CEBU CITY, Philippines – Following the success of their free Japanese language class offerings, Mayor Tomas Osmeña said that the time has come for the  city government to also teach basic Korean language to interested Cebuanos.

But the city’s latest offering will only be held for a day and will only accommodate the first 50 registrants.

“If you do not make (it to) the cutoff, don’t worry. Other classes will be scheduled soon as well as classes in Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin, and German ,” Osmeña said in a Facebook post at noontime today, March 3.

Recognizing the high demand for Korean language classes, Mayor Osmeña posted an announcement on his Facebook page today that the Cebu City Public Library will be also hosting a free introductory Korean language class that is scheduled next weekend in partnership with WeTalk Inc., a teaching, learning and consultancy firm.

“Walay subtitles imong K-drama?” said the mayor’s post while inviting Cebuanos to register for their Korean language class offering.
