Hi, and welcome to the first class where the focus will NOT be on how to read and write, rather, how to SPEAK Korean!!
Please notice that from this class onward, in your downloadable language booster pack, there is now a workbook that you can use to practice and consolidate the concepts you'll be learning in class, and each class moving forward. So make sure you check that out (after going through the videos). I think you'll find it a very big help.
And for the last time I'm going to say, to get the most out of the remainder of these classes, IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT you are able to read and write.
So if you can't do that yet, then I would encourage you to spend some time and effort and get that done. It will serve you so much better for the rest of these classes.
And conversely, not doing so will hinder your progress quite a bit as we don't use any phonetics in this class 'cause I believe it's a terribly inefficient way to learn. And on top of that, it can also be frustrating for your classmates who have put in the time and effort and learned how to do it.
Again, speed is not important, but a definite associate between a character and the sound it makes is. So get that done, then watch/study these classes, and from here on out, it's gonna be all about speaking, and lots of it!
With that said, let's get into it!
NOTE: in the vocabulary list, I teach and practice the word for pencil case as 연필통. But actually, you can knock off the first block and just use 필통. That's the more natural usage.
So that's the end of our first class on the basic sentence and how to SPEAK Korean.
The next 3 classes are all going to build upon material we covered in this class so it's really important that you get any questions you might have cleared up before moving forward, so feel free to either email me or leave a question on the facebook page.
