What students are saying

Mr Yoon is a very experienced and talented language teacher. He knows which way works the best for student to learn a new language efficiently. His class is interactive and fun, not typical “go by the book” style, I have never once feel sleepy or tired in the class even though im attending class after work. A really cool teacher! 감사합 니다!

Not your conventional type of classroom environment. Ssam always try to make the lessons more fun, interesting and enjoyable for the students. Aside from learning the language, we also get to learn about the Korean culture. Highly recommend to those who are interested in learning the language and meeting new friends!

Mr. Yoon's class offers a fun-filled, relaxed environment where I can practise using new words and are free to express myself. Participating those recreational activities offered by Mr. Yoon is also an effective way to develop language and communication skills.

If you want to have an interactive and non boring Korean class, Yoon Ssam class is the best choice to go with it. Almost 2 years with the class and never feel boring. It suitable for working group and learn a language in a leisure and comfortable way.
Joanna Tan
We are learning the language in an activity based lesson which doesnt focus only on textbook, but incorporated with activities like quizzes, applying vocabs into lyrics of songs and pictures or posters, as well as discussions or thought sharing with other friends using only korean language.
PL Yong
For those who interested in learning Korean, highly recommend Mr Yoon, a native Korean and funny sir, you won't get bored in the class.. Very lucky to have a teacher dedicated to his teaching. It is clear that he likes the things he does, he really wants his students can write and speak fluent in Korean.
