As many as 35,000 children and adolescents between the ages of 6 and 18 are targeted.

Next, he aims to expand video-based English classes using native English teachers to 1,000 elementary and middle school students to reduce private education expenses and provide ‘untact’ education.

Classes are conducted through non-face-to-face video classes by English teachers in Korea and abroad, and it is expected that global lifelong education will be realized and regional competitiveness will be strengthened.
