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 longer time if you learn Korean yourself using Korean study sites, Korean Apps, and other self-learning materials. Korean websites and tutorial videos can teach you the 40 Korean alphabetics and its pronouncication, 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 are where most students learn Korean. Some universities in Hong Kong, like HKU Space and CUSCS offer 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 teaches Korean courses as well. If you want to be tutored 1-on-1, you can look for private tutors. They are flexible in adjusting teaching contents and materials to cater your needs and level of knowledge. Learning Korean online might not be the best choice for beginners as they need more guidance when they aren't familiar with the gramatical and voaculary fundamentals.
How could I know the quality of a Korean school / centre?
To decide if a Korean lesson or course is suitable for you, you can first refer to the Korean instructor's qualifications. Besides deciding to learn Korean from Korean native speakers and "Korean as second language" speakers, students interested in learning Korean can ask for the tutor's examination qualifications. In the TOPIK examination system, TOPIK II Level 6 is the highest. Also, students can see if the prepared teaching 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 a bit less as students are taught in groups. Students are able to communicate with one another in Korean and practice daily Korean conversation. If you find 1-on-1 private Korean lesson out of your budget, you can consider to learn Korean in small groups.
