This course is really a great start to learn Korean language. It taught me Hangul, particles used, vocabularies and how sentences are made. Thank you to Professor Seung Hae Kang and Yonsei University.

This class is a great first step for learners with no experience with Korean. If you have some experience with Korean and want to strengthen basic skills, this could also be for you. Thank you so much for sharing this course!

Me gusto mucho la manera en que la profesora explico la gramática del idioma y la pronunciación, en los ejericios de cada modulo el vocabulario estuvo variado y no fue demasiado extenso. Muchas gracias disfrute todo el cusro.

The teacher's teaching is very professional and it makes it easy to learn a totally different thing! I learned the whole alphabet in just one day. I could learn much more in weeks and gain knowledge about a different language

Очень хороший курс для начинающих! Доступно объяснены базовые вещи, много диалогов! Есть тест на проверку знаний и краткий конспект лекции. Курс был бы вообще идеальным, если бы еще были упражнения для самостоятельной работы.

It provides the learner with a strong grammatical introduction to the Korean Language system. In each module, the learner gains the knowledge and confidence to use new useful phrases to talk about their daily life in Korean.

I liked the course. They explain in a simple way to understand it. I would have liked to learn much more vocabulary or that there was a second stage. Still, I love it and I am going to put into practice everything I learned.

Clear and awesome! I learned a lot from having zero experience. Advice: try using course notes and video at the same time - it helps ingrain the knowledge into your brain deeper. I would definitely recommend to ANYONE. 10/10
