Frequently asked questions
How long is the course & fees?
It depends on the courses. A module takes 8 weeks (total 16+hours). The courses run every week with 2 hours+. Please check the opening dates.
Do I need to do weekly homework?
Yes. There is a weekly homework and our students spend about 1~2 hours doing homework and study. The weekly homework helps the students to review and prepare for the next lesson. Usually, KLCEC students enjoy the weekly homework because it is fun to do. In order to enjoy the "conversational" Korean, reading and writing homework help you to enjoy the class 110% with a native teacher.
Can I call you?
Yes. If you can "text" me and let me know the best time to call you back, it would be a great help. I am trying to avoid marketing calls.
I am not sure whether I should enrol for Sat. PM or weekdays' evening classes. Also, when shall I enrol?
Both classes are popular, with large numbers of students attending. KLCEC offers classes from Module 1 ~ 4 then it leads to Sogang university 2A&B, 3A&B & 4A&B, 5+ level so there are only few Module 1 openings which are in Feb., May., Aug., and Oct. each year. The students who pass the test after module 1, enjoy the course till Sogang university 4B or higher level. So there are many students who enrol early to get a spot before February.
Do I have to buy any materials?
The textbook is $10 for the basic levels and around $55 for a Sogang University textbook & workbook.
May I know the minimum and the maximum number of students in a class?
KLCEC needs 8 minimum students to open a class. Around 16+ students are the maximum in a class. KLCEC follows the rule in W.A. during COVID-19 so you will be informed if any changes in advance.
I have studied Korean previously and I would like to join the intermediate level at your center. How can I apply?
Please send an email or text the teacher to arrange an assessment. A written test for 20 min. and oral test for 10 min. will be given. Bringing along your past learning notes or books will be helpful to understand your level. The best time to sit down for the assessment would be around 1~2 weeks before the commencement. Please avoid the middle of school break time or holiday seasons.
Shall I have a Korean native speaker to help me to learn and improve my understanding of the language?
Having a native Korean friend is a good idea because you can practice speaking skills but "if" he/she gives incorrect information on grammar or uses a non-standard accent, you might be confused when you learn Korean formally. There are some people learn Korean through Internet as well but our center offers "interaction speaking base" so you will save time to learn Korean properly in the class base.
Do you offer private lessons as one to one?
Private lessons can be arranged for companies or government departments (In House Program) because the request is for Korean for Special Purpose (KSP); If otherwise, please contact me to discuss. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Small Class (S.C.): The Fee is different & S.C. is the temporary class for you to join the main classes.
We have got 4~5 qualified NATIVE teachers who have got 5 ~ 20 years of experienced teachers.
If lockdown? Online lesson?
Yes, I offered Online lessons (Zoom) throgh whole time of 3 months lockdown in 2020 and 5 days in Feb. 2021. Online lessons were offered for free so far. I usually use Online for emergency like this kind of lockdown and a revision before their written test. 8 lessons in the class and one more Online lesson will be provided.
