, part of the Northern Asia-Pacific Division. The SDA Language School is well known as one of the leading language institutes in Korea. We have gained the respect of the people in Korea because of the dedication, honesty and outstanding qualifications of our mission-minded native English speaking teachers who carry out our systematic class procedures and implement effective methods of teaching. 

Today, we have 12 branches throughout Korea. We have about 50 native English speaking teachers, who not only teach English, but also enjoy sharing the gospel of Jesus with their students while exchanging and experiencing eastern cultures.
