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 was an excellent introduction course to Korean. I already have some prior knowledge of Korean before I took this course, so this was a great way for me to review and consolidate what I've learnt so far. Thank you.

Realmente aprendí que todo esfuerzo tiene su recompensa, ahora que perfeccioné ciertas fallas de mi coreano, puedo dialogar un poco en este nuevo idioma, gracias por la enseñanza que me ha brindado, me sirvió de mucho.

Helpful, clearly presented. I do like each module starting off with a dialogue between two people (such as the Daniel and Suzy sketches), as understanding Korean as a listener has been the most difficult aspect for me.

Es un gran curso, aprendí mucho, todo lo explican bien y de la manera más comprensible, sobre todo la pronunciación que a veces es lo más difícil, además la maestra que imparte el curso es muy agradable, todo perfecto.

El curso es muy bueno, salvo el único inconveniente que tuve es que toda l unidad 5 viene en ingles y no se puede traducir al español por lo que me costo mas completar la unidad, pero excelente trabajo muchas gracias.

Great course. Excellent teacher. I just wish it says on the certificate how many hours the course takes.

E.g. 18 hour course.

I also hope there will be another higher beginner level to this course and then intermediate.

The course was thorough and well-presented by Professor Seung Hae Kang. Pronunciations in Korean and English were very clearly spoken. The coursework was substantial for self-study and all guidance was well-explained.

Muy bueno, yo que no tenía ninguna idea de nada, me enseñó mucho y lo aprendí con facilidad.

En español en la semana 5 no está bien traducido así que si no sabes inglés batallas un poco para entender las explicaciones.

The format for this course is challenging, but rewarding for a first-time Korean learner. The lecture notes are helpful, but don't include all the scenarios from the lecture so taking notes during the video helps too.

Me encantó la clase, aunque en los últimos módulos no tenía subtitulos en español.

Quisiera saber cómo podría seguir tomando el curso quiero aprender más.

Si tiene un costo lo pagaría, pero necesito más clases...gracias
