Korean Language and Culture Level 1

Introduces both the spoken and written language. Upon completion of this course, students should expect to be able to engage in simple conversations about everyday activities as well as to read and write the complete Korean syllabary. Proper pronunciation and the development of conversational proficiency are strongly emphasized. Grammatical topics include demonstratives, honorifics and the humble form, pronouns, interrogatives, negation, descriptive and action verbs, plural markers, irregular verbs, and conjunctions.


Korean Language and Culture Level 2

After completing Level 2, students can expect to be able to make requests, ask for assistance and discuss their daily schedule of activities. Building upon the basic foundation provided in Level 1, topics include expressions of time and date, interrogatives, numbers, present and past formal tenses, the polite informal style, future tense markers, conjunctions and plural forms. Listening skills and proper pronunciation continue to be strongly emphasized.



Since communication in a foreign language requires an understanding of the cultural context, our aim is to teach you the living language through carefully selected textbooks, newspaper and magazine articles and other relevant materials, rather than have you repeat and memorize tourist phrases.


Over the past thirty years, we have reviewed many Korean textbooks and have selected Korean Language for a Good Job 1 (Darakwon Press) as the one that best fulfills the objectives of our students. Teachers provide suggestions for texts and supplementary materials at the higher levels. Books may be purchased online at Hanbooks.com.





Tuition for the Korean program at all levels is $499. There is a non-refundable $35 registration fee for first-time students only.

In addition to our core program, we offer immersion programs which cover levels 1 to 5 of our core program in 6 weeks (4 weeks in Summer). Tuition for the immersion program is $2,495.

Please note that our immersion program hours may change depending on how many students register for the course.

Private instruction offers students an opportunity to work one-on-one with an instructor at their own pace. The instructor carefully selects materials and plans lessons to effectively meet the student's goals and individual learning style.

Private programs offer a flexible schedule and a customized curriculum. A minimum of 20 hours of instruction with one or two classes (each 90 or 120 minutes) per week is the suggested module, but dates, times and content can be arranged according to your requirement.


Immersion programs are designed to teach the equivalent of levels 1 to 5 of the Institute's regular core programs in one 6-week or 4-week, 90-hour sessions. Classes meet Monday through Friday, 3 hours a day in 6-week programs/4.5 hours a day in 4-week programs).

The main goal of these programs, which meet in small classes of 4 to 12, is to help students, from day one, to increase confidence in their ability to use their new language in a wide range of real-life situations and improve their oral skills as they progress from level to level.
