I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it"
Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.

This was only my first less with Johan -- it was such fun, I felt so encouraged and can't wait for my next. He's just terrific! Very kind and clear and again - the key word - encouraging! A great teacher!
Christine
Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

I want to take the opportunity to say that my Korean teacher, Youngju Lee, has been an amazing teacher for me this past year. I was altogether without any ability to speak or write the Korean language at the beginning, not one syllable could I understand, but there I was, engaged to a Korean girl whose parents were quite conservative. I had to set them at ease and show them I welcomed Korean language and culture into my life. Ms. Lee started me with the basics, the written alphabet, the vowel and consonant pronunciations. She was always clear and patient and her lessons were well paced to my achievement; it was a well conceived plan, each lesson leading into the next and there is always a sense of accomplishment as each lesson was integrated into the previous. Since Ms. Lee is a highly educated native of Korea, she knew everything, all the intimate details about greetings and levels of respect in Korean culture. My meeting with my wife's parents was a success, and they were very pleased by how well I understood the Korean side of things. I remember at dinner handing the kimchi bowl to my father in law I remembered: two hands, not one! My bows were well rehearsed as well. We had a great time together and I owe it to Ms. Lee's teaching. I have enjoyed our time together and will continue to do so in the future. Thank You, Ms. Lee!

Very patient and helpful - she works with me at my level while encouraging me to get better.

감사합니다!

Youngju 선생님 is a fantastic teacher so far! She works quickly to figure out what level you are at and how to meet your needs, and she is patient and fun ^.^

I had the hardest time with pronunciation and she was able to help me really hear how the words were supposed to be pronounced and made me feel more confident. She made every lesson fun and enjoyable — every teacher should be like her."

"Amazing instructor! I have taken Korean classes before but it was a struggle. The first day of my tutoring, he explained the basics in such an easy and uncomplicated way. I learned more from that first lesson than I ever had before! Arron also does an excellent job of tailoring the lessons for me. He reviews what I do know quickly and spends more time on the things I don't understand or am struggling to understand. Again he explains what I don't understand is such a simple way and even more comforting he doesn't get frustrated or make me feel dumb when I do struggle. Highly recommended!"

I was impressed at how well he explained Korean grammar--his explanation of particles was the best I've ever received from any tutor or teacher. I also appreciated how he had two nice PDF textbooks to use as the core of our class. Strongly recommended!"
