About the Course

Welcome to Learn to Speak Korean 1! This course is for beginner students who are familiar with the Korean alphabet, Hangeul. Through this course students will learn the skills essential for daily interactions with Koreans while living in Korea. This course consists of six modules, and each module is composed of five units.

Excellent course. I learned a lot of the basic words and phrases to speak to my Korean friends in their native language. Very easy to follow and the practices helped the learning and listening skills.

I find it hard and confusing at first but eventually I had fun. I love Korea so much that is why I want to learn Hangul. Also I will visit Korea when the pandemic is over. Thank you Yonsei University.

Me gustó mucho, tenía lecciones fáciles y directas que hacían que fuera mas sencillo comprender la gramática, con los documentos de lectura y trabajo facilitaba la práctica, y las listas de vocabulario de curso fueron de mucha ayuda

I’m so glad for finding a course to help me improve my Korean. I self-study to learn 한글 but I still needed more to learn and with this course I can now say I’ve learned so much and now can have conversations. Thank you ☺️ so much!!!

Very nice course, there's a lot of grammar to take in, and many words introduced in each lesson, if I could add anything to it, it would be a little more practice time, it was challenging for me to memorize all the words I needed

The teacher explains herself so good, so I am able to understand the course. Now I am able to speak more confident this language.But, the course is too short and you should add a low intermediate course and so on until advance.
