The Embassy of the Republic of Korea is pleased to announce the establishment of the Korea Corner at the Center for Language Learning (CLL) of the University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine Campus, which is the first of its kind in Trinidad and Tobago.
The Korea Corner is an educational and cultural resource center that aims to enhance cultural exchanges between the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago through teaching and the promotion of Korean culture. The Korea Corner allows a greater exposure to Korean culture and increased access to materials about Korea.
At the Corner, students and general public can immerse themselves in Korean culture through various audio, visual and textual contents. Hundreds of Korean novels and poetry books shelved in the Corner offer an opportunity for Trinidadians to see hidden sides of Korean society, learn about unknown history, and feel the deeper meaning of its philosophy. Visitors can also enjoy a wide variety of Korean films and TV series by using modern technology that is well equipped within the venue. Besides books, films, and TV series, the Korea Corner provides educational resources for persons who intend to learn the Korean language.
The Korea Corner is located on the second floor of the Center for Language Learning (CLL) within the University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine Campus and is open from Monday to Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Embassy of the Republic of Korea hopes that the establishment of this Korea Corner will encourage and strengthen cultural exchange and co-operation between our two peoples of Korea and Trinidad and Tobago, further contributing to our friendly and cooperative relationship in the years to come.
