If you're interested in taking a Boston Korean course but aren't sure how to get started, Varsity Tutors can enroll you in a great course in as little as 24 hours. Korean is spoken by roughly 75 million people around the globe. It is the official language of both North and South Korea, with speakers scattered in countries like Russia, Japan, United States, and China too. Korean is typically considered a "language isolate" because it has no clear relationship to any other language group, which provides Korean language-learners with a unique set of challenges.

There are myriad reasons to take a Boston Korean class. Local high schools such as Match Charter Public School and Boston Latin School offer Korean as a foreign language option, so you might need extra help with your class. Similarly, local institutions of higher learning such as Boston University may require students to study Korean as part of their major requirements. Some individuals study Korean for the sheer challenge of it, while others do so to prepare for an upcoming trip to South Korea. Regardless of why you're studying the language, keep reading to learn more about how we can help you work toward your potential.

What skills can I work on in a Boston Korean course?

Consistent practice is the best way to approach learning a foreign language, as there is no better way to feel comfortable with Korean vocab, pronunciation, or grammatical rules. Sadly, finding a consistent practice partner to work with can prove challenging. Taking a Boston Korean class gives you regular access to a fluent instructor who can expose you to what the language is supposed to sound like, as well as fellow students you can practice with. You can also take a class that suits your level of expertise. For instance, a beginner might want a slower-paced class to help them get a handle on the basics, while more advanced students might want entire sessions to take place in Korean for a more immersive experience.

Taking a course can also help students work on their written Korean. Korean utilizes a combination of Chinese kanji (symbols that represent words or ideas) and a phonetic alphabet, with individual writers choosing how much Chinese to include in their work. This haphazard approach can quickly overwhelm native English speakers accustomed to a single alphabet, so your instructor might look for ways to make it seem more approachable. They can also review your written work and identify what you could improve to help you get better moving forward.

Your instructor can also help you with the finer points of Korean grammar. For example, Korean is a subject-object-verb language, meaning that every sentence must end with either a verb or an adjective. You would never say "I the computer fixed" in English, but that word order is appropriate in Korean. Furthermore, verbs don't change based on their subject, and a properly conjugated verb can be its own grammatically correct sentence. If you feel like you could use some help internalizing all of the differences between English and Korean, your instructor can help you come up with a mnemonic device to make rote memorization a little easier.

How will my Boston Korean course be structured?

Each class we offer consists of an expert instructor meeting with their class over our proprietary live virtual platform. Each teacher undergoes an extensive vetting process, so you can count on a passionate Korean instructor who understands how to share their enthusiasm for the language with students. Our platform also allows you to see and hear your instructor as if you were in the same room, so asking for help is as easy as raising your hand.

You can also interact with your peers in your online classroom. Listening to their spoken Korean gives you access to a variety of accents that no instructor could easily produce on their own, better preparing you to hear Korean in the real world. You can also try to help out one of your new friends if they get stuck, reinforcing your own understanding of the material in the process. Working in a group allows everyone to split the cost, giving you superior value for your money. If you feel like you need individualized attention to reach for your learning goals, you can also request private study time with your instructor outside of usual class hours.

We also try to make attending a course as convenient as possible. There are multiple course sessions concurrently, including two- and four-week options to make it easier to find one you can commit to attending for the duration. New courses also start on a monthly basis, so it's always a good time to begin.
