"Sensei seems to really enjoy teaching. As both a native speaker and a longtime resident of the US, she is able to bridge the cultures in a way that many instructors would not be able to. I have been studying with her for over six months - both in a private and college setting - and I feel that I would be hard pressed to find a better teacher. In a college setting, she is very strict and covers a lot of material in a short period of time, and those who take her courses must be prepared to expend significant time and energy for success, but those who can keep up are well equipped to continue their studies with pretty much any other teacher or course."

"This is the second review I write for this class. This time after almost a year after taking regular classes. The classes are dynamic, entertaining and well-structured. Yet, they are also flexible to the student's needs. In addition to this, I had the chance to go to Seoul for a few days a couple of weeks ago. Before going, Youngju gave me lots of good recommendations and make herself available for any questions I could have. Once in Korea, I was very happy to see I could interact with people in Korean, read everything, and understand. I was able to speak to waiters, hotel staff, shopkeepers, and when I got lost, to a young gentleman who kindly showed me the way to the metro station. All these in just one year of classes (1hr/week). This was truly an awesome experience and renewed my determination to learn Korean and keep learning with and from Youngju. Not only a great teacher and great class, also great results!"
