This class has been so helpful! The instructor was easy to understand and the additional worksheets made studying independently possible.

I really enjoyed the short segments about Korean culture at the end of each week as well :-)

It was a big challenge for me because my mother language is spanish, but the method of learning that you bring us makes the course easier to learn, I'm so glad with all the teachers and I hope to learn more about this language.

El curso me encantó, aprendí muchas cosas y entendí bastante bien el lenguaje. Me hubiera gustado que este curso fuera un poco más extenso. Favor de ofrecer cursos intermedios y avanzados. Pero aún así recomiendo este curso!!!!

안녕하세요. 저는 태국에서 선생님 수업을 받은 벤츠라고 합니다. 저는 일본에서 4년동안 대학교를 다녔어요. 거기서 만난 한국 친구가 많이 있어서 한국어에 관심이 많아졌어요. 그리고 한국어와 일본어가 문법적으로 비슷해서 간단하게 공부 할 수 있다고 생각해서 시작했어요. 선생님 수업 덕분에 여러가지 복습할 수 있어서 좋았어요. 특히 자주 틀리는 부분을 정확하게 설명해주셔서 많이 도움이 되었어요. 감사합니다.

It's a very good short course to review my foundation in Korean. Although I've been learning Korean for quite a while now, this course made me want to build my basics again especially the numbers and time. Thank you Professor~

Great course for beginners. Covers all the basics for everyday conversation. The course is structured well with comprehensive notes and practice questions, the tests help recall all that is learnt in the course of each lesson.

I would suggest adding some details and examples on how to use the different words for "morning" and "afternoon" since they can be used in different ways and have different meanings and is still confusing to see the difference

Extremely well organized and explained. Yonsei University has a well-deserved reputation. I am surprised that Sogang University doesn't provide anything like this online except through this link:

Muy buen curso, como introducción explica la forma básica de algunos verbos, algo de vocabulario, preguntas y respuestas, explica también la pronunciación y algunos verbos irregulares. Me gustaría que tuviera una segunda parte
