Me encanto! Las clases son muy dinámicas, aunque ayudaría bastante que coloquen una imagen con la pronunciación correcta de las palabras en el idioma coreano.

It was a very helpful start to learning a new language. I will definitely need to practice the lessons to get it down, but now I have the information to start.
