Student opinions about Easy Korean Academy, Seoul

Liked
I sincerely loved this school, the teachers and all the administrative staff are very friendly and always ready to help you. I spent 4 months in this school and the progress I made is incredible, I didn't know anything about Korean except Hangeul but today I manage to discuss simple things with people and it's really very pleasant! In short, if you want to progress quickly while enjoying your life in South Korea, you have found the right address!

Constant good follow-up by teachers. The team was good motivating students, with great teaching methods. At the end of my stay, I acknowledged perfectly the basics of the language. I enjoyed the dialogues teacher/student. It was an effort to speak, but the best way to learn.
Disliked
In my point of view, the conversations between students don't add up as we are still doing a lot of mistakes (grammar, structure, etc.). I would have liked to work 4 hours a day instead of 3, in order to put into practice more of what we learned.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I think it would have been good to have added a more nuanced explanation of the relationship between the History of the country, its culture and customs, and the Korean language.

The staff is very nice and responds immediately to requests. My teacher gave very good lessons. I already knew a little Korean and was able to improve my pronunciation through her.
Disliked
I was placed in Level 1 after the test beforehand and after an online meeting. That means you start with the Hangeul alphabet. But I already had A1-2 (according to the international standard). So the first week of the course was really just repetition. I brought this up at school and was immediately offered a higher level. I didn't change because the level seemed too difficult. I was only at the school for 2 weeks. If you already have basic knowledge, you should look carefully at which course suits you. For me, everything was good in the end and I am satisfied.
