Each lesson will be based on a theme where we will focus on specific vocabs and phrases related to it. I will also encourage you to speak in Korean during our lessons because the more you speak it, the better you will get! My goal is to help you learn the language in a fun, engaging way so that you truly enjoy learning it and make it a sustainable routine :)

We had a great time! She was kind, patient and started with the language aspects that I wanted to focus on. She offered alternative options to sayings and explained everything well. It was an excellent first meeting! Looking forward to the next lesson.

Do you want to learn Korean? understand Kpop? I'm the guy then! I just moved to LA after managing Kpop artists in Korea and now I'm teaching Korean and music here full time.

I teach in most basic, easy, and fun way for non-Korean speakers to understand. I've been teaching the past 4 years. Take 1 lesson with me and see how it goes. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Amazing Korean teacher. Very fun way of teaching. I took lesson with Chan and he was teaching me in very comfortable way. Instead of the textbook method, he was teaching me relating with korean drama as an example. much recommend 10/10 !
Jenny Lee
Great instructor. I was recommended by a friend. I've been taking lessons for 3 consecutive months and now I'm able to make basic conversation with my friends.
Lily
I had over 4 Korean lessons the past year and Chan really connected with me and helped me understand the best.

I got into Korean through knowing Kpop and all the previous teachers were very structured like school teaching but Chan taught me in quick and fun modern way.

Definitely a 10/10!

안녕하세요 여러분!
Hello, all!

This is Park, a certified Korean tutor. I am a native Korean speaker and I also was a Korean language teacher at a Korean-American language school in the U.S.

제가 여러분에게 3가지 질문이 있습니다.
I have three questions for you.

1. 한국어 알파벳을 빠른 시간내에 숙달하고 싶으세요?
Do you want to master the Korean alphabet quickly?

2. 그럼 혹시 자음, 모음, 낱자, 문법 등 어려운 용어를 암기하세요?
Then, do you memorize terminology words such as consonants, vowels, and grammar?

3. 이미 한국어 공부를 시작했으면, 쓰기나 읽기, 말하기와 듣기를 따로 하세요?
If you have already started studying Korean, do you write or read, speak and listen separately?

The answer above is that if you get the right teaching method and learning materials, you can realize it. Only TakeLessons can find Ms. Park, a certified Korean tutor.

Oh, wait! One last thing, but not the least is to enjoy your mistakes to improve your Korean language skills! :)

I hope I work with you soon.

* Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any question or ...

Learn a New Language in Los Angeles

By Silvano K. Los Angeles Korean Teacher

Los Angeles is one of the most ideal places in the United States to learn Korean. With a large population of Korean Americans, LA is one of the best cities to enjoy Korean traditions like art, food, and culture.

The Korean-American community has grown significantly since the Immigration Reform Act was passed in 1965. There are approximately 1.4 million Korean Americans in the United States, and more than 35 percent of the Korean-American population lives in California.

It’s rare to find Korean Americans who aren’t familiar with Korean speech. Language is embedded in culture, but it can be easily forgotten if cultural rituals are not practiced regularly. Korean Americans in Los Angeles try their best to hold on to their traditions, and teach Korean culture and history to future generations.

If you’re taking Korean lessons in Los Angeles, there are some fantastic places to learn about Korean culture and history. Check out the Korean Cultural Center of Los Angeles (KCCLA) for access to an extensive library of books, videos, and music. KCCLA allows guests to experience Korean traditions and history through specialized programs, sponsored events, an art gallery, and a collection of educational resources.

Los Angeles hosts numerous Korean heritage festivals throughout the year. Don’t miss the annual LA Korean Festival at Seoul International Park. Founded in 1973, the LA Korean Festival is a highly-anticipated event, and a wonderful opportunity to experience and enjoy Korean culture and history.

Speaking of Korean culture, we can’t forget about the globalization of Korean pop music (K-Pop). Remember the hit “Gangnam Style?” With over a billion YouTube views, the viral video turned Korean artist Psy into a household name. You can see some of the most famous Korean music stars perform at The Korea Times Music Festival at the Hollywood Bowl.

Learning Korean is not always easy, but you will have a better overall learning experience if you have access to the culture, history, and traditions. With so many excellent learning resources, Los Angeles is an ideal city to learn Korean. If you’re taking Korean lessons in LA, be sure to take advantage of the Korean restaurants, stores, festivals, and events, and don’t forget to have fun!
