WHY LEARN KOREAN?

Korean is the official and national language of North and South Korea, with over 79 million speakers worldwide. It shares similarities with Japanese, due to some vocabulary and grammatical structures, but is generally considered a language isolate (not descended from any other language).

There is an increasing demand for Korean language experts, with Korean businesses branching out to India and Indian businesses regularly dealing with Korean clients. Opportunities are endless! Korean culture is rich and fascinating. Learning the language better equips us to understand the place, its people, the cuisines, and the culture.

The Oriental Dialogue’s Korean courses are designed for all age groups, and for learners of all levels. We also conduct preparatory classes specifically for the TOPIK test, the international test of Korean proficiency. 

If you have studied Korean before, or are self-taught, you may skip the earlier levels and start at the level which matches your skill set. You will have to appear for an assessment for us to determine your proficiency so that you can be placed in the correct class. Get in touch with us to arrange for a virtual assessment. 

If you’d like to know more before signing up, join us for a free demo session to get a feel for our classes. For levels 3A and above, contact us for batches.

Levels

Beginners

30 hours, INR 9,440 (Inc. taxes)
The beginners level is for those who have had little or no prior introduction to the language. This level teaches the Korean writing system “Hangul” and the Korean alphabet. Students will learn native Korean numbers which are used to quantify nouns, how to introduce themselves, and demonstrative pronouns — this and that. They will learn to construct simple sentences to express themselves. Students learn basic greetings and how to talk about their interests, the weather, buying items, and exchanging currency among other topics.

Level 1

60 hours, INR 14,160 (Inc. taxes)
Level 1 is for students who have already learnt the basics of the Korean language. This course covers simple present, past, and future tenses and the construction of negative sentences. Students will learn important phrases in Korean, the basics of conjugation (informal polite speech and formal speech), telling time, and talking about cause and effect. We place emphasis on spoken practice and correct pronunciations.

Level 2

60 hours, INR 14,160 (Inc. taxes)
Level 2 is for students who have completed roughly 90 hours of language training. Students will learn to express emotions, use complex conjunctions, modify verbs, and use honorific forms. They will also learn to talk about people and family.

Topik Prep

TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean) is an internationally recognised language test for non-native Korean speakers. There are two levels of TOPIK – I and II.

The 30-hour TOPIK preparatory course helps students prepare for their respective TOPIK levels, depending on their language training. To know which TOPIK is for you, get in touch with us.

Note

Fees are inclusive of all taxes and material. Material will be shared online. With hectic schedules, we understand that it can get difficult to stay on top of learning a new skill. If you miss a few classes, lack clarity on any concepts, or simply want to revise before the next level, you can attend any of our ongoing batches for up to a year from your registration. To ensure nothing stops you from learning, these sessions will be free of cost for you.
