Recently my language partner left to get a job. So I decided to leave my language exchange at Culcom in favor of an actual instructed Korean course at GNUCR near Gangnam-gu Office Station (Line 7). I’m pretty excited about the location, because its so close to me. I didn’t find out about this course until recently so I missed the deadline, but they kindly let me register late. I’ll start the course this evening. I am pretty excited. I hope I’ll learn more Korean. The course is 10 weeks and costs 300,000 Won ($300.00). They use the Active Korean book series, but this can be purchased at the school. 


Learning Korean: Which Program is Right for You?

Considering that fact that Korean is often regarded as one of the most difficult languages for native English speakers to learn, those that move to Korea might be intimidated to begin the arduous and often frustrating journey of learning the local language.  But, there can be many benefits to learning Korean.  Getting a grasp on the basics makes expat life far more comfortable and allows one to better understand the culture and feel more integrated with society.  Then there are the added bonuses of more job opportunities and bragging rights.  Because, let's face it... how many non-Koreans can actually say that they speak Korean?

Committing oneself to studying is the first and often most difficult step to learning Korean.  So what about after that?

For those of us who grew up in a country where there is little to no priority on learning a second language, it's difficult to know which study methods and programs work best to memorize vocabulary words, comprehend unfamiliar sentence structures, and perfect one's pronunciation.  And because everyone learns differently, it might take a bit of trial and error to figure out which approach is best for you.

Although I am still very much a beginner, I have attempted a number of techniques and attended a variety of classes to find what works for me.  Below are my personal experiences, including the pros and cons of each.
