Good course. I’ve benefitted from this by not only practicing proper formal speech usage, but also by learning more cultural phrases and facts that you can’t necessarily learn in a class setting. My teacher was also super kind and bilingual (which is important). She made learning so much more fun and personalised.

Even before the lesson I was impressed by the the materials you sent, which allowed me to prepare for the conversation. I got A LOT of speaking practice. To the point where my tutor could interrupt me slightly more often when I made mistakes (But all of those corrections I could access in the tutor feedback after the lesson so that's great).

Thank you so much for creating this course. As a Vietnamese learner, I don’t have much access to native speakers and my school ALWAYS run out of space for students. I am super glad to have this opportunity to study Korean with my SAY teacher.
