I initially started studying Korean through free resources online, but I found that Verb Hive's class structure and flow helped me progress much faster and understand the lessons in greater detail than I would have if I continued by myself. 😊


제임스 선생님 was very nice and always made sure that concepts were explained as clearly as possible. Classes would just fly by–they won't feel like three hours if that's a concern haha. 진짜 재밌었어요!


It's worth acknowledging that I've learned so much in just ten weeks, although naturally expectations should be managed since that period can only cover so much. Overall, it was a very enjoyable course and I am looking forward to learning about the language even more through Korean 2! 🫶🏻
