Private Classes for Adults


Would you like to get the best out of your experiences traveling to Korea? How about you’re interested in K-Pop or K-Dramas, and would like to understand them without subtitles? How about you’re a Korean heritage speaker, and would like to develop your skills professionally in the workplace?

Hills Learning’s curriculum for Korean comprises both language and cultural instruction. For each class, we follow our SWIRL methodology, developing at least three of the five language skills per class. Our main goal for Korean private lessons is to develop conversational skills, but we also specialize in test prep (TOPIK and others), cultural etiquette, business, or just general language acquisition.

Within this basic framework, Hills Learning’s staff develops curriculum and assessments based on student needs and goals. Private lessons are a unique opportunity for students to learn Korean at their own pace.


Private Classes for Teens and Kids (Tutoring)

Are you (or your young teen) interested in learning about the Korean language and culture? How about your teen watches hours of kdrama or loves kpop, and would like to learn the Korean language? Maybe your teen wants to eventually travel to Korea or study abroad?

Hills Learning offers a unique opportunity for teens learning Korean in private lessons. We can not only teach them the basics of the alphabet (Hangeul), reading, writing, and conversation, but it’s also possible that the classes your teen is taking with us can be transferred to their respective high school or college for credit. Please see for credit for further information.

Other Lesson Types

Korean Online Lessons give you the opportunity to learn Korean with us even if you cannot commute to our center in New York City. Students can attend Korean classes through the comfort of their own home using a handheld device or a desktop / laptop computer. We have options for students to take Korean with us either in a private lesson format or a group lesson format.

For private lessons for online students, we arrange a schedule like we would with regular Korean private lessons, matching the student availability with the teacher's. We usually skype or zoom for online Korean lessons but there are other programs that we are also open to using.

There is also an option for taking Korean group classes online. Currently during COVID-19, all of our group classes are being offered online. Once we start offering face to face NYC classes again, there still will be options to take group classes with us online. Please either visit the online page for Korean classes online to see more details or contact us for any further information.
