New: Buena Park Class!
Thanks to our partner organization, Korean Community Services (KCS), we will be able to offer one of our most popular classes, Korean Fundamentals in Buena Park starting in the Fall 2017.
Fall 2017 Schedule and Fees: Prices do not include book or $10 material fee. All classes take place at our Irvine location, except otherwise noted.
*Please Note: The only difference between Sections A, B and C are the DAYS and TIMES. The content is exactly the same. Section C will be in Buena Park at KCS. KCS is located at: 7212 Orangethorpe Ave, Buena Park, CA 90621
Each class needs a minimum of 3 students to remain open. If minimum registration is not met, classes may be cancelled. Enroll now to ensure your class remains open.
**Supplemental Practice Class is a FREE instructor led practice class for our registered students in our basic levels and a great opportunity to reinforce the class lessons through additional practice and application. Attendance is optional. Our Supplemental classes are held on Thursdays from 7:00 – 8:45 PM at facilities in Irvine. This program is made possible through the support of our generous volunteers and donors.
PLACEMENT: For those students or those with no experience or background in Korean will automatically be placed in Korean Fundamentals. Students with a Korean heritage background who cannot read Hangul will also be asked to start with Korean Fundamentals.
All other students should read the Class Descriptions HERE
If you are still unsure which level to take, you can request a placement test by email so we can assess which level would be best. Please contact us by email to request the test.
