Korean courses in Madrid

Students learning Korean are the luckiest ones when it comes to learn the Korean alphabet or hangul which has been created to be easy to learn, and read. You can even learn it at home and once you start learning it, it won’t take you long to me able to read it all but some work to understand what you are actually readying. However there is more than the hangul to learn, you will have to learn the language and practice it. There is where our Korean courses will help you the most. You will be able to start from the beginning with a basic level (A1) to the most advanced one (C2). Moreover, if you have a special interest in working in Korea or studying in a Korean university, we recommend you to pass the TOPIK exam. This certification will without any doubts more doors and pathways will open for you.

Which book do we use?

In our regular Korean classes, we use Sogang Korean, a book from Sogang University. This is a textbook focused on communication that will help you speak as people do in Korea everyday. In addition, it comes with a workbook and a vocabulary and grammar supplement. This way, if we speak to a native, our Korean will sound more natural so we’ll be able to speak comfortably.

Anyway, teachers will bring other type of materials to complement their classes and let you receive a full and in depth teaching. They might even use other textbooks to emphasize those contents that haven’t been fully understood. This doesn’t mean you have to buy anything else because Sogang will be the only book that will be used everyday.

Intensive summer course

Starting an intensive summer Korean course is one of the best ways to get started with the language. Thanks to the fact that summer frees up our schedule from a lot of activities, dedicating our time to learning Korean will help us set the basics from where we’ll be able to keep going. With your head free of worries, we’ll solve some of those questions that might happen later on time and, why not? We may make friends who have similar tastes to us.
