Learn Korean language in a systematic way

Learn Korean with TOPIK GUIDE

From Korean alphabet to having basic conversation in less than 30 days

Learn Korean from Scratch - Level 1A

The curriculum of this course has been systematically designed to help you learn Korean language in the most effective and efficient way possible.

This course is very different from the typical Korean lessons on YouTube and some websites that make you memorize random Korean phrases about different situations and make you believe that you are learning the language.

Memorizing words and phrases like a parrot is not what language learning is.

Learning a language means to understand how a language works and to be able to express your thoughts by framing your own sentences.

 And that is what we will learn in this course.


Is this course Right for me?

This course is for absolute beginners. So it's the right fit for you if you don't know anything at all about Korean language or if you have just learned how to read and write Hangeul letters but don't know how words and sentences are made in Korean. The course will be useful for you if - 

  • If you are interested in Korea, Korean language or Korean culture
  • If you are a K-Pop or K-Drama fan and want to enjoy them more by learning some Korean
  • If you plan to travel to Korea some time
  • If you want to study in Korea (want to apply for a Korean scholarship)
  • If you want to work in Korea or in a Korean company (like LG, Samsung, Hyundai) in your country
  • If you are already studying or working in Korea

Who can take this course?

  • The Course assumes you don't know anything about Korean language and will start from zero, that is, Korean script Hangeul. 
  • Anyone, from a 5 year old kid to a 95 years old grandma, can learn Korean through this course.

I know language learning is difficult

If anyone is promising you that they will make you learn a language without any serious studying and just by doing some fun activities or memorizing phrases, they have either never learned a language themselves or they are just lying. This course doesn't promise that you will learn Korean without studying. We don't even try extra hard to make our language lessons 'funny'. Our lessons may be dry (as any type of learning is, at times) and you will have to put in some time and effort to get the best results out of the course.

Many Korean language instructors have very good knowledge of Korean language but they don't know how to teach things in a systematic order. It's either because they themselves didn't learn the language in a systematic way or because they don't know how to teach a foreign language effectively. And that's the reason most of the learners are not able to go beyond the first few lessons. Most just give up at the alphabet itself because either the teacher is not able to explain the pronunciation rules properly or they teach so many rules that the students feel overwhelmed.

This course has been designed by an expert who himself has not only learned Korean from scratch and achieved near native level fluency but also did formal study and research on how to teach Korean as a foreign language. This course uses tried and tested methods to teach you the concepts of Korean language. Yes, you will have to put in more effort than when learning through random YouTube videos but you will never feel that you are not able to understand something at any point in the course.
