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!

YongJin follows your pace and pushes you to the following step. He is very flexible and despite having only 1 hour per week, I'm making progresses ! I love the combination of vocabulary / conversation and grammar which gives structure to the content. and I also love his knowledge of context, Chinese/Japanese roots of the words, which can make it easy for occidental cultures to memorize new words.
