Learning Korean in Philadelphia

Are you thinking about taking Korean lessons in Philadelphia? You may be more than seven thousand miles away from Korea, but there are actually some wonderful opportunities, right here in Philadelphia, to explore the Korean language and culture.

You don’t have to travel too far to experience Korean culture, food, artwork, and ethnic treasures. To learn about the history of the Korean Peninsula, head to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to see the “Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty” exhibit.

If you want to learn more about Korean culture, don’t miss the annual Korean Folk Festival of Philadelphia. The event was created to spread cultural awareness, and it’s a fun family celebration which includes food, games, and activities.

When you’re taking Korean lessons in Philadelphia, you can take a fun, educational study break by trying some authentic Korean food. Head to Phillyktown, where there are a number of restaurants and bakeries. Plus, this is a great opportunity to practice your Korean by speaking and interacting with others! If you want to work on pronunciation, there are some great places to sing karaoke, so you can have some fun, show off your stellar vocal chords, and learn some new vocabulary.

One of the best ways to learn the language is to practice speaking and interacting with others. This could be fluent Korean speakers, or people just like you, who want to learn a new language. There are some Korean language Meetup groups (http://www.meetup.com/korean-37/) where you can find new friends, study buddies, and conversation partners.

These are just a few of the ways you can supplement your learning and experience Korean culture in Philadelphia. Although learning a new language can be difficult, it can also be a very fun and rewarding experience.

When you’re taking Korean lessons in Philadelphia, don’t forget to have fun and take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities to explore Korean culture. 행운을 빌어요 (good luck!)

Perfect temperament for working with my 7 year old. Sung Je K adapts to my sons whims and, when needed, drew him back into the lesson using them. Ex. My son, on a suger high from a holliday party at school, started blurting out random words. Sung Je K. Took those words, and used them in the lesson. It was fantastic. Sung Je K is attentive and wants his students to learn. A+ teacher!

I came to USA at age of 15 and learned English in Mid-West most of my life. I love using idioms in both language. In Korean up-to-dated direct translation of "you're welcome" is "what?" why? because they meant "oh no what are you talking about? don't mention it"
Let's learn the language while having fun. Take a lesson from me.

About Johan
Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.

I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.

I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.

Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

About Suyoun
Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007.
From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.

How can I make the classes fun? Along with language classes, I will share lots of Korean culture and history, so the students have always interest in the Korean culture. Once you are interested in that culture, it will be inevitable not to learn the language! Always remember! Language and Culture. These are 2 things that never be separated.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable to help lead me in the right direction in my Korean studies. I've been studying Korean at home and Herena has been incredibly helpful as a tutor! I went in knowing a tiny bit of very basic Hangul. Herena worked with me and with the book I had already purchased for studies. She is knowledgeable and personable. As a native Korean speaker I trust that she knows what she is talking about. Herena is also very friendly and relatable. Super cool that she uses the topics I am interested in for the lessons and offering cultural and historical facts as well. I've learned so much with her, you can't go wrong if she's your tutor!

Hi. Thanks for checking my profile. My majors were Japanese literature and English literature. After I graduated, I went to get a TESOL cerfication. I've been teaching Korean, Japanese and English for 10 years and I can make students speak the language very quickly. I like to have a fun lesson using many different kinds of materials such as TV dramas, music, conversations, magazines etc. I interact with my student more personal level not just reading and memorizing. I'm looking forward to meeting you soon.
