- Class review from the website – “I do not regret the teacher I chose. In my case, I live in the United States, but my conversation level is not very high, so I sometimes find myself having to explain in Korean, so I chose this one teacher’s class. I don’t have a lot of free time because I’m studying and working at the same time, but the teacher generously gave me studying tips during my spare time or while I’m driving. My teacher immigrated to America much earlier than I did, so he had a good idea of the kind of situations I could get involved in and taught me how to respond in those situations. If you are or are about to become an immigrant and want to improve your conversational skills, I think it would be a good idea to learn on AmazingTalker. I trust my teacher and will continue to study with him! Thank you!”
