Yonhap News Agency, Seoul, November 25th. The Sejong Institute Foundation of South Korea stated on the 25th that its "Metaverse Sejong Institute Campus" (ksif.zep.site) will be launched soon, which will further facilitate foreigners to communicate and learn in Korean in the virtual space.
This virtual space consists of Korean attractions such as Hangang Park, Gwangjang Market, Dongdaemun, and Seowon Village. Students can set their own avatars in the space, chat freely or have video conversations with users from various countries. You can also learn Korean conversations suitable for the context such as sports, shopping, and medical treatment through the artificial intelligence (AI) installed in each attraction.
According to reports, the Metaverse Campus will add the "Metaverse Korean Conversation" course based on the offline "Sejong Korean Conversation" teaching mode of Sejong Academy, so that students can practice conversation intensively. The consortium will also hold a mixed traditional concert on the Metaverse campus in the afternoon, and carry out activities such as inviting friends to visit by campus teachers and students.
The Metaverse Campus will be in trial operation by the end of the year, and the service will be officially launched next year. During the trial operation period, foreign students will be provided with a wealth of content to experience Korean culture, such as introducing Korean food delivery culture, sauna rooms, traditional music games, and throwing games.
According to the foundation, the Metaverse Campus launched following the 244 offline Sejong Institutes and online Sejong Institutes in 84 countries will help foreigners learn Korean language and Korean culture more easily. (Finish)
