A really good starting point to understand what's the Hangeul is constituted of and have a taste test on daily conversation. Last 2 modules were of quick pace which encourages me to revisit more often

Es muy claro y conciso, como cualquier idioma es importante practicarlo y pues falta una manera de poder revisar como estamos diciendo las cosas (la pronunciación). fuera de eso. siento que aprendí mucho.

Very helpful! it is basically everything you need to know to write and speak korean as a beginner, you have to do a lot of practice on your own tho, that is the only way to fully learn. Love the program.

This course is very easy to understand and follow. As a fan of K-dramas, I am familiar with a lot of words in the lessons. I got to learn the basics of forming sentences here and understand their meaning.
