If you're just getting interested in studying Korean or are already an advanced learner, Varsity Tutors will enroll you in a Tucson Korean course that can provide you with the resources you need to reach for your Korean learning goals. We should have a course that works for your lifestyle and schedule, whether you are a student taking Korean courses at the University of Arizona, a student at Desert View High School trying to get a head start on learning new languages, a student at any other area school, or even an experienced professional looking to add a new skill to your resume. Traditional classrooms have their advantages, but they may not always provide students with the amount of practice time they need to learn a new language. A Tucson Korean course will give you access to an online classroom where you'll get guidance from a highly qualified Korean instructor and can practice the language with other learners to build your skills effectively.
How can a Tucson Korean class help me gain proficiency?
Korean is generally considered to be a language isolate, meaning that it has little direct connection to any other languages, although it is commonly thought to share some heritage with Japanese. There are approximately 75 million Korean speakers worldwide, and Korean is the official language of South Korea and North Korea. Native and second-language speakers can also be found in countries like Japan, Russia, and the United States. Korean grammar can seem odd for English speaking learners because it places verbs at the end of the sentence. For example, while in English you might say "I ate the sandwich," in Korea you'd use a structure like "I the sandwich ate." You'll have to pay careful attention to the ends of sentences in Korean, as you won't be able to predict the meaning or tense of a sentence until you've heard the whole thing.
You'll also have to learn how Korean conjugates verbs to agree with the level of formality being used in the sentence. Different levels of speech are used to convey formal, informal, and casual levels of address, depending on the audience they're aimed at. As you practice conjugation, you'll discover how solitary Korean verbs can contain a degree of meaning that would take a whole sentence to convey in other languages. A Tucson Korean class will also help you learn Korean pronunciation, essential vocabulary, and commonly-used phrases.
All of this will be presented online in a virtual classroom. You'll be taught by a skilled instructor and participate in collaborative activities and discussions with your classmates so that you can get plenty of practice in. Learning alongside your peers has been shown to improve students' ability to acquire new knowledge and to better retain information in the long term. Additionally, speaking Korean with other students at your level can be a great way to build your confidence in using the language outside of the classroom. Your instructor will provide you with feedback so you can hone your skills, and you'll be able to request one-on-one sessions if you feel further clarification of a topic is needed. If you find yourself struggling with Korean formal address, for example, you could spend some time working privately with your instructor on ways to identify when that particular speech level is appropriate to use. Depending on your level of proficiency, your Tucson Korean class instructor may choose to teach the class entirely in Korean so you can experience linguistic immersion. These classes have been designed to meet the needs of a variety of students and skill levels and can provide you with multiple paths to reach for your language learning goals.
An online course allows for extra flexibility with regards to scheduling options. There are a wide range of course times on offer, so if you're a Cholla High School student who'd like to learn Korean but feel like school, sports, and extracurricular activities are preventing you from finding a course during the day, we'll be able to help you look for a night or weekend course that will let you pursue your goals. The same goes for any other learner, whether you need something early in the day, over your lunch break, or on the weekends. Also, a Tucson Korean course negates the need for a commute, so you can practice Korean from anywhere you have internet access. This means you'll have one less barrier between you and the consistent language practice that can help you become proficient in Korean.
