Conversational Korean Classes

Korean is the official language of South Korea, so it’s very useful to learn how to converse if you’re heading out this way for a trip, want to chat with Korean friends, talk with family members, or maybe better understand your favorite Korean dramas or K-Pop without subtitles! Our Atherton College volunteers will guide you through basic words, phrases, and sentences. Everyone will be encouraged to practice together and have fun!
