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!
