In June 2020, the King Sejong Institute Foundation, a public organization under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea, designated the Korean Culture and Education Association in Belgium as the King Sejong Institute Brussels for disseminating the Korean language and culture.
The King Sejong Institute Foundation supports the operation of 213 King Sejong Institutes in 76 countries worldwide. As a part of Korean language education programs, a standard Korean language curriculum and educational textbooks & materials are developed and distributed by the King Sejong Institute Foundation. Nuri-Sejong Hakdang, an online learning platform, is in charge of spreading Korean language learning apps. Continuous training courses & seminars are regularly organized to improve teaching methods and skills of Korean language teachers and cultural lectures on different subjects are designed to offer a unique Korean culture experience for locals.
