1.    Who is ACOPIA School?

 

ACOPIA School is a dance/vocal academy run under the ACOPIA Entertainment division. This division, specialized in K-POP activities, is also hosting one-week K-POP Training Camps 5 times a year and provides intensive lessons for those who wish to take Auditions in famous Entertainment companies.

 

 

At ACOPIA School, you will learn about Korean culture, have Korean lessons, singing lessons, dancing lessons and Korean cooking lessons. It will also be an opportunity to meet with other international students who share the same passion for Korea as you.

 

"What will I do if I apply for ACOPIA Training Program?"

 

  

1.    Korean Group lessons

 

Classes are divided into beginner and intermediate levels. Depending on your level, you will be allocated to one of the two groups, and you will learn from basic Korean, such as how to read Korean, to daily conversational level.

The Korean proficiency (beginner or intermediate) will be decided by your instructor.

 

2.    Korean one on one lesson

 

Review any points you did not understand in a group lesson, practice your conversational skills with your teacher and take classes according to your specific needs.

 

3.    K-POP Dance / Vocal Lesson (K-POP Course)

 

During K-POP dancing and singing lessons, you will learn the latest and hottest K-POP dances and songs. Both classes will each be held twice or thrice a week depending on your level.

 

You will be given practice for Korean pronunciation and will learn the meaning of lyrics.

 

4.    Audition support

 

If an audition organized by ACOPIA is held during your study abroad, you can participate for free. Several foreign students have been invited from the Entertainment office until now! We will provide support and other audition information if you decide to take the auditions.
