One of the toughest parts of studying abroad in Korea is finding an accommodation because there is not much information out there and it is tough to match your schedule with the contract time period.
Not only that, there are many problems that occur such as sanitation problems, expensive fees, rooms that are too small, etc. which give foreigners a bad impression about Korea. To solve these problems, starting from 2005, Best Friend decided to arrange accommodation for foreigners in “one-room apartments, mini-studio apartment, and homestay.” Best Friend Korean Language School has 3 million members all over the world and is associated with over 100 global companies.
