  4. How are the classes conducted?

    We offer various methods of learning to cater to different needs of learners:

    • Group by Level: Students will study level by level in a classroom setting. All students in the class will have the same content, and the learning level will be the same. Once completed one level, students will move on to the next level with the same group.
    • Group by DSS (Directed Self-Study): Students will learn at their own pace. This group is for students who have different learning progress. Fast learners can progress faster, and slow learners can learn without following other students’ learning level/progress. Due to the different students’ levels, contents may vary individually. With the ongoing guidance of our instructors, each student will set attainable goals and learn at their own pace. Each learner moves based on their own learning progress and ability. Self-directed learners develop confidence in their skills, as well as a passion for and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.
    • Private Tuition (One-to-One): One-to-one or two to three students in a group, and it is customized by students themselves. Students’ learning levels will be at their own pace.
    • Long Distance Program: The syllabus is well-arranged in the system. Learners can log in to the system to learn anytime, and they can get 1-to-1 tutor guidance via WhatsApp from 10 am to 9 pm every day. Besides, they also have extra weekly Korean speaking sessions with a native Korean on a weekly basis to build up their confidence in conversation.
  5. What is the difference between your center compared to other conventional language centers?

    Our specialized teaching method, DSS (Directed Self-Study), is the main difference as students can learn at their own paces in a group. This teaching method is designed by our center, and our tutors are trained to handle classes for this teaching method. For the same amount of contents, other conventional language centers may take longer to complete, but students enrolled in our center can take a shorter period of time to complete due to their own learning progresses. Therefore, our DSS syllabus is compact but efficient, and you can save time and money.

  6. What are your fees?

    The fees vary according to the location and language courses. All courses include textbooks and learning materials in the fees. A registration fee of RM50 is charged, but it will be waived if students register online within three days of making an inquiry.

Some of them can speak English, Malay, and Mandarin.

  9. Do I need to start from scratch if I have basic knowledge of the language? How are classes arranged according to my level?
