Learn Korean


Korean American Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting Korean language and culture. In keeping with our mission, we have a formal Korean language program to serve the needs of the community in Orange County. Our program perfectly suited for those with absolutely no Korean experience to those who have a Korean language background.

We are THE ONLY secular adult Korean language program in Orange County that is run and operated by people with a background in Korean. Proceeds from our Korean language program helps fund the organization and allow us to bring cultural programs to the community.



thumnailWe have designed our classes especially for busy adults. All our classes are taught by professional native Korean instructors. We provide a comprehensive and practical approach to learning Korean that combines a strong balance of grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, reading and writing.

All classes are 90 minutes and last for 10 week, with the exception of Korean Fundamentals, which is 8 weeks. We also offer a 2 week class for those only interested in only learning the Korean alphabet (Hangul) or those wanting to brush up on their reading skills. Through our Meetup.com group, we offer students additional opportunities to practice speaking at no additional cost every Thursdays from 7:00 PM – 8:50 PM.

Please go to our Korean Class Information page for more details.

• Are not available during regular class times.
• Need flexible scheduling.
• Want to augment existing classes.

All private lessons are for 60 minutes and held at our office. We offer packages of four, six, or eight hourly sessions. Click here for more information about our private lessons and to purchase packages.
