About

A-KEEP’s Community KSL (Korean as a Second Language) Class is the perfect course for non-Korean speakers and beginner Korean speakers to build a solid foundation of the Korean language in order to continue your learning journey after class. Our course is led by native-Korean Teaching Assistants and advanced-Korean learners to help ensure that you receive authentic education.

A-KEEP’s Community KSL courses are designed to focus on building fundamental skills to help you:

  • Identify and differentiate the Korean language from other East Asian languages

  • Read, write, and pronounce the Korean alphabet

  • Practice customary greetings and introductory phrases

  • Use “formulaic” Korean grammar structures to build vocabulary and grammar skills

The class will introduce teens and adults to Korean language and culture once a week for 12 weeks (10 weeks of instruction) including an orientation and graduation ceremony.


Class Levels Information

A-KEEP’s Community KSL has two language/class levels: Beginner and Intermediate.

The Beginner Level Class has no requirements for entry. This class is best suited for those with no to very little knowledge or skills speaking Korean.
