Abstract
This study aims to address current issues that Korean language education communities in Australasia are facing and to explore the best workable strategies that can be helpful in overcoming problems and advancing the profile of Korean language education in the region. The study focuses on four areas: 1) changes in governmental policies and countermeasures from the Australasian Korean language teaching communities; 2) reductions of secondary Korean language programs; 3) the relationship between Korean language programs and Korea-related studies programs; and 4) the implications of the presence of local Korean residents. The study also reviews the achievements and failures of the past and examines the recent (the past 3-5 years) developments at both policy and institution levels, to suggest directions and strategies for a revitalization of Korean language programs.
