    I lived in Seoul for 5 years due to work and so as you can imagine, I had to learn the Korean language in a very short space of time. Just offering my advice to anyone else looking to learn this language and that is to follow the Rocket ‘Learn Korean’ program at:


    It worked very well for me as I was completely fluent in the language in well under a year from following it and I didn’t have to pay massive teacher fees like my work originally advised to me. An absolute life saver :)..
