I’m really glad that I chose Jiyhe as my teacher for learning Korean. Even though I’m just taking the lessons for fun, I feel that she has helped me to start building a solid foundation. Each lesson is well balanced in terms of review and new material so I don’t feel overwhelmed. She incorporates grammar, speaking, vocabulary, listening exercises and writing as well as cultural and social etiquette tips. Highly recommend!

Jihye is an amazing teacher, I am a slow learner who has dyslexia, and she is so patient and kind. She is helping with pronunciation and cares for her students very much. If you take a class, I recommend her very much, she wants to make sure all her students feel confident in themselves while taking this.

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!

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 :)

I've had four lessons with Cheol Hong. I am a complete beginner and he has provided the structure, learning materials, and pronunciation correction that I was not able to ascertain with self-study. He's extremely kind and encouraging and makes learning a pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
Diane
I have been taking lessons with Instructor Cheol Hong for about a month and am very happy with my choice. I felt that his experience in the Korean workplace set himself apart from what other instructors offered, which is what influenced my decision. I am Korean-American, so I am very familiar with hearing and speaking the language, but wanted to properly learn to read and write to a more intermediate/advanced level. We both agreed it was best to start from the beginning and breeze through what I can until I hit my limit. I've also been challenged to write everyday, which has helped him gauge my level, and read newspaper articles, which are definitely way above my ability, but clearly great for improving. Instructor Cheol Hong is very patient, always makes sure you're following along/comprehending, and makes himself accessible throughout the week. I always look forward to my lessons!
Casey
I have basic but scattered language skills in Korean, and Mr. Park is very mindful of this and I'm happy with the pace and content of the lessons. I appreciate the time he takes to explain not just grammatical rules but social/pragmatic rules of usage.

"I've been taking lessons with Suyeon for 5 weeks now and it has made a huge difference. Suyeon is patient, friendly, and encouraging. She makes the material easy to understand and is happy to answer questions. I began our lessons with almost no knowledge of the language and already I have learned how to construct basic sentences, ask and answer simple questions, politely order food, count, tell time, and conjugate verbs. I actually learned more in our first lesson than in the entire month I tried to teach myself, because even though I was very motivated to learn, much of the information I found on the internet was either incorrect or incomplete. So happy with my decision to hire Suyeon. I definitely recommend it!"

"If only I could give more than 5 stars. Youngju is the absolute best instructor ever, she does a great job tailoring her lessons to the student's comfort and needs, and is available to answer questions seemingly 24/7. I texted her while I was in Korea, expecting her to reply when it was morning in the states, and she answered within 10 minutes. Youngju, when do you sleep?
I've tried out lessons in many subjects with many instructors on this site and have yet to find one who lives up to Youngju. I'm spoiled. Thanks so much for all your help Youngju!"

I have learned so much; after my first class I could already read the alphabet and now I am forming everyday sentences! My mom can text me in Korean and I can reply back to her as well. I'm very excited to continue my lessons with Youngju! She is a very sweet and patient teacher! I definitely recommend you to choose her as your teacher! She will teach you at your own pace and if very helpful with pronunciation. Can't wait to see what I can learn in my next coming lessons (:"

My daughter is learning more in 1/2 hr a week of Korean than she is learning in her french language class at school. I'm thrilled that my daughter is so engaged in learning a language, we feel very lucky to have found Youngju!"
