The Daegu Gyeongbuk English Village (DGEV) has been established via a partnership between the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (Colorado, USA) and Yeungjin College (Daegu, South Korea). The purpose of DGEV is to train students of all ages in the usage of the English language and to cultivate a global learning environment for the 21st Century. Additionally we wish to establish an environment which provides English education of South Korean citizens in an experiential learning environment of western cultures.

The Daegu Gyeongbuk English Village is a full-immersion, full-services program that offers rich English instruction for all ages.
A kindergarten exists for the youngest students that offers specialized programs to introduce English, while the focus for school-aged children and teenagers is a full-immersion environment. The campus offers 22 different "situation-locations" that are intended to act together as a "mini-city" where students can use English in real-life situations ranging from boarding a plane at an airport to depositing money at a bank to mailing a letter at a post office.
There are 101 classrooms in total, distributed across the three main academic buildings--the Main Building, the Situational Building, and the Creativity Building--plus the dormitory building for students and teachers.
In addition to the full-immersion experience there are intensive-instruction facilities geared for adolescents and adults that allow for English to be taught by subject, such as music, cooking, and art.
