si bien ya habia en general estas unidades de coreano, me ayudo para profundizar los conocimientos. Y aprender vocabulario que desconocia. Esta muy bueno para fijar conocimientos y en caso de no tener conocimientos previos, es muy didactico.

Challenging and comprehensive course. Lessons were well structured and adds more depth to usual beginner's classes. Recommended for anyone who wants to have a stronger foundation in their Korean language. Dialogues included were fun as well.

A good introduction to Korean Conversations, which is enough to carry using what was learnt in the course. Simple to understand and the exercises are useful to strengthen the knowledge taught in the lecture. I enjoyed learning the course! :)

It's a great course to get the basics down and learn the sentence structure concepts with realistic scenarios in the videos they showed.

I'd highly recommend it to anyone starting and even being an intemediate student of the korean language.

High quality materials. Well paced, but still managed to cover quite a bit. Definitely expanded my grammar and vocab through this course. Also, the instructor was great! I only wish the audio quality in the dialogue videos had been clearer.

The course is very useful. It gives you the necessary vocabulary and grammar to go manage to communicate in day-to-day conversations. I am going to South Korea with some friends in March and I feel the course's material would come in handy.

The lessons are very clear and easy to understand especially the use of particles. I suggest for the videos with dialogues at the end of every lesson to have louder audio because at some point the dialogues can't be heard loud enough.
