Private Lessons at ONLYOU Korean Language School

Private class is a one-to-one lesson with a native Korean teacher. This course is recommended to learners who are not able to attend regular classes due to lack of spare time. A lesson with 2 or up to 3 students is also possible in this case the students have to make their own group interested in taking the class together with one teacher.
Private classes are available for booking on weekday afternoons (Mon - Fri only) at ONLYOU Korean Langauge School.


How to structure your private lesson course:

Choose which day(s) you would like to attend classes on a weekly basis for the duration of your course. Students may book 1 hourly, 1.5 hourly, or 2 hourly private lessons. The frequency of private lesson course structures can be customised according to the student's preferences, from once-a-week classes to five-times-a-week classes!

In Private Lessons, students cover the standard school syllabus and will be eligible to receive Certificates of Completion for each completed course if they cover the standard school syllabus following the standard school course structure. The teacher will cover the standard syllabus according to their pace (either at a pace faster or slower than regular class pace) to suit the student's individual learning needs in a more customized manner. Students may also request that the teacher also cover some additional topics of interest during class instead of exclusively covering school syllabus.

Private Lessons can be conducted for all levels, from Foundation to Advanced course. For students who already have prior Korean Language knowledge, please contact the school to take a placement test to find out which level is recommended for you to start with.
