"I have taken many Korean courses and this is the best one I have ever taken."
~ Dave Tonetti; Language Professor at Seoul National University
Kick your Korean into gear with COMPLETE and UNLIMITED access to a course that has become well-known for making simple sense of a seemingly "difficult" language, for the rest of your entire Korean-learning life, and for a FRACTION of the usual tuition fee...
(PLEASE NOTE: this is only available until Thursday, December 11th)
What's up ROKstar! <--- see what I did there?^^
If your goal is to improve your Korean and hold better, deeper conversations with your friends or family, or simply be able to get around and handle everyday situations in Korea with fewer pains and annoyances, then this could be one of the best decisions you've made.
As a "THANK YOU" for checking out my site, putting up with my emails, sticking around throughout all that, and NOW checking out this "Key to Korean Fluency" mini-series (which I hope you're enjoying by the way), I would like to extend to you a special one time offer...
This is easily THE BEST way to access all the videos here at KDA because you...
Get LIFETIME access to everything.
There is a TON of great Korean-learning content in here - literally the ENTIRE course here at KDA - and you don't want to be rushed.
By registering on this page (and this page only), you can keep it and use it to continue to improve your Korean for the rest of your life (or as long as you are learning and need it anyway).
Get it for a CRAZY-LOW tuition price.
Normally to purchase access to the course, it's $75/level (with slight discounts for purchasing multiple levels at once), and that would only get you year-long access to the videos.
But with this "Thank you" offer, you're welcome to a massive 66% discount off of the full tuition price.
That means that for a little more than the price of ONE level, you can actually get access to all four levels.
And again, that's for LIFETIME access, not just year-long access that comes standard at the regular tuition rate.
And here is exactly EVERY THING
you are getting lifetime access to...
ALL of the video lectures in the members area
- roughly 50 HOURS of Korean-language instruction
- delivered in plain, easy to understand English
- taught by an experienced teacher of both English and Korean who has actually BEEN through it, learned Korean, and developed an effective system to guide you through it as well
The purpose of level #1 is really two-fold:
1) It’s to give you a LOT of useful things to say that you will use in your everyday life (either here in Korea, or when talking with friends), and build a base of UNDERSTANDING of how these basic structures work.
We cover the basic sentence (a few different forms), numbers (both sets), and a lot of questions you will use around town and in basic conversation. Things like,”What’s that?”, “How much is it?”, “What do you do?”, “Where is the ____?”, ordering food and drinks, and asking personal questions like “Do you have ______?”
2) Secondly, it’s basically to get you comfortable with Korean and really prepare you for level #2 which is where we get into the Nuts and Bolts of the language and then expand from there into more complex stuff.
It’s a more-than-obvious statement to say that Korean is quite a bit “different” than English, and so our goal for level #1 is, along with giving you lots of really useful things to say and building your understanding of the language beneath that, is to help get your tongue comfortable with the way Korean is spoken, your ears comfortable with the sounds, and your brain comfortable with the overall way that Korean builds. Again, to get you ready for level #2 where things really get fun (and USEFUL!!)
Level #1 is a mix of conversational stuff as well as just some very useful survival stuff that you can use while living here, but level #2 is going to go much deeper into “conversational” Korean.
The first half of the course focuses on practicing and improving verb conjugations using super common questions and answers – again, of a much more “conversational” nature – as a springboard.
Throughout the level, we learn and practice speaking in the past tense, future tense and a few other REALLY common and key tenses you will definitely want to learn.
Once we have a good grasp on the Nuts and Bolts of Korean, we expand into more complex structures to not only give you more useful structures you can (and will!) use in conversations, but that help illustrate further just why the Nuts and Bolts are so important.
And throughout the entire level #2, you will be learning LOTS of new super common “every day” verbs
Levels #1 and 2 focused largely on specific structures and really showing HOW the language works.
While level #3 will also include structure practice and explanations of how things will work, the emphasis will be on learning and discussing various topics (i.e. hobbies, vacations, neighbourhoods, and so on) using “natural” Korean conversation, and really starting to “apply” the structures (we’ve learned and will learn) to REAL conversation.
Here are a couple main new additions…
* Target questions on a certain topic to be discussed:
Two of our Korean teachers sat down for each class and interviewed each other using the same questions that we will discuss in class. The answers were recorded in “natural”, everyday Korean and (the breakdown of them) serve as model answers and usage of target vocabulary and structures, to help students form their own answers and discuss the target questions.
* A very STRONG listening component
The conversations between our teachers were recorded and turned into mp3 files and listening “Gap-fill” activities so you can test and improve your listening as well as use them to model your speech around for improved and more natural pronunciation and intonation.
Basically the goal of this level is to now start “tying it all together” and applying everything we’ve been learning in an effort to really start to put “conversations” together.
Not always the easiest step to make in a second language but you’ve always got the help of your ever-so-helpful Korean teacher to help you through it and of course me via email for any questions you might have.
Level #4 really just picks up where level #3 leaves off and continues discussing more topics and delivering more relevant structures and vocab needed to do so.
Similar to level #3, there are model answers provided by our Korean teachers and a VERY strong listening component.
Level #4 also contains a sub-goal of developing the skill of “story-telling”; basically describing events that happened in the past (i.e. “I was walking down the street and all of a sudden…”). I personally believe this skill to be one of the most useful you can have, however, is certainly reserved for more advanced students in my opinion.
ALL of the video supplemental downloadables
- Roughly 200 pages of workbook activities (with answers) so you can consolidate and retain everything you're learning
- mp3-files recordings of each class (recorded by a native speaker) so you can improve your listening as well as your own pronunciation and intonation when speaking the language
So if you...
- can say some things in Korean but want to build some structure beneath what you already know, this will help you do that.
- are too busy to attend and keep up with live classes, this will allow you to continue to improve on your own WHENEVER you have time.
- have EVER struggled to learn Korean because the explanations of how it all works just didn't really make sense, this will help you simplify things and get over that hurdle and actually SPEAKING Korean.
- would like to get COMPLETE and UNLIMITED access to the entire course - a course that has been described as "the best Korean course" available by a language professor at the most prestigious university in Korea - for the rest of your entire Korean-learning life...
