Welcome to the Korean Digital Academy Members Area!

My name's Rob and may I officially welcome you to KDA.

There's a lot more information you'll need and want to know about this program in the Members Area here (links above in the navigation bar), but...

I do want to address something first:

First off, I'm glad you're here. Seriously.  We limit the amount of people in here by asking for their name and email right in the beginning like that.

It turns some people away, but more importantly it ensures a certain quality of the ones who do come 'cause it takes someone reading the page and liking what they read enough to take that first step.

You did that. I thank you, I'm glad you're here, and if you're okay with it, I would like the opportunity to help you if I can.

Which brings me to my second point…

KDA really has helped a lot of people learn Korean since its beginning over a decade ago, and there's a good chance we can help you as well.

However, the unfortunate reality is that neither of us are actually going to know unless you give it a try.

I realize there's a cost to joining, but the fact is it's a very minimal cost considering everything you get with it, and more importantly...

...what it can mean if you do find the program to be a good fit for you and it helps you improve your Korean efficiently.

This language can be learned, relatively easier than most people think, and with each notch of progress comes more interesting opportunities and experiences.


Your experiences will of course look entirely different than mine, but a few of my highlights are:

  • I got a university teaching job I wasn't qualified for on paper

  • I've had countless chats with countless little old ajumas on the street and taxi drivers

  • I met my wife and got accepted by her dad

  • I got to help run an English hagwon for 8 years before helping sell it in the Spring of 2014

  • I got to be a significant part of a hockey team and rugby club for about 5 years each

  • Not to mention getting to run successful Korean classes for an entire decade now…

And yet all those together total only a fraction of my positive experiences that no one can ever take away from me, 100% due to my willingness to learn and now ability to speak Korean.

Again, your path of opportunities and experiences will most likely look entirely different to mine, and that's great, but the common trait they will share is that they are all awesome, and would never be traded for anything.

I'm a skier and so I liken speaking another language to skiing in the fact that...

The better you get at it, the more enjoyable it becomes.  


So it's a win-win to put the effort toward it and learn how to do it...NO MATTER how long it might take.

Obviously there's more to find out before deciding and so I invite you to give us a try.

And please know that if you're in, I'm all in, your Korean teachers are all in as well, and we look forward to meeting and helping you.

Cheers!

Rob

P.S. When it comes to learning a language, consistency is key to progress. If you can provide a bit of that, then I will help make that effort count. I've done it for many and I can do it for you.

"KDA has been SO helpful for me. I came to Korea with a very basic understanding of verbs and some vocabulary, and after just two months I have felt comfortable having full conversations in Korean! The material is easy to follow, and I have felt a lot of support from my teacher and classmates to learn more and more each lesson. Great program!"

"The best thing about your course is your insight about the practical ("natural") application of the target languages. It really helps me understand the why, when, and how behind their uses. Looking forward to seeing the improvement in my fluency!"

David Tran
K-culture Super Fan

"I really have enjoyed the classes overall. I do see that I have improved in my memory recall for speaking, and I don't take as long to form some sentences. Thank you for all that you have done. These classes are so amazing and helpful!"

Bethany Irwin
English Teacher, South Korea

"I really love Emily and your online videos. I've tried a lot (3-5) different programs to learn Korean and this has been by far the most useful. It's really nice to hear a foreigner speak Korean and understand why some Korean elements are so confusing to another foreigner. I've already been using lots of the information I've learned, and I feel like my ability has significantly improved."

English Teacher, South Korea

Main Course

This level starts right in the beginning and leaves nothing out. Classes #1 and 2 teach you exactly how to read and write Korean. Then from class #3 we get into the basic sentence and how to SPEAK Korean. Throughout this level you will grow comfortable with the basic Korean sentence as well as learn some very common and useful questions (and answers to those questions) that you can and will use in everyday Korean. In class #11 you will also get introduced to speaking in the past tense in Korean, and class #12 will complete the level by introducing one of the most common groups of verbs used, (something which will be expanded on in Level Two).

Easy

Main Course

In level two, we dive deeper into the language. In the first half of the course, you will get lots of practice with verb conjugations (and common conversation questions that utilize that skill) as well as practice with different tenses, specifically present and past. And then in the second half of the course, we will get into the future tense as well as a few more complex structures that I also think you'll find really helpful. Overall the goal of Level Two is to provide a deeper understanding of the language, including the tools we will put to use to become conversational in the language.

Main Course

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 to real conversation. 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.

Main Course

This course follows the same format as level #3, discussing various topics, with a focus on more advanced topics and structures. There is also an over-arching goal in level #4 of learning how to tell stories about things that "have happened" in the past, so you will find that a lot of the topics relate to various aspects of a person's past, i.e. childhood, school, injuries, that sort of stuff.
