acquiring new language within Korean conversation (helping any native speaker teach you something new)

Expected time commitment

While the expected time commitment depends on how detailed you want your target phrases to be, we estimate that most learners spend about 1 hour/day, Monday-Friday.​ We highly encourage you to take advantage of the native speaker facilitator by asking all the questions you have (translation, cultural usage, etc.)

Group practice sessions

Join a native speaker facilitator and other participants in three (3) live meetings over Zoom throughout the course of the boot camp. These sessions are designed to put into practice everything learned cumulatively up to that point. Session dates for summer 2024:

  • June 8 (orientation)

  • June 23, July 7, July 21 
    [All meetings are 7-8 pm CST on Zoom]

Language tasks with feedback

Each "lesson" has an accompanying language task which prompts you to speak the target phrases in a given communicative context. We challenge you to customize the phrases from the lesson to the degree of detail you want to communicate, and your native speaker facilitator will provide you with personalized feedback each time so that you can sound natural and fluent. 

Accountability features

This boot camp aims to provide accountability for you to meet your goals through our recently implemented study-buddy system (optional). We also offer a Final Speaking Test to evaluate whether the objective was met (ability to hold a 10-minute conversation with a native speaker). The final test is optional, available for $35 test fee. 

Topics / Domains

Learners will improve their speech flow and level of detail when expressing the following topics:
