Hello everyone! My name is YONGJIN (용진).
I was born and grew up in Korea. I speak Korean natively and I have learned English, Japanese and Spanish by heart either through formal educations or extensive travel. Over ten years living, working and traveling oversea. All four languages are tools to help facilitate our learning process.
I have a passion for teaching languages, and I love helping people learn Korean. I believe I have natural abilities to teach languages that I can communicate very well with people regardless of one's backgrounds.
I am gentle, attentive and open-minded. I will be looking after your progress. Please give it a try!
I've been teaching Korean for years at private language schools and volunteer organizations(NGO) in various countries.
I will be speaking to you in Korean during the lesson, unless you're a beginner. We will discuss it in more details on the first lesson. (speaking ratio between Korean and other languages to explain). Whether you never learned any foreign languages or not, I will help you build the foundations, boost your motivation and to be more confident in speaking.
In this online learning platform, the lessons have to be highly interactive. To be able to do that, I want the lessons to be 80-95% conversational. Interactive communication is the key to improving overall Korean language, and it enables you to learn more practical and colloquial Korean. That being said, I will also cover grammar and usage of Korean, let alone conversational elements. I will promise you that the lesson will be educational, useful, street-smart and informative. Each lesson, You'll be learning conversations in certain places. Imagine, you're actually in that place, and you need to speak Korean to get what you want. We can also talk about certain topics such as social issues, life in general in Korea etc. I have charts, dialogues, topics to discuss and role play materials ready for the first-time learner and experienced learners. Plus, I have a physical whiteboard right behind me to support explanations in more details.
I look forward to seeing you on the first trial lesson.
Stay focused and keep being motivated!

*Complete Beginner Level (Level 0) Welcome!
안녕하세요! Hello, everyone. I am Juyoung, a Korean Tutor. I was born, raised and educated in Seoul, the capital of South Korea. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Korean Language and literature and completed the Korean Teacher Education Program. I also have 6 years of teaching experience.
My experience living in India, Laos, Egypt, and Belgium as a foreigner has given me a deep understanding of different cultures and people. Language is a product of its culture, so learning a language requires an understanding of each other's differences based on our shared humanity.
Most of the students who started studying with me became more fluent and accurate Korean speakers. During the lesson, I successfully encourage students to use Korean from an early stage on. My teaching style helps students improve their conversational Korean and speak naturally. I will teach you expressions and phrases to sound like a native speaker.
I understand that every student is different and learns at their own pace. As a teacher, it is my job to find the best solution to help you improve.
Are you a complete beginner? That's okay! Let's start with the basics, such as correct pronunciation and conversational Korean skills. I'll help you develop the confidence you need to communicate effectively in Korean.
If you already know the alphabet, I can help you take your Korean to the next level. I use a variety of teaching methods and resources to make learning Korean fun and engaging.
I’ll provide presentations, materials(text book, news article, video clips, also on your need and interest) and homework to help you succeed.
Contact me today for a free consultation to learn more about how I can help you achieve your Korean language learning goals. In the trial class, I’ll measure your Korean proficiency and introduce you to our teaching methods. Together, we’ll make a plan to achieve your goals.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I'm a native Korean, born and raised in Seoul, specifically in Gangnam. I completed my entire school journey in Gangnam, from elementary to high school. My life's adventures didn't stop there; I've lived in different countries, including Australia, Malaysia, Germany, and Italy. I now call France 🇫🇷 home.
I dedicated over 12 years to playing the piano during my childhood and pursued a degree in Hotel Management in Australia. Leveraging my hotel management background, I worked as a flight attendant in Germany. For about two years, I followed my dream in Italy, especially in the region of Sicily. I'm captivated by the film "Cinema Paradiso."
Beyond cultural explorations, I have a deep love for the ocean and sports. I've taught Korean for over 4 years, having experienced the challenges of learning different languages myself, I understand how you might feel. I'm passionate about teaching Korean and am studying for the Level 2 Korean teacher certificate.

I customize my teaching methods to suit your needs, whether you're a beginner or looking to advance your Korean proficiency. We'll focus on practical language skills, engaging in conversations, ordering food, traveling, and effectively communicating with native speakers. We'll also explore Korean culture, from traditional customs to modern trends, including K-Pop and K-Drama. My goal is to make you a confident communicator in Korean.

We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the 'Help' button in the bottom-right. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak Korean fluently. That said, some students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Korean as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
Most of the Korean tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Online Korean lessons are sometimes taken to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Korean tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and we require that they can speak English too.
Each tutor is different - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right Korean tutor for you.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
Our booking system is designed to be incredibly easy to use. You can see tutors' available hours in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to purchase them one at a time, or buy in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Note that this can only be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. This rule is required to protect tutors, who lose income when lessons are cancelled at the last minute.
Sometimes students feel uncertain about learning Korean online because they think it’ll be totally different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen Korean tutor online, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
If you live in the US or Europe, face-to-face Korean lessons may cost anywhere between $20 and $60 (USD) per hour. Online tutoring tends to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel to you. An online Korean tutor could cost anywhere from $13 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, Korean tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced Korean tutor is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 Korean lessons with a great teacher.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take lessons, you can use a free app such as Duolingo to build your vocabulary. And to improve your listening skills, you can watch TV and listen to podcasts in Korean. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take 1-on-1 lessons that are tailored to your needs by an experienced online Korean teacher.Arabic tutors | Chinese tutors | Dutch tutors | English tutors | French tutors | German tutors | Greek tutors | Italian tutors | Japanese tutors | Portuguese tutors | Romanian tutors | Russian tutors | Spanish tutors | Swedish tutors | Thai tutors
