Korea is rich with heritage, delicious food, and stunning views, so we don’t blame you for wanting to learn the language.
Unfortunately, it’s easier said than done. While there are endless resources out there that claim to help you become fluent, not every course lives up to its name.
Whether you’re obsessed with understanding your favorite K-drama or you simply wish to visit this beautiful country, we’ve compiled a list of the best and worst Korean courses for you to learn from.
We’ve grouped them into four tiers with our favorites first and the ones you’d be better off avoiding in the final tier.
We rated them on factors such as quality of the lessons, comprehensiveness of the course, and value for the cost.
While our favorite courses are in the first tier, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should disregard the courses in lower tiers. Everybody is unique and will have different preferences when it comes to what they look for in a Korean course.
Having said that, these rankings come from countless hours spent testing the courses.
This also isn’t an exhaustive list of useful resources for learning Korean. To prevent it from becoming even more ridiculously long, we’ve limited this list to strictly courses. So, some excellent resources such as italki, where you can find affordable tutors, wasn’t included as it’s not exactly a course.
Anyway, let’s take a closer look at each of these courses so you can figure out which one is the best fit for you.
