I am a native Korean and my home town is Korea. I have been teaching Korean since 2015. If you are interested in traveling to Korea or learning Korean culture, such as K-pop or K- drama, I could provide a curriculum based on that. We will start with how to read and write the Korean alphabet and learn how to speak some simple Korean phrases.
