Korean Language Workshops: Beginners & Intermediate

UPDATE (Feb[masked]):

(1) The venue has been updated. To minimize the cost, we are going back to a local Korean cafe in Koreatown. Thank you for your understanding my effort to keep the classes free of charge.

(2) Unfortunately we will not have separate workshops happening concurrently. However, since this is all about practice, everyone up to low and mid-intermediate should find it comfortable. See below for schedule.

It's time to resume our monthly workshop for the year 2013!

How is a Workshop different from the "Intensive" we've been having?

For those who are not familiar with "workshops":

While "intensive" is focused on delivering information in an intensive manner (duh), workshop is focused on application of the knowledge. In other words, they're more hands-on.

What it means for language workshops: it is all about practicing that you learn/learned so that you can actually use them in your daily lives; and drilling down phrases so that they will become your muscle memory. Korean instructor and native speakers will be there to guide you through. Grammar points will be provided to you as necessary.

FYI: what we had in September last year, and intensive boot camp: http://koreanla.blogspot.com/2012/09/BeginnerIntensive201209.html. Please see below for this weekend's schedule.

What Level Are These For? Can I come?
As long as you have some knowledge in Hangeul and basic sentence structure, you will do fine. Otherwise, you may struggle a little bit, but you will get a lot out of the workshop anyway. If you are a beginner or novice, I strongly recommend that you come to the first lesson.
