  • Easy-to-understand explanations of how the language works, so you can improve efficiently and avoid wasting time being confused about things (a common stumbling block for early learners!)
  • Taught by a native English-speaker who, in 2003, started exactly where you are now, and over the last decade has become known for helping make simple sense of a seemingly "difficult" language
  • Get effective and fun speaking-practice sessions with our ever-helpful native Korean teachers, and ensure you improve your ability to actually SAY everything you're learning
  • Incredibly flexible (and highly effective!) methods and class times to allow you learn and improve at times and a pace that fits perfectly into YOUR schedule and learning style

Here is more information on the registration process:

  • Step #1: Create your account above

Complete the form above to begin the registration process.

NOTE: Your initial month has been covered by Xplore Asia, so there is no need for payment. Should you wish to move on beyond your first month, as an Xplore Asia member, you are also welcome to a 20% discount off of our regular rates.

  • Step #2: Check your email and send us your "availability"

Once you create your account above, you're going to receive TWO emails: (1) a "welcome" email which has some important info about the classes, and (2) an "availability" email, with instructions on how to submit your availability to us.  Please follow those instructions exactly as they are laid out to ensure we can find a class for you.

  • Step #3: We work together to establish your level 

Once we have received your "availability" email, we will respond and begin the process of establishing your current level / experience.  The goal here is to find an appropriate starting point / class in the program that you'll be happy with and will help you improve in an efficient manner, i.e. challenge you, but not overwhelm you.

  • Step #4: We create a practice-session group for you

Once we have all your registration information and the registration deadline has passed, our team will begin putting the groups the together, and email out your specific class details when it is complete.

NOTE: you can and should use this time to begin watching / studying the material from your starting class, so that you are prepared and ready to practice when your class time arrives.

  • Step #5: Have your first practice session

Once your class day and time arrives (the week of April 12th), you will have your first practice session. You will have ONE practice session at the same day and time each week, for a total of four weeks.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  to help you get the most out of the program, and as a show of respect toward your teacher and peers, it is very important that you begin go through the study material (videos, etc) in the week leading up to your practice session, so that you are familiar with the material when you arrive, and then you can really focus on PRACTICING everything you learn.  To

Here are the resources we include to help you learn and improve as efficiently as possible:

  • Video Lectures
  • Each class comes complete with videos (recorded in a live class so it’s like you’re actually sitting there with the other students). Typically (where applicable) there is a video for each section of the class, including:
  • A review/oral test of the previous class (except for the first class, 'cause there's nothing to review!)
  • The target vocabulary for the day
  • A reading of the lesson, to work on our pronunciation of the alphabet we just learned, and to introduce examples of the concepts we are going to focus on for the class
  • Explanations of the target concepts IN PLAIN, EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND English
  • A Q&A session where the students practice what we covered in the class
  • The "Language Booster Pack" that you can download, and that contains everything else needed to supplement you’re learning, including:
  • The main lesson / handout
  • These are the exact same handouts we use in the class videos so you can follow along perfectly, just like you're in the class. They contain the example sentences and structures each class focuses on and builds around, and they are yours to keep and improve with.
  • Workbook / Practice Pages
  • Workbook pages (with answer key) from each class that you can download, print off, use to check your understanding and consolidate everything you're learning in the videos.
  • Mp3 Files
  • Mp3-file recordings of the target sentences of each class, recorded by a native-Korean speaker, that you can save to your computer or mp3-player and use to improve your listening as well as pronunciation.
  • Slides
  • These slides are what the teachers use in your live speaking-practice sessions, to help you practice and improve your speaking fluency and confidence. We include these in your download pack so that you can preview exactly what you’ll be practicing, should you like.

And along with the digital resources to help you learn, you’re also getting…

  • FOUR live practice sessions with a Korean teacher
  • These practice sessions will be at the same time each week.  The specific day and time will be set around YOUR schedule and availability. Upon registering above, you will get instructions to your next steps, one of which will be to submit your “availability”.  We will use that to find a class day and time that works for you. Please note that putting together groups of people from different times and availabilities can be challenging, so we kindly ask that you please follow the instructions exactly as we have laid them out for you.  Thanks!

And lastly, please note...

While we do rely on automation to streamline operations, myself and our team are real people behind all of the emails you'll receive upon registering.  So any questions or concerns you might have (regarding the material learned in the videos, the classes and schedules, or anything at all!), please feel free to reply and ask or share anything that's on your mind, and we'll be happy to help.  Thanks!

Have questions?

Feel free to email us at info@KoreanDigitalAcademy.com, and we'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. And if you can, please reference Xplore Asia in your email so we know you are with them, and we can provide accurate info.
