Special Classes

Words only have meaning when you GIVE it meaning.


You need to understand the culture, traditions and lives of the people to fully understand the context of language.

Hence why subtitles on our K-Dramas just don't cut it.

Special classes are once a month on a Wednesday and suitable for students across all levels including complete beginners. We focus on a particular area of Korean culture and take a deep dive into how Koreans live, think and act.

All lessons are recorded and emailed out the morning after.
