South Korea is home to one of the world's largest and most buzzy cities (Seoul), rocky mountain peaks like Bukhansan and Seoraksan, three coasts of swimmable beaches, Bulguksa and other centuries-old Buddhist mountain temples, and a cultural history that stretches back thousands and thousands of years.
Today, this small East Asian nation of 50 million has a unique relationship with the English-speaking world — it's a go-to destination for nearly everything, not just language teaching.
