ABOUT THE CLASS

Are you visiting or living in Korea and need a practical Korean class to learn the expressions you can use immediately? This class is for you: a Korean conversation kit made by a college-level and online Korean teacher.

There are four classes for Korean Conversation Kit as a series: self-introduction, giving directions and navigating transportation, ordering food and shopping, home search and repair which you will learn through simulated dialogue, grammar and vocabulary explanation, pattern practice, and culture or travel tips.

This second class in the series will teach you expressions to find your ways and use the public transportation in Korea: Where is...?, It's outside/inside/etc., Go straight/right/left, Please go to... (in a taxi), Does this bus go to...?, Where do I get off to go to...? and so forth. You will also learn essential vocabulary to talk about location and direction. In addition, there are practical travel tips for the Korean public transportation system including how to catch taxis or buy transportation cards. This class is recommended for those who know the Korean alphabet and the basic sentence structure including the present tense ending ~아/어(요). I will guide you through various examples and pattern practice, so hop on and get ready to explore!

Through learning Korean language expressions, you will also learn diverse cultural knowledge that you need to know to navigate Korean public transportation. Each lesson includes essential cultural tips or practical travel tips for you to use while you navigate Korea.

❷ Full of Expertise

from a Korean Linguist with a Ph.D.

I am not only a college-level Korean instructor but also a Korean linguist with a Ph.D. degree in Korean linguistics. Recently, I have been creating online Korean language contents on YouTube and Instagram and teaching online group courses. It’s always been my goal as a teacher to blend the Korean linguistic knowledge that is essential to understand the language into my teaching in an easy and understandable way. I designed this class to be fun and easy but also packed with information.

I am a Korean teacher and a linguist. After 8 years of teaching Korean at U.S. universities, I began my online teaching journey on Instagram and YouTube as 'Korean Jream'. I majored in Korean linguistics and Korean language education for my Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. which shaped my teaching style. My goal has always been blending the linguistic knowledge in my teaching in an easy way to help students see the rationale behind the expression they are learning so that they can build the strong foundation for Korean learning.

I have always been a language and culture lover, and my experience of learning English as an exchange student in the U.S. ignited my passion for language teaching and living with people from different cultures. That is how my journey as a Korean language teacher began, and I am now living the life I dreamed of. I am surrounded by people from different backgrounds as a foreign language teacher who is living abroad. I feel honored to be part of people's Korean learning journey to speaking the Korean of their Jream!
