What is the minimum age for your courses?
We normally teach adults over the age of 18 how to speak Korean but under certain circumstances will consider older children. Most of our team are CRB checked and we have a qualified safeguarding officer to ensure that all our clients are fully protected no matter what their age.
How many Korean language lessons should I have?
Everyone of our clients has a different reason for learning Korean. For some a quick 10 hour course is enough to give the flavour of Korea and a brief understanding of conversational Korean. Some learn more quickly than others, and for some of our clients doing business, or studying in Korea means that they will need detailed courses on reading and writing Korean as well as speaking.
When you call us we will discuss how we can tailor our teaching to your specific needs.
How long is each lesson?
Most lessons are for two hours at a time. This is because after that time it becomes more difficult to remember the new content of the lessons.
Where do lessons take place?
Our flexible tailored lesson plans mean that we travel to you. This means that lessons are held at convenient times for you. We can visit you in your home or office or if you prefer we can meet at other venues such as a library. We have even given lessons in the local coffee shop, but that means you have to buy the coffee!
How many people can attend the lessons?
We specialize in one to one lessons as we find this helps our clients to learn more effectively. However we can do classes for more than one if required. Uo to a maximum of 5 students can be taught at one time provided the learning environment is suitable. Please note that there is an additional charge for each extra student. We will discuss this when you first make your enquiry.
How do I now if I am progressing?
Our experienced team analysis the progress of all our students and clients on a monthly basis and if special attention is required we will discuss this with you as the issues arise, and alter your lesson plans accordingly.
What happens if I want to cancel my course?
We recognise that client's circumstances can change, and always try to help our learners when this happens. Under normal circumstances if a lesson plan is cancelled before one third of the lessons have been held we refund 50% of the fee paid. If more half of the lessons have been undertaken we reserve the right to keep the full payment made depending upon the reasons why and an individual's personal situation.
Do I get a certificate when I complete my course?
The short answer to this is no. We are teaching our clients to read write and speak Korean and depending upon the level required we can teach up to the highest level to include highly technical language and even linguistics. We are not affiliated to a certified examination board and there are no examinations. You will however be able to achieve whatever level of the Korean Language you require.
