About 90 Day Korean
안녕하세요? Thanks for stopping by and checking us out!
A bit of background about 90 Day Korean: We’re a mixed group of native Koreans and foreigners who live in Korea. We work together to give you all of the info you need about Korean language and culture.
We think the combo of both a native perspective and Korean learners from around the world gives you the best of both worlds.
The 90 Day Korean team creates lots of new content around Korean language and culture regularly. We support our readers with free Korean language and culture content on our blog, YouTube channel, and other social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc).
Everything we create on the blog, social media channels, and email is all free. We also have a paid private membership with our online web course that will teach you how to have a 3 minute conversation in the first 90 days.

Frequently Asked Questions
You do not need to know Korean, that’s totally optional (and very cool!). Everything we create on our blog is written in English. We also often include the Korean words or phrases in both Hangeul and English along with it. This is because language and culture are intertwined, so by learning about one, you get to know about the other as well.
If you are curious about reading Korean, you can see our teaching methods by downloading our free learn the Korean alphabet guide. If you like that, then you can start on your quest to have a 3 minute conversation in Korean in the first 90 days.
You can do that for free on our blog, or join the Inner Circle where you’ll get a structured course, personal Korean coaching, a mobile app, and a supportive community to help keep you motivated.
90 Day Korean has come a long way since we first released our 90 Minute Challenge to learn the Korean alphabet in late 2013. Many now use our resources to study Korean in the comfort of their own home. We publish regular free content by email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, and our blog – plus we have interesting challenges, quizzes, and contests that inspire, educate and engage readers.
Our passion is helping people learn about Korean language and culture, plain and simple.
We bring together principles from psychology, education, coaching and rapid language learning to present content so you can study Korean in a fun, motivating way using the most efficient method possible.
The 90 Day Korean team is made up of both native and non-native Korean speakers with backgrounds in various disciplines including, but not limited to, psychology, education, coaching and writing. 90 Day Korean was born from the simple concept that the traditional materials for studying Korean were outdated and needed an overhaul. We came with one goal in mind: to help you learn Korean fast!
We help people learn to have a 3 minute conversation in Korean in the first 90 days. From there we help people hit their Korean goals using 90 day goalposts.
The idea behind the company started when we saw too many people trying to study Korean without learning Hangeul. Instead, we saw people using romanized English to learn Korean. That makes it unnecessarily hard and slow, and we wanted to help with that.
We had to prove to the world that it is easy to learn the Korean alphabet, and we created a fun challenge as evidence.
Since then, we’ve had the honor of helping thousands of students hit their Korean language learning dreams, and are looking forward to helping more.

There are no class schedules. Our structured courses do follow a schedule according to when you start them. However, they are self-paced and can be adjusted according to your learning style and schedule. They are designed similar to a university course with lessons you and then put into practice using our Challenge exercises.
The 90 Day Korean courses are self study lessons with full support. They are not live classes. The lessons are primarily text lessons with audio, games, activities, and Challenge exercises. The course currently does not have video. We have plans to add in some video to complement the course, but the main content will still be structured text lessons. This allows us to make constant improvements and upgrades the program. The courses are self-paced so you can advance through them as quickly or as slowly as you'd like.
The course is self-study, so we don't have 1 on 1 video classes. However, we have speaking practice classes that are done over Zoom. The speaking practice classes are done in groups where you can get the opportunity to practice your speaking and pronunciation skills. You'll get immediate feedback from a native Korean coach.
Yes, our teachers are native Korean speakers. We also have coaches to help you with any Korean questions you have as you go through your lessons. Our coaches are native Korean speakers.
