This is a great course for beginners looking to learn Korean. While it is not perfect, taking notes during the lectures, revising them and putting what you learned into conversationcan really make learning through this course easier.
You can download Google's Korean keyboard onto your smartphone and use apps like HelloTalk to practice conversing in Korean.
I thought the pace of the course was alright. There is no one sure shot way to learn a language and every person has a different method of learning. This course provides the right learning materials and guidance to help you learn but ultimately, it is up to you to do it. Remember, don't give up. Good luck!
