That you have foundations in some foreign languages actually means that you should be able to form expressions with basic words on your own and speak them in those languages. This course has been designed to help you have sufficient practice through an organized and systematic approach so that you can form and speak basic Korean expressions on your own.
Build up Korean Foundations through an Organized Practice
Practice Makes Perfect
The reason why it's difficult to build up foundations through the traditional language courses is they mainly focus on the delivery of linguistic knowledge rather than practice. That's why most people from countries such as Korea, China and Japan don't speak English well even though they are taught English in public education. This course, therefore, focuses much on organized and systematic practice.
You will learn only a few selected words from this course. Learning too many words in a foundation course is not only frustrating but also unnecessary to beginners. What you need in order to build up foundations in Korean is not the words but a skill to form an expression with a few selected words.
