Student Reviews

"I enjoyed the class and the way Professor Kim explained things."

“The instructor was knowledgeable, well-prepared, down to earth, engaging, and entertaining. I wanted to text her after the class ended because I was able to successfully order in Korean and I wanted to show off to her! Also I really appreciated my other classmates who were dedicated learners and fun to learn with.”
