This is how I learned other languages.

Systematic, disciplined, persistent and consistent!

I am a trilingual. I speak English, Korean and Nepali. I have also learned Tagalog and am learning Japanese now. The most difficult language to me was English. English is originated from Latin and Ancient Greek for the most part. Its phonetic system and grammar are completely different from my mother tongue. For these reasons, I needed to find a way to get the most of my time and energy.

When I first faced with English was when I was 6. My mother bought my sister and me some English language books with pictures and recordings. I still remember I was bored at home and played them and repeated after what the character, Mike’s family spoke. ‘Dad, What’s that?’ ‘It’s a monkey’ I got used to English. My sister taught me some English when she started learning it in junior high. I was the only kid who could say the alphabet and read English in my class. My classmates thought it was a cool thing to read English words and sentences. I could read and understand English a little bit due to this early input, but it was far from being able to converse with native speakers

I was in the 6th grade when my best friend started going to an English academy in town. He told me it is fun to go there so I told my parents that I wanted to study English there, too. They said yes and I picked up English pretty fast. As I entered Junior High, English was one of the important subjects. It wasn’t very difficult to me, but the problem was the entire English education system was centered around stupid grammar and reading. No kids in my school spoke English at all. Soon I figured what I needed was recordings for the textbook, so I bought them from a bookstore, listened to the recordings and repeated the sentences over and over again until everything became natural to me. I asked my English teacher many questions to understand certain sentence structures I wasn’t sure of and got answers from them. I was very dedicated and disciplined. I set my goal when I was in the second year: I wanted to be an interpreter and I became one later in life. I also enrolled for an English class at an academy to practice speaking.

In high school, I kept learning English, but I didn’t have much time as being high school in Korea is the busiest life ever. I wanted to be more productive in learning English. I researched many effective theories and methods from books. I kept on working hard towards my goal. I got lots of awards in English contests in school.

After graduation, I majored in business English in community college and transferred to Seoul National Unversity of Technology, which is today Seoul Technical University. I did everything I could do to improve English. I continued to take more classes especially of native speakers of English to practice speaking, watched Hollywood movies, read newspapers and magazines. I first started listening to pop songs when I was in the 1st year in  junior high.

I have been teaching English in Seoul for many years. My students are mostly office workers, but there are also free lance workers, doctors, nurses, flight attendants, students, business owners, etc. I offer a study guide for them when they start off a class. I teach them English with all my heart with tips and advice.

I learned Japanese in high school. I learned Nepali while doing volunteer service. I first taught Korean in 2011 for my friends with the book EASY KOREAN. After that, I started teaching Korean to many people, most of whom are from Nepal and USA. I apply the same principles to teaching Korean. I offer practical tips for my students. One of the tips I offer is to rely on the sound. I also tell my students to shadow read and answer in full sentences. When teaching a language, caring for students is the most important factor from which you can come up with a systematic program. Good stuff always comes from a good heart. Many people would describe what I do as teaching, but I think differently. I believe it is more like a language trainer that pushes, encourages, and guides you within a good program.

Why Eungul is a legit teacher

I know what you need because I have already achieved it.

1

Organized

Teaching a language should be regarded carefully. Learning Korean shouldn’t be too serious or too entertainment-centered. Don’t learn Korean from anybody who teaches Korean without a solid plan.

2

Teach Proper Korean

We care ♥. Don’t learn Korean from just anybody who does not know how to teach properly. Even if you make a mistake, he/she will just skip over your mistakes.

3

Been there, done that

We know your potential struggle. Learn from somebody who has made lots of efforts in learning and teaching. You will be able to learn from him/her.
