An Atlanta Korean course offered by Varsity Tutors might provide you with a much deeper understanding of this unique language. Korean is considered a language isolate, which means that experts still aren't sure how it arose in the first place, or which languages it evolved from. One thing's for sure: it doesn't appear to be related to any other modern language, and it has very unique and distinct features.

From its writing system to its oral structure, Korean is one of a kind. While it has some loose associations with Japanese, these aren't enough to form a conclusive connection. When you learn Korean for the first time, you'll be learning one of the most unique languages in the world. While learning Korean is definitely fulfilling in and of itself, it might also prove very beneficial in the future. Perhaps you need to meet certain language requirements for programs at Georgia State University or other institutions. Maybe you're a high school student who wants to learn Korean early in your educational career. This could be a smart move, especially when the time comes to apply for universities. Perhaps you're a working professional, and you'd like to learn the Korean language to access lucrative new international markets. South Korea is very active in the global economy, and this nation is home to many tech giants and car manufacturers.

Over 75 million people speak Korean in nations like the United States, Russia, China, and of course, North and South Korea. Who knows who you might meet after you learn Korean? Who knows what kinds of opportunities might arise? Whatever your reasons might be for learning Korean, these courses can help you learn in a structured, efficient environment.

What Might An Atlanta Korean Course Cover?

While there are many unique features of the Korean language, the most challenging aspects are sentence structure and the Korean alphabet. Otherwise known as Hangul, the Korean writing system is considered one of the most advanced on the planet. This is because of its highly efficient phonology. While English has inconsistent rules, silent letters, and other confusing elements, Hangul is very straightforward. Many of its consonants are even shaped like people's mouths as they pronounce the corresponding sounds. Unlike Chinese and Japanese, Hangul is completely syllabic, although its characters might resemble pictographs to the untrained eye. In reality, these characters are actually convenient, square "blocks" of syllabic characters that come together to form words.

Along with its unique writing system, Korean also features a distinct sentence structure. Each sentence must end with either a verb or an adjective. This means you'll have to listen very carefully to the end of Korean sentences, and this is where crucial information lies. Depending on the end of a sentence, the entire expression could become negative, positive, or past tense. Verb conjugation is also very important, and properly conjugated verbs can form complete sentences on their own. Verbs are typically conjugated based on who you're talking to, rather than what you're talking about.

There are many different "speech levels" that change based on your audience, and they include formal polite, informal polite, and casual speech. These are just a few examples of the concepts you'll cover in your Korean course. You'll also learn about common phrases that will help you converse in Korean. You might also cover pronunciation, and you'll eventually expand your Korean vocabulary. Your course will also touch on Korean history and culture, and you might discuss the small differences between the Korean language in the North and South.

How Will I Learn With An Atlanta Korean Course?

All of these courses take place online, in virtual classroom settings. When you join an Atlanta Korean course, you'll join other students in a classroom setting not unlike a physical learning environment. You'll learn alongside each other, and an instructor will lead the lessons from the head of the class. Just like a normal classroom, you'll have plenty of opportunities to interact, ask questions, and voice your opinion. Your instructors are all Korean experts with excellent communication skills, and they're chosen after a lengthy vetting and interview process.
