yup, she's still there.
but you might not get her classes, depending on what classes she have at that time.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I am very interested to join the next intake on korean basic 1, I have a few questions in mind to check with existing students.


1. How big is the class size?
2. How is the pace ? too fast/ slow?
3. In order to be able to communicate fluently, how many levels should i be going for inorder to meet that very basic conversation?


I am totally new and have no exp in korean languages. Can you please share with me your experience as in pro and cons on NUX.

Thank you very much.

1. for korean basic level 1, its abt 20++... e class may starts to shrink as u progress to following levels

2. pace wise is different across different teacher, but roughly one chapter per 2.5hr based on the textbook

3. not sure how u define basic fluent conversation, probably e whole of basic level, i.e 1 - 6?

for level 1 - 3, you are taught
-basic grammer
e.g. this is an apple, i am walking, etc
-past tense, future tense
-numbers
-how to inquire opinion, polite request, provide suggestion


i hav also started my korean classes without any knowledge of the language. but first few levels are alright, especially if u watch korean dramas or do the homework.
its a little difficult for e teacher to focus or aid e weaker students as they hav a curriculum schedule to follow. most students hav no problem wif e pace thou.

my teacher also uses english quite frequently, it does help in understanding, but doesnt improve on my listening. there are classes taught in korean thou, so tt largely depends on ur teacher.

nex is still a business entity, so if ur class gets too small, they juz axe e nex level. n u will hav to wait until they hav sufficient students to begin a new class. otherwise, you would just hav to wait 1-2 weeks to begin the next level.

hope tis helps

i'm doing intermediate level nowadays.
the grammar's killing me.
i think last time basic level 1-6, mine was using sogang textbook. about 1-2 new grammar per week.

intermediate, expect about 4 grammar.
needs to really put in extra time to revise and practice.
