My 10 years of teaching Korean in Hong Kong has been the best time of my life and I’m looking forward to continuing this positive experience and sharing it with many more students. With my knowledge and experience, I would like to develop and implement effective and interesting curriculum for those who wish to study Korean, and I would love to become a firm cultural bridge between Korea and Hong Kong by developing interesting cultural programs as well. Come! Let’s have fun together.

I have always been interested in teaching Korean to foreigners. While I was teaching in Hong Kong and China, I learnt a lot of cultural differences and how to teach Korean to foreigners, especially to those who have never studied Korean before. My 5 years of teaching experience has allowed me to refine my teaching method and explanations to benefit the overall understanding of my students. As Korean culture and language is becoming more famous and widespread all around the world, please don’t hesitate to learn Korean. Speaking Korean will bring you change of your life.

I have been working with people from all over the world and most consider Korean the most difficult language to learn. Since K-pop and K-drama have become increasingly popular all over the world, a lot of people want to learn Korean and experience Korean culture. I would like to offer all our students the opportunity to come to our school and get to know Korean language and culture.
