We are now accepting students for the new semester of classes. We will continue to accept students until the teacher’s schedule is full.
Classes begin: ANYTIME!
Class location: ANYWHERE!
- If you are not located in Jeonju, Skype classes are available.
- If you are outside of Korea, we also accept payment for Skype classes via Paypal.
(On a side note, my wife will give birth to our daughter around the USA’s Thanksgiving time this year.^^ Please anticipate a short break during that time or Skype classes to temporarily replace on-site classes.)
Here are the different levels and books that are available:
TOPIK 1 (Convenient)
a.k.a. “Survival” Korean.
In this book, you will learn:
TOPIK 2 (Comfortable)
This is a very practical guide to basic Korean grammar and a logical next step from the Seogang book as some of the grammar will be review. You will learn:
TOPIK 3 (Confident)
This book follows along after the previous grammar book and is written in a similar style with more exercises and review quizzes than its predecessor. You will learn:
TOPIK 4 (Competent)
This book “analyzes 150 major TOPIK grammar rules according to their frequency on the exam.” It’s the best book to learn before the 중급 TOPIK. You will learn:
- ~1500 vocabulary words (list currently being created)
- 150 grammar rules (click for list)
- Intermediate essay writing based on previous TOPIK tests
As the location for all the classes is in Jeonju (see location), it may be difficult for people from neighboring towns to come into Jeonju for regular classes.
Last semester, we tried out Skype 1:1 lessons with great success, so this semester we’d like to offer those again to any interested people in Gunsan*, Iksan*, Buan*, Kimje, Namwon* and so on (even internationally!). There are two options for Skype classes:
- 1:1 Skype lessons based on your availability
- The possibility to join an existing on-sight class via Skype
*Yes, we have taught students from each of these cities, and yes, most of them have done at least one class in Jeonju.
Google Hangouts Class
- Many students
- In a variety of locations
- At the same level and
- With the same availability
Then Google Hangouts is also an option for class. Please contact us for more details about this option.

Please note that the Beginner class and Intermediate class end two weeks after Low and High Intermediate. This is due to the amount of material to cover in the given time period.

- 15,000/hour for a small class (2-4 students)
- 20,000/hour for a private lesson (1 student)
Discounts are provided for students who pay monthly. Larger discounts for students who pay for half or the whole class up front (plus a FREE book).
For online lessons:
- 15,000/hour for a 1:1 lesson (1 hour at a time, up to 3 times a week)
