The lecturer was awesome and made it easy for me to understand concepts I didn't understand when I took a beginner's course at the Korean Cultural Centre in my country.

This lesson really helps me to understand the Korean language. I hope there will be another lesson that is more advance than this lesson, that leads to more grammar lesson.

I was a bit of an advanced learner, but I can see how this would really help the learners that are just starting out! I do wish the quizzes were a bit more dynamic, though.

Everything is explained nicely and in details. I had some problems with numbers, but that just meant that I need more practice. I wish there was a more advanced course too.

Me gustó aprender este idioma aunque no fuera por razones académicas, me ayudó mucho que tenga plazo de termino porque si no es probable que no lo haya llegado a completar.

It's a great way to first learn the Korean language in an online platform. I guess I can now understand the language and write basic sentences with the help of this course.

Very good for starting from zero! I recommend writing everything you see on screen in terms of vocab and scripts, the writing practice helps with retention and readability.
