Our Philosophy

We believe that learning Korean as a foreign language (KFL) should be fun and enjoyable. Our Korean lessons eliminate boredom and encourage learners to be more motivated. Our goal is to deliver an effective lesson that stimulates learners’ interest in learning and to have an accurate understanding of given meanings and situations.

Our Philosophy - 온/溫 (warm)

ONLYOU (warm)

We aim for a class where you feel warm(溫).
Teachers in ONLYOU are friendly and approachable. 

Making a mistake is an important part of the learning process. We encourage you to ask questions and not to feel shy about making a mistake. 

We are a close-knit community that has the same interest, the Korean language. You will not only take the class but also make new friends.

ONLYOU (benefit)

You would be a busy working professional, a full-time student, or a mother. You have the heart to invest your time and money in learning Korean despite a busy schedule. However, one class per week can be not enough to improve your Korean skills. Moreover, you have little opportunity to learn naturally and lack exposure to native speakers as we are in Singapore.

Therefore, we select (and review continually) the activities believed to be the most beneficial(利) for you of a given proficiency level. Our goal is not simply to transmit knowledge about the language but to enable actual language use. To this end, a large segment of our classroom activities is based on oral interaction, such as role-play, team play, group discussion, and presentations, etc.

Our Philosophy - 리/利 (benefit)

ONLYOU (flow)

We are teachers and researchers. As a member of the Korean Society of Bilingualism & the International Association for Korean Language Education, we keep track of the latest trend(流) and carry out research on Korean language teaching.
