I’m so happy to have found Sophie! She’s an incredible teacher who’s enthusiasm for the subject inspires you to learn. She has a flair for explaining information in way that’s easy to understand and has endless patience for my mistakes. She clearly wants us to use our brains by giving us challenges that test us but never to the point we want to quit. I look forward to our classes and know with her support I’ll achieve my goals.

Joining Sophie’s classes is probably the second best decision I have done in a while, (first being clicking on bts mv). Through her classes, I have learnt how descriptive and beautiful Korean is. I tried learning by myself at first tbh but I gave up but Sophie’s encouragement and patience towards students makes me really want to keep going. If I ever meet BTS in person, I will definitely be telling them in Korean that Sophie is helping me realise more how beautiful and just heart touching their songs are. I am so thankful for her for helping me realise that.

I love learning Korean with Sophie Ssaem. She is a great teacher that teaches at a great pace and introduces Korean culture in every lesson. Our shared love of BTS and languages helps to maintain interest and the pace of each class means there is plenty to practice in between classes. Thank you Sophie Ssaem

I think one of the best decisions I made this year is to learn another language. Initially, I decided to do it on my own, but I find that I have more accountability learning Korean with group classes! I was encouraged all the more and pumped up to stick to my commitment! Although I think I may have "commitment issues" in general, it's not (and will never be) about our Hangul classes!

I felt super hesitant at first because I’m super awkward with new people and the thought of committing to a class kind of scared me. But once I started, I really had nothing to worry about. Everyone’s been great and I’m so happy that I started to take these classes with Modu. I’m looking forward to more lessons and hopefully speaking like a true local soon enough! 파이팅!! 감사합니다 소피쌤~~

I’ve been self-studying Korean for years and have fallen into the famous language trap of knowing tons of vocabulary but struggling with constructing sentences. It’s only been a few lessons with Sophie’s class and I can already tell a huge difference! The classes are easy to digest along with being given practice and examples that really helped the lessons stick. Thanks to Sophie my goals with learning Korean feels more realistic and I could not be more grateful!

I have been looking for a Korean Lesson for about almost 2 years now. It's really a blessing to have found Sophie giving us ARMYs Korean lessons. I had ZERO knowledge, but now slowly learning how to read, write and understand Korean while enjoying it every week.

My experience learning Korean with our Sopie Ssaem has been nothing but EXCITING!
Sophie is so welcoming, supporting, honest and relatable which is super comforting when trying something new! If there is something you need to work on, she is there with you to give 100%.
Sophie never fails to bring some purple BTS magic to every lesson and it leaves me eager and wanting to keep learning!
I cannot wait to see what she has to bring to each and every class!
