Korean classes in NYC and free resources

Hills Learning has Korean classes in NYC and Online.  Hills Learning philosophy is one learns language from people and through interaction. “Highly Interactive Language Learning” means following their SWIRL teaching method (Speaking-Writing-Intonation-Reading-Listening).  Similar to Korean Digital Academy, they offer small classes (maximum of 8 students) with focus on speaking and listening.

They suggest students adopt the 3-1-1 study method in between lessons; listening and speaking practice 3 times a week, self-study once a week and homework once a week.   The students have lunch-time study circles, which sounds awesome.  (I want a study circle. Still trying to figure out how to manage that.)

They use the Active Korean series for their textbooks, which of course is excellent since it was developed by Seoul National University.

ACTIVE KOREAN series developed by the Language Education Institute of Seoul National University, help learners develop their communicative skills in Korean
