Seoul Korean Language Centre specialises in interactive and conversational Korean language classes. Korean language is not a flat formula that can be simply written on a whiteboard. They do things differently here. Instead of monotonously quoting textbooks and making students take down notes, they encourage them to speak to one another in Korean. They make new materials beyond textbooks so that students are exposed to various conversational practices.

Activities are assigned every lesson so that they can apply the new Korean grammar they have learnt minutes ago. The Korean language is something more than just reading textbooks and is acquired by accumulative real-life practices. Its mission lies in helping students to sustain learning the Korean language with effective and fun practices.

Key Differentiators

  • Interactive and Conversational
  • Qualified Teachers by the South Korean Government and National Institute of Korean Language
  • TOPIK Syllabus

Client Testimonial

Through their classes, my partner has commented that my Korean is good enough for simple day to day conversations and thinks that the progress I’ve made through Basic 1 is really worth the money!

I’ve been learning Korean at ONLYOU for about 5 months now, and am currently in the Intermediate level. I took lessons way back and have maintained a very basic understanding, after their assessment I joined and it was tough to catch up at first. But they sent me more learning materials for me to revise and catch up to speed. I’m glad that my learning journey is with ONLYOU. Teacher Young is not only patient and caring, she often lightens up the mood of the class too. Learning materials are also made easy to understand and I love my classmates! 감사합니다 ♥
