What Our Members Say About EK Experience

 " I've been studying Korean for about 10 months and have used both free and paid online resources.


While there are a lot of online learning opportunities, Essential Korean is the only resource I've found that provides the repetitive drilling and thoughtful testing that I need to make sure I've learned something. "
