We organize our study trips to Korea once a year. Led by our very own principal tutors-turn-tour guides, the ezSAM Korean Study trip is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the sights and culture of Korea (including of course eating and drinking), and immerse in Korean language learning.
Trips are planned in consultation with participants over several meeting sessions, with accommodation and transport booked through our ezSAM contacts in Korea, ensuring that our students get the best value for money, and of course, memories to last for a long time.
We like to say, with ezSAM, we bring Korea to you. Sometimes, we simply bring you there.

Check out what the students and tutors did this year at our Facebook page.
ezSAM 2016 Korea Study Tour, Jeju Island (27 Feb – 1 Mar 2016)
The 4th edition of ezSAM’s signature activity took our students and tutors to the Hawaii of the East, Jeju Island!
There, they trekked snow-covered mountains, explored caves in their cruise boat, had great food and drinks and absorbed the beautiful scenery that Jeju had to throw at them.

ezSAM 2015 Korea Study Tour, Gyeongju (29 March 2015)
The 3rd edition of the ezSAM study trip brought our ezSAM students and staff to Gyeongju on 29th March 2015. We visited Gyeongju national museum, Cheonmachong, Gyochon town, Cheomseongdae and Anapji. Check out our exploits here on ezSAM Facebook.
ezSAM 2014 Korea Study Tour, Jeju Island (5-8 Oct 2014)
16 ezSAM students joined our ezSAM tutors for four days of full immersion into the Korean culture in Jeju Island – the 2nd ezSAM Korean Study Tour! Guided by our able tutors, the students were able to savour the traditional cuisines, customs, sights and sound that Korea has to offer. And of course, they had a fun time putting their Korean to full use in specially designed ezSAM games and activities, as well as through daily drills.
ezSAM 2013 Korea Study Tour, Seoul/Gangwon-do (14 – 18 Oct)
The inaugural study tour to Gangwon-do stands testimony to ezsam’s philosophy that learning korean is, beyond literacy skills, a cultural experience. Customary practices surrounding korean dining and drinking, and enacting korean goodwill are what textbooks alone cannot efficiently impart. Using language in authentic communicative situations is what classroom lessons cannot sufficiently accomplish. These I’m glad the study tour achieved. Throughout the trip, the principal lecturers (together with their unofficial teaching assistant, the bus captain) showed commitment to professionalism and care for the students. May I congratulate Ms Seo and Ms Yom on the success of their inaugural study tour, and wish that future tours continue to enliven learning and invigorate minds. – Jonathan T.
