Korean Everyday Conversation (일상회화)

다 와 가 (I am almost there)

다 와 가 is used when we say that we almost arrived at the appointed place to the person who we are supposed to meet.  We normally use 가다 when we are moving towards the target place instead of 오다 which is used when someone is moving towards the speaker.  For example, if we are at school, we say 학교에 와 (come to school) or 집에 가 (go home) to the listener.  On the contrary, if we are home, we say 학교에 가 (go to school) or 집에 와 (come home).  However, you have to pay attention to the fact that we say 다 와 가 by using 오다  even though the speaker is moving towards the listener.

Tuesday Night Speaking Class for All Levels!

SPEAK KOREAN CONFIDENTLY WITH CONVERSATION PROGRAM

Practice, Practice, Practice!

From Hangul (ㅏ,ㅑ,ㅓ,ㅕ, ㄱ, ㄴ, ㄷ, ㄹ) to 죄송한데, 화장실이 어디에 있나요? This program is open to ALL levels!  

“Practice makes perfect.” Imagine you dedicate two hours a week to studying Korean online or in class, and then you turn off your computer (and brain) and leave your Korean aside until next week. Everything you learned the previous week will either be lost or require a long review. This pattern can be repeated the next week, and the next week, and the next week…

If improving your speaking is your goal, try to practice speaking at least once a week. 

Let’s take a look at a few excellent ways to practice speaking:

  • Speak with native speakers. Don’t let their perfect accents scare you. If you meet a native Korean speaker, don’t be shy. Greet them in Korean and watch them light up and complement you on your Korean!
  • Speak with other learners. You’re not alone! Odds are that if you’re reading this, you’re no stranger to the internet and all the resources it provides for learning new things and meeting new people.
  • Talk to yourself. It’s easy to forget how much time we spend in our own inner dialogues in our native language on a daily basis. This dialogue can be turned into wonderful practice simply by translating it into Korean!

Now, if you are ready to practice – Join conversation class today! Yes, ANY level can join! We can practice from Hangul to simple & complex sentences.

Conversation class meet once a week for 30 minutes each time. This class consist of exercises and discussions on different topics, as well as listening and pronunciation practice.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

The Conversation program is different from the other courses that I offer because the lessons focus on listening and speaking. Students in the Conversation program will focus on different skills, including:

  • Communication: Learn techniques to ensure your audience understands your message.
  • Slang and Idioms: Master informal Korean by learning to recognize everyday expressions.
  • Pronunciation: Perfect your Korean by practicing specific vowel and consonant sounds, as well as rhythm and intonation.

Additionally, the curriculum in each class gives students exposure to global and local issues while challenging them in role-play and real-life situations.
