If you’re just starting to learn Korean or have no single background of the language, the Hangeul characters might seem a bit intimidating even just by looking at it. But hey—we have to start somewhere. Hana Korean Language School’s basic Korean classes are perfect for those who want or need to start from scratch. One of the first lessons you will learn is reading and writing Hangul, then understanding simple Korean.
Now, imagine yourself watching your favorite Korean movies, melodramas and K-pop music videos without the need for subtitles. Or be able to sing along with your best-loved Korean song! How cool is that, right? You will be able to do all that when you enroll at our basic korean classes.
How cool would it be if you sent an Instagram message to your favourite Korean star, and can read their reply in Hanguel?
So, don’t wait any longer. Learn basic Korean language at Hana Korean!

Small Group Class (6 pax)
Some language courses can be boring. Classes here are taught through various methods that strengthen both listening and understanding skills, together with a special focus on vocabulary. What is more, my teacher is open, patient and very helpful, which is a great asset in learning a language in a friendly and relaxing environment. The class I am in is very small (7 pax), which is a plus as I have more opportunity to practice with the teacher!
The Korean class was wonderful. I learned many, many words and found I could understand a great deal. It added to my desire to keep learning and I find I can go back to the handouts and class materials to practice.”
