What sparked your interest in Korean language and culture?

Although Korean is my mother tongue, I had to re-learned it as a foreigner (long story). So I've been able to work with it from a foreigner's POV with native fluency. I am forever intrigued by Korean language & culture both as a native & a foreigner.

What level of Korean language do you speak? Are you currently learning and/or practicing? If you are a native speaker, please e-mail the Organizer to volunteer to help others learn. Thank you!

Native: expert enough and always learning. And yes, I'd LOVE to help; that's why I am here! I have been teaching Korean language and culture, started off as a college lecturer and came to focus on corporate training and Korean program consultant. Currently, I offer group and private lessons both online and off line. My online courses are the most popular. So now I have both private and group classes on line, 5 days a week.

What would you like to gain from this group? Things to do? Places to go? We organize events around your interests and suggestions.

I am a professional instructor; but the main goal for this group is social. I have been teaching Korean to non-Koreans for last 20+ years, and teach teachers. So I will do my best to offer what I know best - offering classes. The group was moved to this site because meetup.com is designed for off-line meetups, and it works really well for the group. I hope to gain your trust and your friends, and I hope you will be able to gain something out of this group! THINGS OTHERS CAN'T GUESS ABOUT ME: (1) My ancestry, both paternal and maternal. You will have to ask me! (2) English is my co-mother tongue, and I wrote professionally for media and universities. I also taught English to native English speakers. I bet dollars to doughnuts you will think otherwise when you hear me for the first time and continue to hold your first impression. Most people do - and it's works for me!

Have you ever visited Korea and how did you like it?

In 2005 for pleasure and a couple of times before then for business. "Strangers with familiarity."
