About Me

안녕하세요. 저는 박계형입니다.

Hi! This is Gaehyung(박계형).

I am a very ‘international' person. I am passionate and excited when I see the word “International, or Global”.

I graduated from Handong Global University in South Korea. I worked in an International Cafe in the University as a part-time job. While I studied, I had many chances to do volunteering work in the Middle East area. I went to Afghanistan Kabul University and taught Korean, English and Microsoft word/excel for the students and children as part of a cultural exchange programme in 2003. I also taught Korean in Tashkent University and Samarkand State Institutes for Foreign Language to the students whose major is Korean for a month. It was an amazing experience to teach Korean language and culture, at the same time to learn and meet people in the Middle east. These experiences allowed me to be more interested in teaching languages and I worked in the Language Institute in Pusan for a year and half before I graduated University.

After graduation, I started my full time career in Korean Air as an International Flight Attendant.
It was an amazing experience to visit 99 cities around the world. One of the most exciting things about working as a flight attendant was that I could eat various international foods when I had a flight.

While working in the Korean Air, I always had passion for vulnerable people, especially children and women.
Therefore, I decided to change my career to working in World Vision.
Working In the organization, as senior officer, I was responsible for the Education Organization Marketing and Monitoring Tour for 18 division offices of World Vision. It was also an exciting experience to build partners with all levels, governments, and communities for helping our children.
I visited Laos, Philippines and Mongolia, Bangladesh, where World Vision International is located, with VIP Donors. I organized 36 monitoring tours and published a manual book for staff education.

I had a 5 years career pause after having my son, as I value a happy and healthy family. Balanced life is one of the most important objects in my life. During that time, I got a qualification for ‘Social worker’ from the Ministry for Health & Welfare. Also, I got ‘Service Management Ability’ Certification from Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry. After that, I trained in the ‘Online Marketing Manager Programme’. It was not easy to finish the social worker practice programme and get qualifications, but I am very proud of myself for having accomplished it!

In 2018, my family moved to Ireland, where I studied International Peace Studies for my master degree at Trinity College Dublin. There was almost a 2 years of lock-down period when I lived in Ireland. Therefore, teaching languages to my son was my whole responsibility. I taught him Korean one hour every day with a programme which Korean school teachers use. My Korean teaching skills were refreshed and improved during this lockdown period!

Now, I live in Hampshire, England, beside the sea. These days, I am actively involved in Refugee Hub in Portsmouth city to help refugees and asylum seekers. Many of them come to the Refugee center for advice about legal issues, social care, medical advice and English lessons. I hope they feel welcomed in this city.

I like to talk about International issues, peace and war, culture and conflict, conflict resolution, gender and human rights. We can discuss topics related to these issues beyond Korean language.

Nowadays, I teach Korean to International Students from many countries via zoom.
You are welcome to ask any questions you may have. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Korean lessons for beginners to advanced students, taught by a native Korean who has great experience in teaching the Korean language
Hi, I’m Heewon from South Korea and I currently study music in the Netherlands. In Korea I taught exchange students Korean to make their stay more comfortable. Furthermore I taught students all over the world via an online language learning service. This experience showed me how fun teaching is and proved to me my skill in tutoring someone. Plus, having spoken to many Europeans I found some to be intrigued by Korean culture. So with my students I often find myself teaching them a lot about Korea as a country as well. You can check my teaching skills below. - Teach the basics of Korean in a cohesive structure to get you going quickly. - Provide my own materials and documents about grammar, expression and vocabulary, not boring text book. - Analyze Korean media like real world scenarios and Kpop for keeping learning interesting. - Tailor lessons specifically to a students skills and goals.

Korean lesson with native Korean teacher. You will love Korea!!!
Do you know Korean is the 14th most spoken first language in the world, followed by French as the 15th? Korean should be recognised as a world language. I am a current Korean teacher at Toowoomba Korean school with 7 years experience. I am very proud of my country South Korea, being happy to share Korean history and culture beside from teaching Korean. Recently I had a chance to make a presentation about South Korea to a local homeschooling group. I found that Korean and Korean culture must be promoted to more people.

Korean Intermediate Conversation Class to Improve Speaking Level
After finishing the basic Korean conversation, you might want to study more to travel to South Korea or meet native Korean speakers. This course is designed for students who can read Korean and can speak basic Korean expressions. Besides, it is for those who want to learn more practical and advanced expressions they can use with native speakers. Before taking this course, students will take a level test to see if they are suitable for this course. They will learn how to make sentences, advanced expressions, and idioms, etc. We will be doing many role-plays and activities using textbooks or the materials I prepare. Students will have a test after finishing every chapter and will be given homework every lesson. We will study the practical expressions that Korean people use in daily life. Start to make Korean friends and practice speaking the expressions you learned in this class! If you're interested. I look forward to hearing from you. :)

Kickstart your Korean! 1 to 1 tutoring online or in-person (+ bring your friend for a group discount!)
여러분, 안녕하세요? 🇰🇷 Do you want to start learning Korean and do you want to do it in an organised way? 🇰🇷 Did you already get started on learning but you got stuck on a particular grammar? 🇰🇷 Are you aiming for a TOPIK 1-2 language exam and do you want to get prepared in as short and effective a time as possible? As a language tutor with over 10 years of didactic experience and a TOPIK level 5 language exam, I can help you overcome difficulties and reach your goals. My love with Korean language and culture started more than 10 years ago thanks to my amazing Korean friends that I made during my first exchange year in Japan. Fast forward to 2016, I spent one semester in Korea as part of my individual research trip abroad to collect materials for my PhD which later turned into another semester of working holiday as an English tutor. This year spent in Korea was my real motivation to start learning the language properly so that I could connect more to the locals. For me this was a very enjoyable, but at the same time challenging process. As a result, I can completely relate to your struggles. That is why I like to make sure that I teach my students in the way that I wish I had learned when I was a beginner. I can assist you with grammar, pronunciation, and script (but also hanja and cultural notes) up to a TOPIK level 1-2. If you have a favourite vlogger, comedian or song that you want to translate in class, that is also no problem: my classes are very open to your input to turn your progress into a really personal experience.

For Beginners: Lesson in Hangeul Symbols (Korean Symbols)
The Korean language does not use the Roman alphabet; it uses the Hangeul 'alphabet'. If you are a beginner, you need to learn this symbolic system to communicate with Korean speakers. In this lesson, you would learn how the Hangeul symbols sounds like; what the consonants and vowels of Hangeul are; and how you can construct some basic simple words from these symbols. If you understand the Hangeul symbolic system, you can read every word in Korean even if you have not seen it before (with a few exceptions).
