The Curriculum

The "Quick Korean" course sequence is designed to teach the Korean language step by step, through 4 levels of difficulty.

We have designed our program so that at the completion of Level 4, students will be able to reach a 3.5 score on TOPIK, the Korean language proficiency exam.
The sequence is designed to bring learners up to a Level-4 knowledge of Korean grammar (as scaled by Korean textbooks and the TOPIK test) and a Level-3 knowledge of Korean vocabulary.
Learners wanting to expand their vocabulary further can consult the companion textbook.

LEVEL 1Covering the fundamentals of social interaction, instruction at this level includes basic communication related to daily activities, including greetings and the rudiments of conversation.

LEVEL 2The content at this level teaches learners how to carry on simple conversations in places like supermarkets and restaurants. Learners are also taught how to express their preferences and opinions about topics that interest them.

LEVEL 3Learners who complete this level would be able to communicate with Koreans in almost every social circumstance and would be able to carry on casual conversations about familiar topics such as work, hobbies, relationships, and family.

LEVEL 4Learners who finish this level of instruction would be able to talk freely and fluently on the topics listed at Level 3 and would even be able to speak at public gatherings.
