At Sogang University's Korean Language Education Center, there are four full time teachers and about thirty salary earning teachers. They fulfill a crucial role in teaching Korean, so both their sense of responsibility and their enthusiasm are very high. All teachers have distinguishing achievements in their respective fields of either Korean language or general Korean studies and, through regular meetings and workshops, keep in touch with the latest methods of classroom instruction. Instructors also oversee the student's attendance records, tests, and so on and so forth. In addition, instructors are available to counsel students confronting problems stemming from their studies or daily life in Korea.
