Hanyang University Introduction to Korean Week 2

See Week 1 of the course here.

This is a free course offered on the Futurelearn MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) platform. It lasts for 6 weeks and is designed to take around 3 hours a week. You can sign up now to be e-mailed when the next session opens, which should be within the next 2-3 weeks.

There is a Part 2 of the course (Also 6 weeks, 3 hours per week) starting on 30th April 2018.


I have now completed the course and found that each week definitely did not take the scheduled 3 hours. In fact, you could finish each week within about 20-30 minutes. The course focuses on 2 key phrases every week so the level is very basic. However, it is free and you will have learned some useful phrases by the end so I still think it is worth doing it – just don’t expect to be able to hold a conversation by the end!

Week 2 teaches you how to talk about some sports and activities that you like.

Did you learn how to say something new in Korean?

This course is completely free so I would recommend it as a very basic introduction to the language.
