Korean

Korean historians trace the ethnic roots of the Korean people at least as far back as the pottery-using cultures of the fourth and third centuries B.C.  Today, professionals with Korean language qualifications are in great demand in an existing and expanding sector of information and technology.  People from around the world are attracted to traditional and modern Korea, making tourism and education major industries.  Since the mid-1980s, South Korea has been seventh or eighth largest trading partner of the United States, and the U.S. has ranked as South Korea’s first or second trading partner.
