    We recommend textbook from the King Sejong Institute of the National Korean Language Institute. Their textbook is really in quality and made by seasoned Korean teachers. It is PDF which allows to be shared by both teacher and student on a net screen; however by the mutual agreement, anything can be used. Package class such as K-pops or dialect handle wide range of stuffs; therefore both teacher and student can use their own materials, if agreed.

  5. Who are the teachers?

    EL Korean’s teachers’ pool has large range from Korean education specialists to non-specialists. This would help to meet the needs to the various types of class. Our teachers are selected through direct interviews based on strict criteria by EL Korean who undergo constant workshop for upgrade. They are striving excellence by the exchange of ideas among themselves.
  6. How is the tuition fee determined?

    Tuition fees are determined by each teacher. So tuition fees may vary from teacher to teacher. The way in which teachers set their tuition fees can be determined by their experience as a Korean teacher and their Korean language teachers' qualifications.

    The higher the number of classes, the greater the discount rate of tuition fees. Also, the more students you study with, the more discounts you get.

  7. How can I find the right teacher?

    The desired course needs to be selected with the instruction language at your mobile app or web offered by EL Korean; then the list of teachers will appear after tuition range selection you are willing to pay. More detailed file and the video introduction can be unfolded by clicking the picture. If you come across a favorite one, click the teacher’s timetable and apply for a course in available time.
  8. What is the difference between Professional teacher and Teacher?

    Professional teacher is a teacher who has acquired a Korean language teaching certificate or has a Korean language education experience for 3 years or more.

    The Korean Teacher Certificate is a certificate that only the teacher selected after the rigorous examination and interview of the Korean government can receive it.

    However, the Teacher who is not a professional teacher is also an excellent teacher who was selected after the interview process of EL Korean. If you want more comfortable and diverse classes, it is better to choose a Teacher. If you want more systematic lessons, you need to choose Professional teacher. However, in order to choose a teacher that suits you well, you should also look at the introduction of the teacher and decide on the trial class as well.

  9. How long is the class?

    Each class has 20-minute length. Depends on the topic, it is packaged with 3-session, 5-session, 10-session, 20-session and 30-session. After selecting teacher, take the one best-suits. The trial class lasts 20 minutes, 1-session.
  10. What are two or three students learning together?

    It is the way you learn with your friends and family to study Korean with you. These friends and family must be collected by you.

    You can learn Korean more happily with friends and family with this way. Additional tuition discounts allow you to pay a smaller tuition fee than one-on-one tuition.

    Tuition is paid by you on behalf of your friends or family to study with you. The larger the number of students, the less the tuition fee. If you learn together, you can learn Korean more happily through role play. 

    When you are in class, several people can gather together in one room. You can also study using video chat software separately in each room.

  11. Do I have to apply for all the class schedules at the same time when doing booking request to the teacher? For example, if I apply 10-time class, do I have to apply to all 10 times for the time scheduling?

    No, you do not need to apply for all class schedules. When applying for the first time, you can apply for the number of classes you want like only one or two. Then, when you talk to the teacher about the time of the remaining class that you didn't apply, the teacher will schedule the times of the remaining classes with you. However you have to apply at least the first class time. This is a convenience feature for you.
  12. How can I change my 'My time zone' when scheduling a class?

    'My time zone' which appears at class booking can be set first at the registration. Any changes after the registration can be made from 'Edit my profile' at 'My page'.
  13. What if there is no reply from your selected teacher?

    This happens because of time differences and teacher not always being online. To minimize the responseless period, class offer can be delivered up to three different teachers. Whoever accepts first gets the call; the others will be cancelled. If there is no response from all three within 24 hours, automatic cancellation takes place on all thee offers. The notification message of “Time elapsed. Your class offer has been cancelled. Please find another teacher,” will show up. At this stage, the class offer must be directed to another available teacher. Your request on cancellation of class can be made before 24 hours.
  14. How do I change my scheduled class due to an urgent matter?

    Through EL Korean app or Skype your change can be notified to the teacher 24 hours prior to get-go day. Teachers are also responsible for their own time management; therefore it is required to consult need to manage their own schedules at least 24 hours prior to scheduled class. Rescheduling of class less than 24 hours is not allowed in principle; and student is responsible for the payment of tuition if not proceed.
  15. What happens to the tuition if I fail to turn up without notice?

    If you are absent without prior notice, the class will be deemed to be proceeded and the tuition will not be returned. The teacher has already used her/his time for preparation. If rescheduling is required, contact to the teacher at least 24 hours in advance must be taken. By the mutual agreement, rescheduling is allowed.
