About Gun

Do have hard time remember korean? Don't worry when you repeat something more than 30 times, you will never forget it. The class won't be fun if I just repeat a word 30 times, right? you probably can memorize them all before then. But I'll help you to repeat the words, and you don't have to consid

I am really enjoying having Woo as an instructor. He spends a lot of time working with pronunciation in the beginning, and targeting where I was weakest. I have been extremely impressed with his instruction technique, and already feel like I am learning a lot. Definitely recommend him as an instructor.

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

About Suyoun

Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007. From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun. H

She's one of the best teachers that I've ever had in my life. Her classes motivated me a lot in continuing to learn Korean. She's very friendly and approachable. She understood my time constraints very well and helped to adjust the schedule accordingly to make the classes a great experience.

May I ask you first, what are your reasons for learning Korean? Are you interested in learning Korean but don’t know where to begin? Are you learning Korean for your career, or to work in Korea? Do you want to understand Korean songs or TV shows better? Everyone may have a different reason, and I'm curious to hear yours! Please let me know so I may help you to reach your goals faster.
Korean is a beautiful language, but it is very different from English in structure grammar. Also, there are lots of pronunciations that will require some familiarization. I will help you get past some of these obstacles and to stay motivated to keep learning until you reach your goals!

Seriously love Panjin. Her lessons are well thought out and she’s always so much fun. We’ve been learning to read Korean and say some common phrases. It’s been great and looking forward to future lessons. She’s always shares videos and pdfs as learning aides. She’s also good about recording our lessons so we can look back!
