안녕하세요 여러분!

저는 한국에서 태어나 현재 미국에서 왕성하게 한국어 선생님으로 활동하고 있습니다.
This is Ms. Park, a certified Korean tutor. I am a native Korean speaker and also a Korean language teacher at a Korean-American language school in the U.S.

제가 여러분에게 3가지 질문이 있습니다.
I have three questions for you.

1. 한국어 알파벳을 빠른 시간내에 숙달하고 싶으세요?
Do you want to master the Korean alphabet quickly?

2. 그럼 혹시 자음, 모음, 낱자, 문법 등 어려운 용어를 암기하세요?
Then, do you memorize terminology words such as consonants, vowels, and grammar?

3. 이미 한국어 공부를 시작했으면, 쓰기나 읽기, 말하기와 듣기를 따로 하세요?
If you have already started studying Korean, do you write or read, speak and listen separately?

The answer above is that if you get the right teaching method, you can realize it. Only TakeLessons can find Ms. Park, a certified Korean tutor.

Oh, wait! One last thing, but not the least is to enjoy your mistakes to improve your Korean language skills! :)

I hope I work with you soon.

Private Korean Teacher

Quinton works primarily with beginner to intermediate students putting an emphasis on grammar in a fun and interactive way. After living in South Korea for two years Quint realized that grammar structure was one of the main sticking points that made learning Korean so difficult for English speakers. As a result he uses these practices to help students take their language study to an entirely new level. 
Quinton has studied multiple languages ranging from Portuguese and Spanish to Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese. As a native English speaker himself Quint has learned skills and techniques to explain Grammar in a simple yet relatable way for other English speakers. Quint’s philosophy is that the most effective way to learn a language is to have fun with it by talking about the things that spark your interest rather than dry lessons that can cause you to lose interest.

Jay is a great, patient, kind teacher. He was very considerate and willing to teach, considering my goals and level, stretching when he sees that is possible, but respecting my time. I super recommend him.
Tina B.
Jay was fantastic for my first lesson. He was easy going and sweet. He took time to understand what I was all about and what I was looking for out of my lessons. He encouraged me to speak some Korean and try out some words, but kept most of our communication in English so I could to understand and follow along. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a low pressure learning environment.

"I want to review again because I just finished my 5th class with Youngju! (:
I have learned so much; after my first class I could already read the alphabet and now I am forming everyday sentences! My mom can text me in Korean and I can reply back to her as well. I'm very excited to continue my lessons with Youngju! She is a very sweet and patient teacher! I definitely recommend you to choose her as your teacher! She will teach you at your own pace and if very helpful with pronunciation. Can't wait to see what I can learn in my next coming lessons (:"

"I love having Youngju as my Korean teacher! She is a great teacher. I've been taking lessons from her for a few months now, after trying to learn on my own, and I definitely feel like I've improved. She explains things well and I am understanding the language a lot better than I did before. She's also quite flexible if you have to reschedule a lesson. I took a trip to Korea and she prepared for me some useful phrases the lesson before I went and it helped so much. I was able to speak in mostly Korean while I was there and it went well. I was able to do some shopping, take the subway/taxis/buses, and order food in Korean with very little problems. I'm excited to keep learning with her!"

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!)
