Learn Korean and Experience Korean Culture with a Qualified Teacher as a Seouler

Hello!
My name is Kay, and I live in Seoul, Korea. I have a Bachelor’s in English Literature, and a Master’s degree in International Development. For several years now, I have taught Korean to many foreign friends. As a certified instructor, I can effectively teach any level of the Korean language, and provide the tools and habits to practice it. If you are a beginner, we can start with Hangul, the characters of the Korean alphabet. For intermediate learners, I can help you expand upon your Korean through personalized lessons.

This class will enable you to:
- strengthen foundational Korean language skills in all the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
- communicate a variety of essential topics with others, including greetings, family, friends, food, phone calls, daily activities, etc.
- learn grammars easily with thorough explanations and abundant examples and exercises.
- understand diverse Korean culture and customs.
* Class content may be different depending on your goals, levels, experience, etc.

I believe mastering a language can be achieved by using it as often as possible in your daily life. This class not only provides the knowledge you need to speak Korean properly, but also enables you to practice your Korean in a diverse, real-life situations. As a native Korean who was born and raised in Seoul, I will guide you by using modern vocabulary and natural expressions that Seoulers actually use in their daily life. And If you choose to have in-person sessions, I’d love to share my knowledge of local places with you. We can make our class fun together!

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested or would like more information. We can discuss how to personalize the class for you.

Extra information

Place: I prefer meeting at cafes in either the Gangnam or Seocho district of Seoul.
Learning materials: I use the textbooks titled “Integrated Korean”(for beginners) or “Sejoing Korean”(e-book) with PPT and online contents. If you want to study with any specific book, such as the TOPIK test prep book, I’m happy to use it. For a conversational class, we can work without a book, and use the materials I will prepare in advance.

About Me

I love learning new languages and cultures. I’ve traveled to many countries in Europe, volunteered in the Philippines, and lived in the United States and Cambodia for a year each. Also, I have engaged in several international development projects, and visited the Dominican Republic in Central America and Ghana in Africa.
With my multi-cultural experiences, I can better communicate with others, and understand the varying perspectives of individuals studying a new language. :)

Reviews (1)

This is my first trip to Asia and South Korea. Meeting and getting to know Kay is a gift from heaven for me. Kay is such a wonderful, warm, bright, considerate and open minded teacher and friend. Kay was there for me and with me from the first moment we met in Seoul. She has helped me with handling so many aspects in daily life more than I could ever have asked for. Kay's classes are very interesting and motivating, well organized and lots of fun - a great learning experience. She always pays attention to my paste while studying Korean together. Kay has especially prepared a program for me, so I am not only able to experience the language but also many other aspects of the Korean culture and living. Some experiences/moments we have shared together: - Cooking some Korean dishes - Eating Korean food (Kay took me to restaurants which I would never have been able to find on my own) - Listening to Korean classical music during two concerts - Visiting Seodaemun, Museum of National History - Wearing a Hanbok, the Korean traditional costume I can recommend Kay to anyone not only wanting to learn Korean but more so experiencing the Korean culture and living. I am and will always be grateful to have been able to meet and cross paths with Kay.

Carlotta
Latin tutoring for secondary students (Dutch / Latin / German / English)
Salvē, my name is Carlotta and I have 5 years of experience in tutoring. These now take place in Leuven, where I live in a room, as well as in Maldegem, where I come from. Since April 2022, I have been taking courses in Latin language acquisition at the Schola Latīna, an Italian private school that uses the comprehensible input (CI) method. This means that all classes are taught exclusively in the target language, allowing me to not only translate Latin, but also speak and write Latin. Since no Flemish school expects active language skills, I will of course not do this during the lessons ;) In practice the same problems always return: difficulties with translation, difficulties with memorization of sequences and vocabulary, lack of motivation or fun. When such a fantastic profession is experienced as difficult, it is only logical that motivation also drops. Whatever the problem, Latin itself is a perfectly feasible subject. I also tutored mathematics and noticed that students only have fun when they are no longer struggling, which is what we are working towards :) My goal is to be less needed as quickly as possible by learning and practicing strategies. When you contact us, please state the year the student is in. I provide extra customized material! Cūrā ut valeās, Carlotta

Xavier
REVIEW ESO AND BACHILLERATO (SOCIAL AND HUMANITIES). ENGLISH
BACHELOR REVIEW classes (Social, Humanities), English, Catalan, Philosophy, Literature, History ... AND THAT. More than 20 years giving individual and small group classes in English, Spanish and Catalan. Academies and online. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona ... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, ... not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Philosofy , History and English for a long time ... since I was 16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much ... and the UK, ... but I don't have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. "Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?" And here I am. (That was two years and a half ago, at the Academy English Studio where I have been an English teacher for more than two years, untill 13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the Internet, and nobody could have possibly known about that horrible and destructive confinement). More than 20 years teaching and learning with my students. Online classes. Spanish and Catalan teacher, too.

English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension
Can learning English be fun, insightful, productive and affordable at the same time? I believe so! Whatever your background or profession, deciding to learn a foreign language is a great way to add another dimension to your life and make your mind work in a new way. You become a (slightly) different person, since along with a new language, one learns to look at the world in a slightly different way. This is why my approach to teaching English is not only aimed at laying or strengthening the foundational knowledge - grammar, speaking, writing and listening skills, but also at introducing students to the culture of the English-speaking population. We will find out what English speakers find funny, what drives them to tears, what makes them feel proud and what they get embarrassed about. Open to students of all levels, my course usually is taught online, using a variety of visual aids and a wide range of material, from textbooks to YouTube videos. In teaching advanced learners, I often refer to pieces of literature such as novels and poems, since they easily spark discussions, which in turn improves the students' grasp and feel of the language. In doing so, I take students beyond ordinary textbooks and grammar books, since they are no more than guides to learning, not absolute authorities, and because to me language is a living, constantly evolving matter, which you must submerge yourself into in order to understand. In addition to my unorthodox approach, what sets me apart is a collection of unique, language-related experiences, which translate into a good ability to understand nuances of the English language. A native Russian speaker, I have lived in the UK for over 5 years, went to a Scottish boarding school and have even completed a university degree in English. Thanks to my linguistic and cultural competency, I will make sure that you are never lost in translation! Are you interested? Then contact me today!

Gemma
Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.
