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

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.

I recommend this course for someone who wants to know Korean but doesn't have any experience yet. He teaches you started from the basic Korean alphabet until making a simple sentence. Thank you

This was great as a first glimpse to what the language comprehends, I learned what I wanted which was to understand pronunciation of the Korean alphabet and a handful of conversational phrases.

มีการอธิบายที่เข้าใจงา่ย มีการยกตัวอย่างประโยคและแบบฝึกควบคู่กันไป ทำให้เข้าใจได้มากขึ้น และมีแบบทดสอบวัดควาเข้าใจ ทำให้เราสามารถรู้ได้ว่าเราขาดความรู้เรื่องอะไร และเข้าใจบทเรียนมากน้อยเพียงใด

Realmente aprendí lo básico pero es muy esencial para saber cómo hablar, más que solo gramática, igual se aprendió más sobre la cultura de Corea Un curso bastante claro y corto, con lo básico.
