Here are the benefits of this course and what you'll be able to do...

icon number 1

Learning all the formalities.

The Korean language has a ton of formalities, and learning them all can be challenging due to their complexity and variations in usage.

Here’s what you can do:
Break down formalities into manageable categories, prioritize commonly used ones, and gradually incorporate them into interactions.

icon number 2

Lack of feedback.

Not getting sufficient feedback makes it difficult to gauge progress and identify areas for improvement in learning Korean.

Here’s what you can do:
Join language exchange groups or online platforms to interact with native speakers who can provide valuable feedback on your language usage.

icon number 3

Memorizing over 400 verb endings without being able to use any in a conversation.

Memorizing all the verb endings without being able to use them in a conversation can feel overwhelming and disconnected from practical communication.

Here’s what you can do:
Focus on learning verb endings in context by using them in sentences during language practice to enable a practical understanding of their usage.

Getting stuck with Korean grammar markers.

Korean grammar markers can be confusing, especially since their order and usage can significantly alter the entire meaning of the sentence.

Here’s what you can do:
Study grammar markers step by step and use resources like videos and interactive exercises, and engage with sentences that showcase marker usage. But remember, you don’t need to master all Korean grammar markers to be able to have a conversation with a native.

Losing motivation after using the wrong words can be disheartening, leading to a sense of discouragement in the learning process.
