On February 2, 2005, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Finance created the Changnyeong Special District for Foreign Language Education as a key part of the government’s national strategy to prepare students for a globalized world. Changnyeong English Village, as part of this initiative, gives students the opportunity to experience what life is like overseas without actually going abroad. The English Village provides students with a strong foundation in English education and global cultural understanding through its language courses in an immersive, English-speaking environment, motivating and inspiring learners while simultaneously reducing the financial burdens of private education.
Changnyeong English Village was created in recognition of the fact that our English proficiency determines the competitiveness of our nation. Public funding is provided for project operations by the New Revitalization campaign in order to ensure the success of this innovative project in its mission of cultivating 21st century global talent.
