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

Para mí que no tenía la menor idea de nada, me ha servido muchísimo este curso. Ya me siento preparada para enfrentar otros niveles. Muy agradecida por la pedagogía empleada y los recursos empleados. Disfruté mucho el curso. Muchas gracias.

the instructor has really patient and nice vibes! and the pace is good for a beginner like me :-) it teaches a variety of grammar, vocab and sentence structure, will recommend to those with no/little korean language knowledge!

This course is nice, because you can learn a lot. And it's really nice. If you finish this course, and you study it, i'm sure you will speak very well.

But i would like to say something. This course could be boring, and a little tired. I finished it, but i feel i didn't learn so i'm repeating it again, okay if i didn't learn it's my fault, but i don't feel motivated with this course. I think Suzi is a little boring. She's good. But you can feel tired. Depends the person. Regards! :D

A great teacher and a great design . but the curriculum is devoid of beginner's grammar and jumped suddenly to complex sentences and the course ended without me knowing what even the personal pronouns are, which is ridiculous . at least I got used to the reading and learnt some vocabulary so Thank you for that ^^

El curso es perfecto para aprender lo básico del coreano y mantener una conversación de presentación y algunas cosas sobre la vida diaria, en general el curso me pareció muy bien y lo recomendaría bastante si estás interesado en aprender el idioma ya que se explican bastante bien sobre la gramatica del idioma coreano, asi como aplia bastante tu vocabulario en el mismo, se explica de algunas palabras y su significado proveniente del chino, en pronunciación y se entiende y aprende bastante bien.

강승혜 is a wonderful teacher! She made the class very enjoyable and easy to understand. I loved taking this course along with practicing on duolingo and with Talk To Me In Korean. This was a great introduction to the language and I hope to continue studying korean.

모든 강의 재미있었어요! 많이 배웠어요. 정말 고맙습니다!

Es un buen curso, puedes aprender lo básico y lo mejor es que siempre hay ejercicios y conoces nuevo vocabulario. Debes ser constante para aprender el idioma.
