native speakers


Jejueo is spoken on the Korean island of Jeju in addition to communities in Osaka, Japan, who descend from Jeju people who moved there over 60 years ago. 

Most fluent speakers on Jeju island are over 70 years old

The differences between Jejueo and standard Korean are significant, and most Koreans will only be able to recognise around 8% of the vocabulary, similar to the differences between German and Norwegian.

The Bultoek Experience

Bultoek is the stone enclosure that the female Haenyeo divers gather in on the island of Jeju.  The bultoek is a place for them to prepare for diving, cook their catch and bond with eachother.  The bultoek is symbolic of community, storytelling and the culture connected to the critically-endangered Jeju language.
