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.

I​ didn't expect much, but it truly was helpful! Teaches a lot of grammar fast, but in a way you can remember it. It also gives a lot of vocab to follow up with the grammar you are taught!
