Attended my first intermediate Korean lesson here in Dallas and I felt kind of disappointed with how the class was taught. Lessons were based on situational role play conversation on the text book. Verbs, adjectives, future tense, present perfect tense and conjugations were all over in one lesson. Pretty much half of the time I was staring blanking at the wall clock.
I preferred the way NUS delivered the lessons in categories with examples. Its much easier to understand and make reference. Topics on the following lessons will include what was taught in the past,which helps us to remember what was taught before.
My classmates had huge difference in competency, which made learning even harder. Time wasted to explain intensively to complete beginners and getting lost when an advanced speaking asked non related high leveled questions. What’s interesting about them are some learners are actually learning the language for their adoptive Korean children. Attending the adult class while their kids are in another elementary class.
Oh well.. self supplementing is a must, least for now. Need to purchase more books :(
