I've been learning Korean for over 2 years now. The reason I started learning Korean was because my love for K-Pop, K-drama, Korean make-up, culture and pretty much anything that's Korean related. I wanted to watch a drama without needing to wait for the subs to come out. I wanted to know what's written on the make-up package. Most importantly, I wanted to communicate with my Korean friends using their language.
I look forward going to class every week. Isabelle is an amazing teacher!! The small group class allows us to have more interaction with the teacher and students. Class wasn't just listening to the teacher going on and on for 2 hours about topics that is irrelevant to us and will never get to use. We get to practice speaking, listening, reading and writing about topics that we will encounter every day. All the material taught are VERY useful in real life. Role playing with fellow classmates was one of the activities I really enjoy. It allows us to prepare for real life situations like ordering food, shopping at a store, chatting about what we did over the weekend with friends and even interviews at Korean companies (for those that wants to work in Korea!!!)
Class is SUPER fun, everyone is super friendly. Isabelle is more like a friend than a teacher. She would joke around with us, talk about K-Pop and K-drama just like every other fan girls out there. =P I'm so happy that I decided to learn Korean with Isabelle. Now I can watch drama without needing to look at every line in the subtitles, I know what's written on the makeup package and I am able to communicate with my Korean friends. ^^
