Korean Beginners - do you have the following problems?

When you start learning a new language, probably you don’t know where to start with. There are a lot of basic Korean classes in the market, which vary from quality, teacher qualifications and even reviews. And on top of that, the course schedule and location lack flexibility. So, how can Korean newbies master foundation Korean efficiently?

Fail to Find a Way to Accommodate Your Study Style

The market is stacked with a variety of foundation Korean classes and traditional courses have time and place restrictions. It is hard to find a course that can match with your schedule & language ability.

Lack of Confidence

You are not confident for your Korean pronunciation & grammar. There is no way for you to apply your Korean in daily life, so you cannot communicate with others confidently and comfortably

Boring Lessons, No Fun!

Standardized teaching materials lack of practicability in daily lives. It is hard to recall the memory after classes.

Why is it so hard for you to master the basic Korean?

Developing Korean basis seems easy. However, if you adopt the wrong learning method at the very beginning and together with insufficient regular practices and application, you will then fail in building the Korean foundation. And that's why you are not able to master the basic oral, writing, listening and reading Korean skills.

3 Ways to Skyrocket Your Basic Korean Ability
Find a Tailor-made Course
Find a Tailor-made Course
Traditional courses have fixed teaching framework and learning pattern, which fails to cater for students with different capabilities. This could be hard for those students to catch up with the class progress and finally they may not be able to grasp the Korean foundation. On the contrary, online courses are relatively flexible, teachers professional background and comments are open and transparent. Students can choose their own teacher depending on their needs. And more importantly, they can request the teacher to customize course content depending on their own interests and ability, for instance, travel Korean. Then, students will not be left behind the learning process.

Personalized courses gives students the power to control the course content. Along with flexible course arrangement, learning Korean has never been easier.

There are very limited opportunities to apply Korean. But whenever there is a chance, we always avoid to take the initiatives to speak in Korean as we are afraid of pronunciation errors. As time passes, we lose our confidence in speaking Korean.

To overcome this mental struggles, the most important thing to do is practice. Therefore, you may need a one-on-one coaching session. Under the professional guidance from experienced teachers, they will teach you the most accurate Korean pronunciation, as well as your speaking tone. After continuous training, your confidence in Korean can definitely enhance.

If the context that you studied is not applicable to daily lives, you may not memorize those conversations easily. One way teaching along with teaching materials that lack usability can definitely snuff out your interest and passion in learning Korean. Korean does not necessarily to be dull learning, the most effective way of learning Korean is to immerse your language into your daily life. Through intimating different daily situations, such as buying tickets or asking for directions, it can deepen your impression and memory of the language usage. Since these context is highly applicable in our daily lives, your learning efficiency can also be strengthened.

Honestly I think I get addicted to language learning since I started to learn Korean. The more I have learnt about this language, the more I found it very challenging but also super fun.. I can't wait to make use of what I have learnt when I can travel to Korean! 한국어는 아름다운 언어예요!

If you have a wide range of vocabulary but lack the opportunity to practice, we recommend you choose a native speaker as your Korean language coach.
