You are just one step away from being a part of our next batch.
Have you learned the basics of Korean language but feel like your progress is stuck after a point?
Highly motivated learners like you are able to learn the Korean script Hangeul and beginner level grammar through self-study. They watch lessons on YouTube, download some books, joins some Korean learning groups and that's more than enough for them to learn the basics and speak and understand basic phrases and sentences. But the main challenge comes after that. Most learners feel like they are stuck and are not able to improve their Korean language skills after a certain point, no matter how hard they try. Whether they want to apply for a scholarship in Korea or they want to get a job in Korean language field, they require at least TOPIK level 3 but even the most successful learners find it difficult to go beyond TOPIK level 2 grammar and vocabulary through self-study.
We totally understand your situation
Learning Korean Online through self-study is definitely possible but there are limitations. If you are learning Korean just for fun, YouTube lessons and Online Korean sites should be more than sufficient for you. But if you are planning to go to Korea for higher study or for work or even if you are planning to make a career in Korean or Korea-related company in India, it's not easy to reach that level through just self-study. Below are the reasons why -
- You don't have anyone to check if you are speaking or writing correctly in Korean.
- You can search new words and phrases online but it's very likely that you will use them in incorrect way, if there is no one to teach you proper context-based use.
- You don't have material suited to your level to do listening and reading practice.
- You can read and write but you don't know how to practice speaking. You wish there was an opportunity to talk with other learners or a native person in Korean and if someone was there to correct you when you made mistakes.
- Beyond learning Korean, you wish someone could guide you about professional certification in Korean (TOPIK) as well as scholarships and work opportunities in Korea. You don't really know how to proceed if you want to study or work in Korea.
All these barriers can be really frustrating.
In our Korean Level 2 Course, we are going to help you with all these obstacles
Certificate Course in Korean - Level 2
This is an online course but in many ways it is better and more effective than even full-time Korean courses at universities and institutes. One reason is that this course is developed and taught by people who are not only top level experts in Korean language but also are passionate about teaching Korean and helping learners like you achieve their dreams.
The course includes live classes conducted in a real-time environment and student-focused communicative teaching methodologies.
The curriculum, study material and class activities are custom designed for the needs of the students in batch and are continuously monitored and modified as per the progress of learners.
This course is suitable for you if -
- If you can already read and write Hangeul, know very basic vocabulary and can make sentences using basic grammar (verb endings like present, past and future tenses, 고 싶어요, (으)ㄹ 수 있어요 etc., basic connectors like 고, 지만, 때문에, 아서/어서 and basic particles like 은/는, 이/가, 에/에서, 와/과, 로, 부터/까지 etc.).If you have any doubt whether it is suitable for you or not, please mail or message us.
- If you want to make your career in the field of Korean language and want to strengthen your Korean grammar and vocabulary and pass TOPIK test.
- If you already have or are pursuing a degree in another field but want to improve your chances of getting a job opportunity in a Korean company by learning and getting a certificate in Korean.

- You want to be fluent in day to day Korean communication by improving your listening and speaking skills.

This course may not be suitable for you if -
- If you are not motivated or committed enough to learn Korean and to use it to enhance your career and just want to get a certificate. Let me be very honest with you. Just a certificate is not going to help you if don't work hard and improve your language skills. So join this only if you are really ready to put in time and efforts to learn Korean.
- If you can't give at least 2 hour in a week (apart from class time) to Korean study. We will be assigning you tasks like memorizing words and phrases, translating sentences and so on.
