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.

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!

My first session with Panjin went very well. She assessed my needs and current knowledge level of the Korean language. It was a learning experience for both of us. I'm excited to what's in store for future sessions.

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!

Great teacher! Just finished my first lesson and I'm very happy with what I learned.

I've been learning Korean with Cheol Hong since April (it's August 30th). He is an incredibly dedicated teacher, patient, understanding and funny. He encourages me to practice my Korean every day (which I do) and he carefully reviews each submission between lessons to help me get better. I'm adopted and wanted to learn Korean so I could better connect to my Korean heritage (my grandmother is Korean) and I have learned so much during my studies. I would highly recommend Cheol Hong to anyone who is interested in learning Korean. He's the best!
Jessica
My daughter's first lesson with Mr. Park was wonderful. He was thorough, engaging and gave her lots of encouragement throughout the lesson. The material he sent afterward to help with her homework between lessons will be very helpful. She can't wait for her next session with Mr. Park.
Corinne
I've been taking lessons from Mr. Park for a few months now, and I've been really enjoying them! I've taken group classes before, but this is my first 1:1 lesson experience, and Mr. Park does a great job catering and personalizing his approach to what you're interested in, even if it's not quite language related! For example, I told him I was looking to study Korean art history, and he sent me additional resources specific to that, and sometimes even devotes time to discuss different facets of it if it comes up in the lesson. He also provides a deep dive into the Sino/Native-Korean roots of different words which I personally find helpful and interesting. He is patient, encouraging, and personable, and does a fantastic job explaining things even if you don't quite get it the first time. Highly recommend!
