  • 안녕하세요. 제 이름이 페드로입니다. Sir, I wanted to know how can I apply for the Korean government scholarship program as I live in USA, mainly in Texas. However, I don’t have any connections to help me, but I have decent experience with the Korean language and I want to be involved in Korea and making a life there. Some how, some way. Please help. Email:

  • I would like to thank you for such great efforts and very resourceful contents you provide here on your website! It is very beneficial and a great help for me! I was googling about TOPIK and I had no idea about it and I read through some of the contents here, they are amazing! (only read for less than 1 hour, so I have not yet read the other contents). I love the 100 adjectives, 100&500 verbs! I also just downloaded the TOPIK 52nd Test I&II just to get familiar with it. If I am in intermediate and advance I would love to buy the TOPIK Complete guide but I am still very basic and pretty occupied with my thesis now, i hope i can finish it soon and start my journey to tackle korean! yeah!

    Keep up the good work!

  • Sir your doing great job to teach the students who are interested to learn Korean language like me. I saw your YouTube videos it is very helpful for me thanks alot. Keep it up sir and I’ll try to join your online classes very soon.
