Tallinn King Sejong Institute (Korean: 탈린 세종학당) is the first institution of its kind ever established in Estonia, where anyone can learn the Korean language and Korean culture.

TKSI is a part of the King Sejong Institute Foundation - public institution under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Korea, established to manage Korean language education abroad and the distribution of Korean culture. 

King Sejong Institute has been operating since 2007 all over the world: at the moment it has 167 institutes in 55 countries. In 2015 King Sejong Institute came to Estonia and started operating in collaboration with TalTech university. In 2019 TKSI was reopened at the Tallinn University.

The institute's name refers to Sejong the Great, the inventor of the Korean alphabet.

TKSI mission is to create an environment where everyone dreams of the Korean language and culture.

We are trying to inform people about Korean language and culture and to make people's interest in Korea grow into understanding and love for Korea.
