daily life in 14 reviews

I learned more about the daily life terms and sentences.

The examples are so easy and very useful in daily life!

To speak fluently, well... Have to practice over and over again, especially if you are not using the language in daily life.

It has a 'situation approach' in which daily life experiences are used cleverly to teach vocabulary, pronunciation tips, particles and common expressions.

Although, it was only short program for the beginner like me who didn't have the fundamental of Korean language, I got a lot of the basic to the daily life vocabularies and conversations.

Thank you very much I love to learn this course it's useful and help me to communicate with Korean person in daily life Easy to understand and follow!

Daily life conversations sometimes matched with Korean dramas I watched.

muy bueno solo que al final de los 2 ulimos modlos fue muy dificl el entenderlo en ingles ya que los subtitulos no salian en español pero la base del curso fue muy buena El curso me sirvió para aprender el idioma desde cero.

Los vídeos son fáciles de comprender, es cierto que al final del curso los subtítulos en español no aparecen pero teniendo conocimiento de inglés pueden entenderse perfectamente.

Best course Muy completo, aunque al final los subtitulos al español no estaban del todo It's a really good course.

Las empecé sin entender nada de coreano y al finalizarlo puedo llegar a mantener una conversación básica con alguien.

Took this course months before a trip to Korea. I'm not fluent, but it definitely helped me find my way around teaching me the alphabet and helping me learn conversation topics. The pacing's a bit fast sometimes, but that's what 0.75x speed is for.
