Altiora intelligently prepares for the future by “Expanding native English education on the basis of strong creative cognitive education”.

 

Our motto is "Altiora Petamus," which means "Let us seek higher things." At Altiora, our mission is centered on helping students in this generation become leaders. Our curriculum is based on STEAM education that is fun and innovative to help young learners learn English as native English speakers.

Programs

 

ALTIORA provides an ESL-focused education for young learners in Kindergarten, and Elementary (grades 1-6) following the STEAM education program. The lessons cover topics such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, and physical education.

 

The ability to understand the essence is built on the basis of fundamental language comprehension competency. Language comprehension skills are maximized when a foreign language is acquired as if it were a native language.

 

Language comprehension has a great impact on the development of cognitive abilities as well as the acquisition of other foreign languages.

 

For those reasons, Altiora's language literacy education is a collaboration between Korean and English.

 

Location Description

 

Seoul is a megacity, with just under 10 million inhabitants in the main city and 25 million in Gyeonggi province. A 24-hour city, Seoul has an intense work-hard, play-hard culture. The booming metropolis fuses tradition and modernity. At the same time, retail therapy and cutting-edge technology—Wi-Fi even in parks!—reign in Seoul. The city integrates an urban landscape with large green spaces, making it a great destination for nature buffs and city fans. Seoul is experiencing a growing multicultural influence.

 

The climate of Seoul is considered both humid subtropical and humid continental. Summers are hot and humid and the East Asian monsoon has a strong impact on Seoul's weather from June to July. Winters are usually cold and dry, although the city gets an average of 28 days of snow per year. The average January low temperature for Seoul is 21 degrees F (-6 degrees C) and the average August high temperature is 85 degrees F (29.5 degrees C).

 

Hongdae: Hongdae is a neighborhood known for its clubs, bars, and shops selling everything from clothing and cosmetics to living goods and books. The streets are also filled with buskers and dance performances, making a walk here quite entertaining.

 


Gangnam District: Dive into the frenetic playground south of the river that has sprawling shopping malls and an intense nightlife scene.

 

Itaewon: Well-known for its party atmosphere and vibrant nightlife. Foreigner-friendly clubs, bars, and lounges line the streets and there is a party happening every night of the week! 

 

Insadong Tea house: Escape the hectic pace of the city as you sip tea in the calm and warm environment of a traditional tea house.
