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.

Excelente curso, fácil de seguir, espero que puedan habilitar un segundo o tercer módulo. Las lecciones son algo rápidas pero nada que el botón de pausa no puede salvar. Me gustó como explican las cosas.

The course was full of vocabulary words to help students learn how to communicate basic conversations. The topics discussed were well presented and their corresponding exercises were challenging enough.
