Go ahead if you need some direction with this language. But make sure you do your homework or more to be able to see the improvements. It’s not an easy language to learn and it requires your commitment to self study.

Take this course because you really will get to know to know the basics of the Korean language. Just make sure you do your homework so we can progress at a good pace. It was a great experience as I met some great people and I'm a lot more confident in speaking already.
