Mannam Korean Speech Contest!


Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 10:00


Event Type: 



What if mothers weren't with us, when we couldn't do anything by ourselves?

Mothers, they hug and carry us on their backs when we were babies and made us walk and stand for ourselves.
Thanks to mothers who are always with us, the world becomes wide and we call a "Mother tongue" as the language you first learned to speak.
We hope that Korea can be your other homeland, not another country, through Korean language.
Let's get together for the people who learn Korean to look wider at the world.
We MANNAM are a volunteer association which serve not only our local neighborhoods but also help forigners living in Korea to get used to the new surroundings, So we offer free Korean classes, many other community activities and MANNAM gives foreigners and Koreans the chance to use their talents to donate and volunteer.
We MANNAM find things from MANNAM like Free Korean class, that is the Korean language ability of foreigners who have a deep understanding of Korean cultures which is outstandingly excellent.
We think if there is a place that foreigners can show their Korean language expression ability, it would be very useful for foreigners to communicate about Korean cultures because they could not only share Korean skills, but also the diverse experiences in Korea.
So, we are planning to hold The First MANNAM Speaking Contest without divisions like age, academic ability, country and occupation and we believe that it will be a great festival that all foreigners can join and have fun together.
