by Dollminations completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Overall, this is a very simple introduction to Korean. In each lesson, they will teach you how to speak simple conversational Korean. For example, "where shall we meet" and "Hello, my name is...."

If you are expecting to learn how to write or read korean by using hangeul, or learning hangeul alphabet by alphabet, then this is not the course for you. This is more for people who wants to learn basic conversational sentences.

Also, in each lesson, they will teach you some basic grammar and introduce you to some Korean cultures. There are also listening and speaking test that you can choose to do or not do.
