Korea National Maritime Museum


2020년 1월 3일 부산 렉시스 학생들은 부산국립해양박물관에 다녀왔어요.

국립해양박물관은 해양문화와 해양산업의 발전을 위한 공간이에요. 그래서 바다와 관련된 다양한 유물과 자료를 전시하고 있어요.

먼저 바다에 없어서는 안 될 등대에 관한 전시를 살펴보았어요. 등대의 기원과 역사에 대해 공부하고 전 세계의 다양한 등대 사진을 봤어요. 학생들의 나라에 있는 등대는 어떤 모습인지 생각하는 시간도 가졌어요.

박물관에는 작은 수족관도 있었어요. 다양한 물고기를 구경하며 사진을 찍었어요.


그리고 바다에 있는 아름다운 산호와 신기한 해양 생물을 관찰했어요.

한국은 옛날부터 어떤 배를 타고 다녔고, 배의 모습은 어떤지 자세히 볼 수 있었어요. 커다란 배를 바로 눈 앞에서 보니 신기했어요. 배 모형들을 자세히 관찰하며 과거 한국인들이 배를 타는 모습을 상상해 보았어요.

과거 한국은 어떤 해양 역사를 가지고 있는지, 바다와 관련된 유명한 인물은 누가 있는지 공부했어요. 그리고 바다에서 어떻게 어업을 해왔는지 살펴보고 다양한 도구를 관찰했어요.

또 현재는 한국의 해양산업이 얼마나 발전했는지 알 수 있었어요. 과거부터 현재까지 다양한 사진과 자료, 모형들이 있어서 해양 역사에 대해 재미있게 공부했어요.

국립해양박물관은 바다 바로 옆에 있어서 밖으로 나가면 탁 트인 바다를 볼 수 있어요. 바다 위에는 다양한 선박들이 있고, 오륙도도 있어서 전망이 정말 좋았어요.


한국의 해양 역사와 문화, 인물을 공부하고 다양한 해양 생물들을 볼 수 있어서 즐거웠어요. 바다도 보고 바다에 대해 공부도 하는 유익한 시간이었습니다~

여러분도 부산에 오면 꼭 국립해양박물관에 가보세요!

Lexis Busan 2020 Monthly Activities

Our Monthly Activities are updated on a monthly basis and you will be able to find the updated calendars here on our Facebook page.

Below is a quick rundown of the activities that we offer and an explanation of what they are:

On Mondays, we run Seomyeon City Tour specifically for our new weekly intake students as a mean to introduce Seomyeon and to help them familiar themselves with the area surrounding school.

On Tuesdays, we run Lexis Help Desk to help you with your life in Korea, be it for flight bookings, concert ticket reservations, or any enquiries you may have about applying for your Alien Registration Card (ARC), opening a bank account, getting a prepaid mobile SIM Card… whatever your concern is, we are there to help you!

Wednesdays are meant for social activities whereby we run Lexis Meet Up bi-monthly on the 2nd and 4th week of the month.

Lexis Meet Up

Lexis Meet Up is a language exchange event that we have set up and have running for a couple of years now. This social event brings together both our International students as well as local Korean students together – this is a great chance not only to meet and befriend new friends but also practice your speaking/listening skills with the native speakers.

On Fridays fun days, we offer our Lexis Busan students the choice to pick from 2 different options!

OPTION 1: K-Class

This option would be most suited for students are who keen on learning more about our Korean culture. Weekly activities would range from:

  • Korean Kitchen, held within the school facilities, we will be introducing Korean food and ingredients to our students. This is a hands-on class where you will get to learn how to make a Korean dish! This option class is offered to Intensive Korean 25 students at no additional cost, whereas students from Intensive Korean 15 course would be required to pay a small fee of KRW5,000 to participate.

Korean Kitchen

  • Korean Culture, which could range from Korean traditional calligraphy class, Korean traditional hanbok wearing experience, Korean traditional hanji craft class, Korean pottery making class. Majority of this option classes would be offered to Intensive Korean 25 students at no additional cost, except for classes conducted outside of school such as Korean Calligraphy at KRW7,000 and Korean pottery making class at KRW10,000. Students from Intensive Korean 15 course would be required to pay a fee ranging from KRW5,000 to KRW15,000 depending on the class, should they wish to participate.

Korean Pottery Class

  • K-Pop Dance, which has been a very popular activity amongst our young K-pop fans! This class is conducted in a dance studio with a choreographer. There is a cost of KRW10,000 for Intensive Korean 25 students and a cost of KRW15,000 for Intensive Korean 15 students respectively. 


  • K-Pop & K-Drama + Native Korean or Study Group on rotations.


OPTION 2: Excursions

The second option would be excursions to various destinations, to introduce a glimpse of Busan to our students. Whilst there are some destinations that offer free entrance fee, there may be certain attractions that would incur an entrance fee which will be borne by the student.

And of course, we always wrap up our month with a bang! On the last Friday of every month, we hold a dinner party which we have dubbed as ‘Lexis Student Night’ gathering both our international and Korean students.


Our Student Nights have been known as the legendary night of bonding as it involves good food, beer and soju. This is a night not to be missed! 😉

We hope you’re as excited as we are about our activities – we surely can’t wait to share not only the Korean language but also our Korean history, culture and tradition with you. So please do join us and be a part of these activities! See you there!
