How long does it take to learn Korean? What are some ways to learn elementary Korean, like Korean alphabets and Korean prounciation
The time it takes to learn Korean depends on your requirements and goals. If your goal is to attempt TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean), it takes at least 4 months and up to a year to achieve TOPIK Level 1 / 2. Without a doubt, it takes a longer period of time if you teach yourself using Korean websites, Korean Apps, and other self-learning materials. Korean websites and tutorial videos can teach you the 40 Korean sounds, equipping you with the basics.
Where should I learn Korean? What types of Korean courses are there? Can I learn Korean online?
Korean language schools is where most students learn Korean. Some universities in Hong Kong, like HKU Space and CUSCS, hold Korean courses. They require students to take the full-time and part-time courses and assess them using assignments and exams (not Topik). The Hong Kong Federation of Trade Unions holds Korean courses as well. If you want to be tutored one-to-one, you can look for private tutors. They are flexible in adjusting teaching contents and materials so as to suit your level. Learning Korean online might not be the best choice for beginners as they need more personal guidance when they aren't even familiar with the fundamentals.
How could I know the quality of a Korean school / centre?
To decide if a Korean course is good for you, you can first refer to the Korean tutor's qualifications. Among the TOPIK exams, TOPIK II Level 6 is the highest. Therefore, students interested in learning Korean can ask for the tutor's examination qualifications. Also, students can see if the teacher's materials are of high quality. You should also be aware of teachers who charge an unreasonably low fee.
How much does it cost to learn Korean?
Korean teachers charge at least $220/hour. Korean language schools charge less as students are taught in groups. Students are able to communicate with one another in Korean and learn daily Korean conversation. If you find one-to-one tuition not affordable, you can consider tutorials in small groups.
