Emmanuel Korean School offers an array of classes designed to further enhance Korean-American kids' connection to their heritage.

WEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Inside a long-established Korean church at the corner of 47th & Spruce Street in West Philadelphia, the Emmanuel Korean School of Philadelphia conducts classes on Korean culture every Saturday morning.

The students are Korean-American children whose parents have decided to send them there, in addition to their regular schooling, to further enhance their connection to the Korean side of their heritage.

Classes include Korean language, drumming and music, art, and more.
