STEP #2 (of 3):

Please select your level

NOTE: for best results, choose the level that best matches with your current ability to SPEAK Korean.  If you need help, look below each option for more details about each level and who it is best suited for.

Level #1(classes #1-12)

LEVEL #1: Who it's for…

Level #1 is for you if:

  • you are a complete beginner, or...
  • you know a few words and expressions yet don't really know or understand the underlying structures behind what you're saying, or...
  • have studied Korean for a while yet still really struggle to say much at all (and so if you choose this level, while some of the content we cover may be review for you, developing the ability to actually speak it will be enormously beneficial to you

Here's exactly what it covers…

Level #1 is all about getting you "comfortable" in Korean.

Comfortable with the way it works, the way it sounds, how the sentences build, some basic attachments and some VERY common verbs, and ultimately to get you comfortable forming basic sentences, questions, and answers to those questions.

The first two classes start right in the beginning and teach exactly how to read and write Korean ('cause that's definitely the FIRST thing you should learn if you're a complete beginner)..

Then class #3 is our first class on how to SPEAK Korean and covers the basic sentence structure and breakdowns the verb '이다' (the Korean verb 'to be') and you learn how to talk about and identify objects.

From there the class continues to build upon itself giving you not only in-depth breakdowns of the basic sentence but utilizes really useful phrases that you can begin to use IMMEDIATELY in conversation.

In class #4 we learn about our FIRST set of numbers and how to deal with money.

In class #5 we discuss jobs and descriptions of people, and also how to use 'and' between nouns and sentences (yes, they are different!)

In class #6 we get into the second counting system and how to ask and answer what time it is as well as some other really common uses for this particular counting system.

In class #7 we learn the negative form of the verb we've been using up until now (이다); this is the last class we will be using this verb.

Class #8 is an introduction to the next two MOST COMMON and VERSATILE verbs in the entire language, 있다 and 없다. If you don't know these verbs yet, don't worry, you will, 'cause you will hear and use them ALL THE TIME!!

In class #9 we practice asking and answering 'where' things are talking about 'locations' and prepositions of place.

Class #10 covers in invaluable skill: we learn to how to count and ask for things, i.e. ordering food and talking about specific amounts of things

Then in class #11 we take things a little deeper…

First we learn a very common way to say 'I have' and we also get into our first tense change and learn how to speak in the past tense (knowing this one thing will literally double the amount of Korean you can say)

And then class #12 is when we begin our 'deep dive' into becoming "conversational"; we learn our first - and easily the most widely-used - GROUP of verbs, the 하다 verbs.

So again, I recommend you taking this level if:

  • you are a complete beginner, or...
  • you know a few words and expressions yet don't really know or understand the underlying structures behind what you're saying, or...
  • have studied Korean for a while yet still really struggle to say much at all (and so if you choose this level, while some of the content we cover may be review for you, developing the ability to actually speak it will be enormously beneficial to you.

This level will give you the understanding, speaking and confidence boost you're looking for and will ultimately prepare you perfectly for level 2 where we continue our 'deep dive' and take your Korean to the next level by multiplying - not just adding on top of - the amount of stuff you can say.

It doesn't matter if you're coming in with no Korean, or lots of vocab but no idea of sentence structure like me ... this course will make you better."

Level #2(classes #13-24)

LEVEL #2: Who it's for…

Level #2 is for you if:

  • you can say some basic things and have a decent understanding of what you're saying
  • want to go deeper and become more "conversational"
  • would like to improve your ability to speak in different tenses (i.e. past, future, present perfect, etc)
  • would like to move past very basic sentences into slightly more complex structures (last quarter of L2 focuses on this)

Here's exactly what it covers…

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.

Class #13 is an extension of class #12 and goes deeper into 하다 verbs as well as how to speak in the present continuous tense about things that are happening now.

Class #14-19 focus on what I call 'The Nuts and Bolts' of Korean; the most important skill you will need to take your Korean to the next level (verb conjugation).

Throughout classes #14-19 there is also a strong focus on improving our ability to speak in tenses already learned, i.e. past and present tenses.

And then in the second half of the course, we will get into the future tense, present perfect tense as well as very useful yet slightly more complex sentence structures that I also think you'll find really helpful, that will give you some extremely effective conversational "firepower" and  really exemplify exactly why the 'nuts n' bolts' were so important.

By the end of level #2, along with the ability to actually SPEAK what you've learned, you will have an amazingly deep understanding of how Korean works and will possess ALL the tools needed to become fluent in Korean.

Yeah, level two sounds right for me! Sign me up!(click here to register)
