This set of Korean tutorials are less specific and more targeted at those who want to get a range of different things from learning Korean. Even though all novice students will cover survival Korean: enough Korean to make a visit to the country or make good contacts with the locals, but what do you do from there? It depends on your needs. Those who have benefitted from these lessons have been those moving or investing overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people who love to travel all over the world, those interested in Korean culture, and those who just want to pass a specific examination in Korean.
These Korean Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn Korean to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette, at higher levels reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even on our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic Telephone Korean and e-mail Korean skills for communications as well as Survival Korean required for short visits to a country.
The Korean lessons are also available for 2 or more people studying together (Two-to-One Korean Lesson or Small Group In-Company Korean Lesson). All participants must have the same level, the same business or general language needs and be able to study at the same time in the same location. The booking must be made for all participants at the same time. Listen & Learn do not recommend group classes of more than 6-8 people although In-Company Taster Korean Lessons can be run with up to 12 people.
