Our review:

The first thing we noticed about this website, is that it is easy to navigate. The layout of the course is simple, and works in a structured way.

The first course is “HANGEUL BOOTCAMP”, where the basics of Hangeul are taught with detailed, yet easy to understand explanations and introductions. The use of playable voice recordings enables you to practice physically, and helps you to improve and work on your pronunciation. Everything starts off relatively simple.

Wondering how well you’ve done? Each module has an end of unit test, which can be re-taken three times. All grammatical rules are explained very well! This is something that can sometimes throw you off, if you don’t comprehend it completely. The language is simple, and does not make things confusing; everything is relevant and straight to the point; and as everything is illustrated so well, the course triggers you to learn by the visuals, and the repetition of sounds.

There are also sections on the website that enable you to take your studies further. The most helpful section is the Community tab! You can add friends, join groups and have discussions within different threads and forums. The blog is also very appealing, as it contains articles that provide you with further information and support, as well as useful tips, and fun facts.

It doesn’t stop there, as there are E-Books that can be purchased too!

With something for everyone, Teach Me Korean definitely appeals to all, as you can learn in a number of different ways. There is always a support system there, and you will never feel alone!

So pali pali! 빨리빨리. Join now!
