Korean Classes – Summer 2017

Hello! 안녕하세요!

Planning on traveling to Korea and want to learn a few useful expressions? Know a few colloquial expressions in Korean since you grew up with your Korean grandparents, but curious to learn the language more in-depth? Want to simply learn a new language over the summer? Well, your timing is great because I’m planning on spending my summer teaching Korean classes through Korea Daily!

Class materials: no book purchase necessary, as I will provide weekly study materials in advance via Google docs that you should print and bring to class. But if you have Sogang Korean 1A and 1B Student Books, please bring it to class as I will often be referring to materials from those books. So all you need to bring to each class is a notebook, something to write with, and an attitude ready to learn with fellow students of all backgrounds and proficiency levels!

Beginner Level Course Fee: Up to you! I will take donations of whatever amount you feel that you would like to provide. As a comparison, a local private language learning center called Language Door has students pay around $32 per 1.5 hour class plus a registration fee.

Intermediate Level Course Fee: $20 per class per person

Payment options: cash, check payable to Jini Shim, or Venmo to ID: “jini-shim”

*I’m open to taking private lesson requests, also. Please ask me about it if you’re interested.
