Varsity Tutors is the only name you need to know if you're searching for a great Kansas City Korean class. Korean is spoken by an estimated 75 million people worldwide. It is recognized as the official language of both North Korea and South Korea, with a smattering of speakers in countries such as China, Japan, the United States, and Russia also contributing to the global total. Korean is considered a "language isolate," meaning that linguists cannot prove a relationship between it and any other language group. If you're studying this language, many of its rules will not feel familiar to you as a result.

Korean isn't the most spoken language in the world, but that shouldn't stop you from enrolling in a Kansas City Korean course. Local high schools such as Park Hill High School and Staley High School offer Korean as a foreign language, so students at these schools might want to take a course to supplement their classroom instruction. Likewise, undergraduates might want to take a course to get more out of a Korean class at a local institution such as the University of Missouri - Kansas City. Some students study Korean to get more out of an upcoming trip to Asia, while others are interested in enhancing their resumes. No matter why you've chosen to study Korean, continue reading to learn more about how we can help you work toward your objectives.

What skills can I practice in a Kansas City Korean class?

The old adage "practice makes perfect" rings true when it comes to learning any foreign language, but especially Korean. Unfortunately, many students have a hard time connecting with a conversation partner they can consistently practice with. If you take a Kansas City Korean class, you will have a set amount of time each week to practice your Korean with an expert instructor and other language learners at approximately your level. If you're just starting out, your instructor can patiently answer any questions you have about Korean verb conjugations. If you've been studying Korean for a few years now, your instructor can concentrate on more advanced concepts to provide a more engaging study experience.

Taking a formal Korean course can also help you improve your written Korean. Unlike English, written Korean uses a combination of Chinese kanji (representing words) and a phonetic alphabet, with the amount of Chinese up to each individual author to decide. If that sounds confusing, your instructor can help you understand the Korean writing system. They can also provide constructive criticism on all of your work to help you understand what you're doing well and where you could still improve.

Many students also study the intricacies of Korean grammar in a classroom setting. For example, Korean is an S-O-V language, meaning that the standard sentence structure is subject-object-verb. If that sounds wrong to you, it would be in English (an S-V-O language). This means that instead of saying "I hit the baseball," you would say "I the baseball hit." If you are having a hard time remembering fundamental structural differences between Korean and English, your instructor can help you come up with ways to make it seem more approachable.

How will my Kansas City Korean course be structured?

Every course involves a knowledgeable instructor meeting with their students at a set time on our live virtual platform. Each instructor undergoes a comprehensive vetting process, so you can count on studying under the tutelage of a great communicator who truly understands Korean.

Our live virtual platform is an online classroom that allows you to see and hear your teacher and fellow students as if you were in the same room. Talking to your classmates may seem like an unwelcome distraction, but it's actually a good thing. Hearing their Korean exposes you to a variety of accents that more accurately represents what it would be like to hear the language in Seoul. You can also help each other out as needed, which establishes an environment conducive to mastering difficult concepts. Studying in a group offers tremendous value for your money, and you can always request private study time with your instructor if you need individualized attention.

Varsity Tutors also tries to make attending a course as convenient as it can be. We offer multiple courses simultaneously to make it easier to find a fit for your schedule. We also launch new courses every week, so it's always a good time to get started.
