I'm hopeless when it comes to new people, but if they're nice, I automatically warm up. Jihye takes her time with me and I feel a bit more confident. She's perfect for people who need time to get out of their shell

Such a fun first lesson! Arron sent comprehensive course materials, and the lesson was well planned and appropriate to my abilities. He was patient with me, and included lots of fun word games and stories for the vocabulary we worked on. I can't wait for the next lesson!

Suyeon is wonderful. She not only helped me learn enough Korean to survive an impromptu move to Korea, but also put my fears to rest about what to expect. There are so many out dated and incorrect blogs out there. It was a game of "Truth, Myth, or Lie." I highly recommended her for your Korean studies.

So to give some info on me, I have two jobs and I really want to become fluent in Korean, and Youngju is one of the most patient people on this earth, because she is easy to work with on schedule and she is also a great teacher, my understanding of Korean grows from week to week. She understands where your level is at and where to start from Lesson plans come with homework and she gives you tools so that way you can work on Korean throughout the week . On top of being a good teacher she is incredibly nice and has good sense of humor. Would highly recommend.
