I have only been taking Korean lessons with Youngju Lee for a few months but am improving at a rapid pace. She emphasizes thinking in Korean and stretching comprehension by constructing sentences in Korean, a challenging aspect that allows me to memorize more effectively and write more fluently! We move quickly, but I am always able to clarify ideas I don’t understand or request specific vocabulary I am interested in. Last night, I ordered food at a Korean restaurant in Korean, which was daunting at first but ultimately motivating. (The waitress was both surprised and impressed, and said that my pronunciation was good!) Youngju presents so much cultural background and is such a kind individual. I look forward to having more lessons with her!
