If you're looking for the best San Diego Korean class you can find, look no further than Varsity Tutors. Korean is spoken by approximately 75,000,000 people worldwide. It is the official language of North and South Korea, with a scattering of speakers in nations such as Japan, China, Russia, and the United States as well. Notably, Korean is considered a "language isolate," meaning that it has no clearly defined relationship to any other language group. That said, there may be a connection with the Japanese or Altaic languages.
While Korean may not be the most spoken language in the world, there are still a variety of good reasons to study it. Some local high schools, including San Ysidro High School and Mira Mesa High School, may offer Korean as a foreign language option, so students might be looking for help with their homework. Similarly, local colleges such as the University of San Diego require credits in Korean for certain degree programs. You may also study Korean in preparation for a trip to Seoul or to add an extra dimension to your resume. Regardless of why you've chosen to study this language, we can enroll you in a San Diego Korean class to help you reach for your linguistic potential.
What topics are generally covered in a San Diego Korean course?
Practice is the key to learning any foreign language, and Korean is no exception. If you don't get regular practice using Korean vocabulary terms, pronouncing Korean syllables, and working with Korean characters, it's never going to stick. Thankfully, enrolling in a San Diego Korean class gives you multiple practice partners in the form of a knowledgeable teacher and fellow students studying the language. If you're a novice, your instructor can patiently answer any questions you have about the fundamentals of Korean. If you're more advanced, entire sessions might be conducted in Korean to give you and your classmates a truly immersive study experience.
Similarly, taking a class can be a great way to work on your written Korean skills. If you've never considered creating an outline for a foreign language, having a convenient reference point to look back to can help you remember words and phrases that you need in the moment. Your instructor can also provide timely feedback on your work, letting you know what you are doing well and anywhere you could improve moving forward.
Students also study the finer points of Korean grammar in their classes. For example, Korean sentence structures follow one of three basic formats: subject-object-verb, subject-verb, or subject-adjective. This means that every sentence ends in either a verb or an adjective, both of which are completely foreign to an English speaker's ears. For example, you would never say "I the sandwich ate" in English, but that's correct in Korean. If you are a little overwhelmed by all of the differences between Korean and English, your instructor can teach you memorization tricks to help you keep everything straight.
How do you structure each San Diego Korean course?
Every class consists of a knowledgeable teacher who has undergone a thorough vetting process and a virtual classroom full of dedicated students. Our exclusive live virtual platform allows you to see, hear, and interact with everybody else in real time, creating the illusion that you're in the same room even if you're actually miles apart. If you have a question, all you have to do is raise your hand.
Interacting with your classmates also offers several advantages. For example, listening to their spoken Korean gives you access to a variety of different accents that more accurately reflect what it would be like to hear spoken Korean. You can also explain concepts to a classmate who may be struggling, reinforcing your own command of the material while simultaneously helping someone else. Studying in a group gives you more value for your money than going it alone, and you reserve the right to arrange private study time with your instructor if you ever feel like you need personalized help with something.
Varsity Tutors also understands how valuable your time is, so we designed all of our products with your busy schedule in mind. We offer multiple Korean courses concurrently, including two-week and four-week options to make it easier to find something you can attend. New courses also start each month, so you never need to wait too long to get started.
