A high school in the U.S. state of Maryland has decided to adopt the Korean language as part of its official foreign language curriculum, sources said Monday.

Eleanor Roosevelt High School, just outside of Washington, plans to teach Korean from the school year starting in August, the sources said. 

The school plans to announce the decision in a ceremony this week to be attended by Yumi Hogan, wife of Gov. Larry Hogan, according to a news report.

The school has included Korean language in its after-school curriculum since last year, the report said. (Yonhap)
