The Samarkand State Institute of Foreign Languages trains the qualified specialists on nine majors, the Narodnoye slovo newspaper reported.

At the moment, nearly 2400 young men and women attend the Institute. They study in-depth more than ten foreign languages, including English, French, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Arabic. In particular, more than 200 students learn the Korean language at the College of Oriental Philology and Translation, according to the newspaper.

“This language is being taught since the early days of establishment of the Institute,” the Dean of the College Khamrokul Buriev said, “for over the past period the hundreds of young men and women have received diplomas on this major. The teachers from South Korea are much contributing to training the students, who learn the Korean language and literature, culture and traditions of this nation.”

KOICA, the Korean International Cooperation Agency, and the Korean Foundation render assistance in terms of providing the students at the Institute with study literature, textbooks and modern information tools, as much as increasing the qualification of teachers in the Republic of Korea.

“I have already been living in Samarkand for the second year and I teach Korean to the students,” Ru Hi-ju, the teacher of Korean, said. “I myself have learnt to speak Uzbek. Having seen how the Uzbek youth treats with respect the teachers, parents and the elderly I have felt to what extent our spiritual values are close. This is especially seen in holding various family events, holidays and wedding parties.”
