Abstract
The current study examined the difficulties in communication and

Korean language acquisition experienced by migrant women in Korea

along with problems that they face in the areas of education and

culture. A survey was conducted and a total of 101 individuals (4

males and 97 females) participated in the study. However, 4 males

were excluded for the current analysis. According to the results, one of

the most difficult issues of being migrant women in Korea, most of

whom were marriage migrants, was communication. Consequently, the

demands for Korean language education and bilingual education

support programs were found to be high among this population. They

were also highly interested in their childrens education. Finally, the

study will discuss the specific needs of this population based on the

survey results in an attempt to resolve the identified difficulties such

as communication, language barriers, education and cultural problems.

This calls for the development and improvement of human rights

programs that are more reachable and culturally-relevant.
