Frequently Asked Questions

No. All of our classes are a group class. You can jump right into any existing classes. Let’s think of one example. You are level 1 based upon the self-assessment test and you want to start taking a class right away. The only class you can join is at 9 am on Thursdays and the students taking that class are at unit 8 out of 14 units. It is perfectly fine for you to join them. Why? Because unit 8 doesn’t necessarily mean that it is much more difficult that unit 1, so you can actually study any unit. (Book2 is more difficult that book1, though) Besides, you will be able to find a class that will start from the very first unit in the future. If not, we will help you to cover all the units that you have not studied:units 1-8. Getting started with a lesson as early as possible is important with your Korean language journey!

The Process of This Class

We give you homework before a class. In class, you mainly practice speaking as if you were talking in real life. We answer your questions, explain solidly and teach you all the skills so you can talk in Korean soon. Below is the process.

1. At home

  • Focus on listening and reading aloud.
  • Listen to the recording first without worries. Then, listen to the recording, pause and read aloud twice while trying to understand the meaning.
  • Continue reading out loud until things become natural to you.
  • Don’t worry too much about all the details and write questions to ask us.

2. Before lessons

Be ready with your course book! Also prepare 2 notebooks and a pen – one for fast note taking and the other for well organized expressions.

3. During lessons

First, your homework will briefly be checked. If it turns out that you fell short, you  will be asked to read everything aloud 3 times. Then, the teacher will explain things you have not understood. The focus will turn to speaking practice. Eventually, you will be asked to close your book and review by conversing only in Korean.

4. At the lesson wrap-up

The teacher will tell you your strengths and weaknesses along with study tips.

We recommend studying 1 hour, 6 days a week.

Not exactly, so don’t panic!

Before we start, your Korean abilities have to be assessed so that we can have lessons at the appropriate level.

Sejong (1397-1450) was the fourth king of the Joseon dynasty, best known for, among other accomplishments, commissioning the Hangeul writing script that is used in Korea to this very day.

 

Practice listening and reading aloud for 1 hour every day from Monday to Saturday.

Regarding Hangeul, the Korean Alphabet

Hangeul is the foundation on which the Korean language is learned. If you don’t know it, although we include Hangeul lessons at level 1, we strongly recommend learning it before you start off with us! Fortunately, Hangeul was designed so that people of all backgrounds can learn easily and quickly, including you!

A foundation in Hangeul will allow you to study and learn Korean effectively. Moreover, it is far more efficient in terms of cost and time. The difference is truly night and day.

We are happy to teach you from 기억 to 히읗, but it is best to pave your own way in building the foundations of the language with the Hangeul writing system. Again, we still offer a Hangeul class, though. Once you have mastered Hangeul, any word, expression, or grammar structure can be asked for the answer, and we assure you that those answers will stick.

You will eventually have to press on without us and someday when you are in the middle of Seoul, or when you are sending messages to a Korean friend on KakaoTalk, we hope you’ll have the self-confidence and determination to take your Korean language ability to the next level.
