Free Weekly Korean Language Lesson 스터디 모임 & Culture Exchange DC VA MD Korea Wave


스터디 모임!

& Korean/American Cultural Exchange

Studying a language requires exposure to the language.  Make time to hear and speak the Korean language, to help yourself learn.

Whatever your level, join us as we explore the Korean language and culture.  This is a good event for people to attend for their first meetup!  Hundreds of people have attended since we started the event in 2012... our most popular event series. 

Can't read the headline for this event?  The Korean hangul characters "스터디 모임" we learned in an earlier meetup means "study moim" or study meeting/gathering.

도와주시겠어요? Native Korean language speakers welcome to join us as well, to help us learn the difficult parts of Korean, and to find language exchange partners & meet new friends.

Post if you need a metro station or other pickup.

The location has been nice to allow us to meet there, because it helps to give us a place to gather at no cost.  If you attend you do not have to buy anything, but it helps if you do!  They have a nice selection of items, and it is a small business with people who live in our area.  Also, health studies show we are happier when we help others.  Buying for another person can improve your happiness, and being happy has been shown to help with things like learning languages.  

The event usually lasts for about 2 hours, and many people join for a dinner after the event at a local restaurant (usually Korean food).  The dinner location isn't usually decided until after the event starts, and we sometimes get special discounts or other benefits.

    I work Sundays, but I will try to make it by 330. I am sorry if I get there a few minutes late. Will be my first time attending. Very exciting

    It will be our first time attending, i guess someone could guide us on what to purchase and how the classes will progress.. Thank you :)

      Fania: If this is your very first time, I suggest that you look at the materials that other people bring today. THen you can go out and get the materials you want from a bookstore or library that are suited to you. This is not a formal "class", rather, everyone studies independently at their own pace, with guidance and help as necessary from the native speakers. I hope this helps.

    If you do not have any study materials though do not feel pressured to buy anything though right away, there are those in the group willing to share our materials if you dont have anything, or in case you forget your study materials

    For all the newcomers, I'll have a sign on the table that reads "Fun Korean Waves Meetup" . I also suggest that you come with some study material, such as a book or an app loaded on your laptop or tablet.
