Welcome to the "Learn Korean from Scratch" course from TOPIK GUIDE.
This course curriculum has been systematically designed to help you learn Korean language in the most effective and efficient way possible.
This course is very different from the typical Korean lessons on YouTube and on many blogs.
We will not try to make you memorise 100 Korean phrases about different situations and make you assume that you have learned the language.
Memorising sentences and words is not learning a language.
Learning a language means having the skills to recall the words and grammar from your memory and frame meaningful expressions to communicate as required in different situation.
And, that's what we want to teach you in this course.
We will start from the very basics - the Korean script, learn how to connect characters to make words.
Then we will learn how to make simple sentences and slowly we will move up to holding conversations.
The instructor of this course is a foreigner who himself learned Korean from scratch and is a Korean linguist today.
He has a 3 degrees in Korean language and linguistics including a Masters from Seoul National University with 'Teaching Korean as a Foreign Language' as his major.
He has highest TOPIK level 6 and has helped hundreds of Korean language learners learn Korean, pass TOPIK test and achieve their dreams to study or work in Korea.
During this course, the TOPIK GUIDE Team, along with the instructor, will always be there to help you if you feel stuck at any point.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q:- I have tried to learn Korean multiple time through different sources but couldn't go beyond alphabet. How is this course different from other courses?
A:- We know that language learning is difficult. If anyone is promising you that he will make you learn the language without any serious studying and just by doing some fun activities or memorising phrases, he is lying. Many Korean language instructors have very good knowledge of Korean language but they don't know how to teach things in a systematic way and order. It's either because they themselves didn't learn the language a systematic way or because they don't know to teach a foreign language effectively. And that't the reason most of the learners are not able to go beyond the first few lessons. Most just give up at the alphabet because they the teacher is not able to explain the pronunciation changes properly and they feel overwhelmed.
This course has been designed by an expert who has not only learned Korean from scratched and achieved near native level fluency but also did formal study and research on how to teach Korean as a foreign language. So this course uses tried and tested methods to teach you the concepts of Korean language. Yes, you will have to put in more effort than when learning through YouTube videos but you will not feel that you are not able to understand something at any point in the course.
Consider this course an online version of the courses taught at the language schools of SNU, Yonsei, Sogang and so on (for which you need to pay $1500-2000). We use the similar pattern and order of lessons. Actually it can be better than them in the sense that we explain every single grammar concept in English.
Q:- What if I have any questions during the course?
A:- We know that language learning, especially at the beginning stage, requires some extra hand-holding. There we are always just a message or email away from you. If you have any questions during the course, you can leave a message on the lesson page, mail or message us on Facebook and we will be there to help you.
Q:- Is the course content final or will you add more lessons?
A: We plan to add more lessons. The reason why haven't added them yet is that we want to see the students' progress data and issues faced by them, what they like and dislike and then create new content accordingly.
