Lessons are well broken down to a simple learning pace. Pronunciation and vocabulary sections are particularly helpful to not only learn to write, but speak basic korean proficiently.

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.
