Learning Korean Language ( K-pop / K-Drama / K-Literature)
Insta : lina.poetic.jazz Homepage: https://www.lina-poetic-jazz.com/ I am a South Korean poet and actor. I currently live in the Netherlands. Last year, I taught children at a Korean language school in Eindhoven. Because I was an actor, my Korean pronunciation is very accurate and can be of great help in developing your Korean conversation skills. Also, since I am a poet, I can also teach classes on Korean literature. In the Netherlands I make a living as a musician. So, it is possible to take classes to learn Korean while learning K-pop. I express my gratitude to all of you who love the Korean language and love Korea, and I will be ready to experience the beauty of the Korean language with you and actively help you!

Min
Korean lessons for all levels with a native Korean teacher
My name is Min and I come from South Korea. I teach Korean language since 2014, I started with some students in Korea and then I went to Brussels where I lived for 3 years and I met more than 20 students from different backgrounds by several individual courses. I stay in Korea for the time being and continue my skype or facetime lessons, an always efficient way to teach language classes anytime and anywhere. If you have no basis in this language, you will also have precise explanations in English or French. All my grammatical materials are ready in both languages :) If you have already learned the language by yourself, with other tutors, your friends, the TV show, the course will start with a level that you agree. Or preparation of Korean exams is also possible. (Topik, Bac, Korean interviews, writing of academic or professional texts etc) In addition, I offer you plenty of exercises and homework that work perfectly for you. (grammatical exercises, lists of vocabularies, debate topics, test production, etc.)

Course will include both reading, listening - understanding and writing, and include all course material. Dedication is key to learning any new language so I will encourage your participation, timely assignments and lots of brainstorming! So lets start learning!
