How can we help you?
Language isn’t just about words – it’s an expression of culture, traditions, personality and life.
Which is why if you’ve tried to learn through apps, textbooks or Youtube – you would’ve found that you are still not able to understand your favourite Korean drama or that Instagram story that your bias posted!
It can feel daunting and overwhelming to start.
- "I haven't been a student in decades!"
- "I've forgotten how studying works!"
- "I didn't even do well in school, how can I learn a whole new language?!"
If you can relate to any of these statements, you're not alone. Surprisingly or unsuprisingly, currently 100% of our students are adults and about 90% are aged 30 and above and about 85% of them speak just one language (for now) - English.
We don't like grammatical jargon.
Like 'conjugation' or 'parenthesis'. Because... well, what the hell even are they first of all.
We just want to help our students speak Korean like us - a normal everyday person.
This is not an academic school.
Here's why our students are learning Korean!
"One day I heard Dynamite and it opened up a new world for me. To BTS who have given me so much joy, colour and light.
Who have brought me to the doorway of a new culture, Korean. Because one day, I will visit their homeland, the place that has given me these boys.
"I'm learning Korean because I want to be able to understand the deeper meaning behind BTS' lyrics so I can trule connect to them and their music.
I'm doing it for the love of BTS."
"I"ve always wanted to learn a 2nd language...
The Korean language will be helpful for when I'm listening to K-Pop, watching K-Dramas and for when I eventually travel to Korean! It will be amazing to be able to rely on my own knowledge!
Learning is a great way to be active and can lead to new opportunities."
"To be able to understand BTS songs well and be able to sing it confidently, to travel to Korea for 6 months with my family, to speak, read and write and communicate well and to embrace another culture and life!"
"I came across this line in a song that RM wrote and I asked a friend who is learning Korean and she showed me the characters of 'person' and 'love'.
I was mindblown!! I wanted to learn more about it!"
"I have always felt a connection to the Korean culture which is how I discovered BTS.
BTS helped me to embraced my identity as an Asian Australian and so I am learning Korean to embrace their culture and language in return.
My dream is to one day travel to Korean and be able to speak Korean."
"I want to give back to the boys. What better way than to learn and respect their culture and language?
I want to understand them better and learn about the rich culture they come from. Of course, I'd like to visit Korean and hopefully and the honour to speaking to them one day.
I'd also like to prove to myself that I can stick to it and do it! Fighting!"
