Koreanclass101 has developed thousands of, mostly audio, lessons for Korean language learners. It’s excellent for those who want to improve their listening. The grammar and vocabulary content is also really good, being both clear and detailed. It can, however, be difficult trying to find the right lesson at the right time and the lack of a clear learning path could cause problems. It’s a handy tool to use alongside other resources or lessons but probably shouldn’t be used as a standalone course.
Mostly good, but some of the older lessons weren’t great.
A ton of material for beginner and intermediate levels but limited at the advanced level.
The vast library of listening material makes a subscription worthwhile.
Tons of listening material from the beginner up to the intermediate level which can be tricky to find in Korean.
The lesson notes were great for getting the grammar across and offered a lot of detail.
Really good to use on your phone, whether it was vocab or a quick lesson I wanted to fit in when I had some time, it was good to have an integrated app.
I DON’T LIKE…
The presenters spoke in English a lot, which at the higher levels should probably have been reduced.
If you’re at an advanced level or looking for reading, writing, or speaking practice this probably isn’t going to be of much use for you.
The learning flow was very chaotic, trying to find lessons or knowing if they were of good quality was sometimes a crapshoot.
