Student Testimonials

  • Very happy with my class experience, as well as the fact that I am able to get so much out of class while it is on Zoom as opposed to in person. My Korean class has a good mix of speaking, writing, listening and reading. I so look forward to my classes as a means to pass the time and connect with people while staying in the house!

  • My instructor is one of the best language teachers I could ever ask for. I really enjoy her classes and learn a lot. Her PowerPoint presentations are always very organized and helpful. My teacher is personable, engaging and makes learning the language really fun!

  • I have a fantastic teacher. I'm looking forward to taking Korean 2 with her if I can. I'm surprised at how much I've learned in the last few weeks. I'm very happy with this school and the online curriculum.

    Kimberly S

  • It's been great! Both my teacher and classmates are dedicated to learning, and we hardly use English. I appreciate the real-life applications and the general environment of the online class, I can tell I am improving. Overall, I really am enjoying the lessons and can't wait for more!

  • Before taking the class my expectations were to be able to speak in Korean with a Korean speaker. I wanted to work on my sentence structure and pronunciation. I also was expecting to listen to my level of Korean. Those needs have been met well. My goal by the end of the class is to be more confident in my sentence structure and pronunciation - to speak less textbook and more natural.

  • I am very happy with this semester. I think my teacher is very thoughtful to each student and makes sure we all understand the material. She is very enthusiastic and encouraging. The curriculum is just right; I am able to follow along just fine. I am learning so much and I’m absolutely satisfied with the progress I have made. Thank you.

  • I am really enjoying my first semester with Hills Learning. My 선생님 is so nice and is always giving us a lot of opportunity to practice speaking Korean, as well as giving us a good push to do so, even if it isn’t always easy. Having online classes fits really well with my current work schedule. I think having the classes online really gives people from all over the opportunity to learn Korean.

    Eloisa S

  • Before taking the class, I assumed I will learn a few more grammar concepts and the imperative form. My goals were met and I made new accomplishments. I reached new milestones I never thought about. Furthermore, I can even express thoughts in Korean. I look forward to writing a detailed paragraph by the end of class.

  • I love this course. I was initially a little apprehensive about a smaller group and what a virtual class would look like, but I ended up really appreciating it all. The small group size makes the class very comfortable. I feel like the amount of material each week is very manageable so that by the end of the course I had fully understood what I had learned and will maintain that knowledge. It was beneficial to have the presentations and recordings after the class to help me study. My teacher is so supportive and patient with me. I would highly recommend taking this course with Hills Learning, and I look forward to continuing to learn Korean with them.

  • I very much like the effort made by Hills Learning teachers to speak almost entirely in the language we are learning as well as their near constant effort to have the students practice speaking. Before taking this class, I wanted to be able to speak more comfortably in varied situations beyond first introductions, and also wanted to learn more about sentence structure. To both ends my class has helped significantly so far.

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.
