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

Thank you for spending your valuable time in creating this course. This is very much helpful for beginners like me. However, there are some Graded Quizzes that needs thorough review.

Muy buen curso, aunque de repente desaparecieron los subtítulos en español y salían otros idomas, pero pude terminarlo bien. Me encanta que dejen material descargable para practicar.
