WHICH CLASS SHOULD I TAKE?
For those students or those with absolutely no experience or very little experience in Korean should register for 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 review our Korean Class Descriptions
SELF CHECK if you are unsure about whether to sign up for Fundamentals or Level 1: If you can read and understand this, then you can go to Level 1: 안녕하세요. 저는 한국어 학생이에요. 저는 미국사람이에요. 제 이름은 김태미 입니다. If you cannot read nor understand what this means, then please sign up for Korean Fundaments.
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. **Placement tests will only take place during registration period.***
