Hi KoreanLA'ers!

This may be a late notice, but I hope you will be able to join free classes this weekend. (I created an event, but for some reason, it didn't go through. I double my apologies.)

If this announcement does not apply to you, please pass it on to your friends! They may have been secretly looking for something like this! :)

It's been a while since we offered Korean classes and workshops. Your KoreanLA staff is gearing up to resume fun and useful classes and workshops. I hope you feel as excited about it as we are!

GET READY FOR LANGUAGE EXCHANGE: the classes and workshops will help you be ready for upcoming language exchanges. While it is not mandated to take classes to attend language exchange, we strongly recommend that you do. Your language exchange will be more fun and productive when you know what you want to practice.

Let's learn and grow!

"AFTER"?

It's a Korean socio-cultural tradition that after the meet-up, we usually hang out for a cup of coffee or tea - or even dinner and Norebang. Koreans call it an "After." We will not be observing that tradition this time. However, please plan on staying a little longer after the class so that we can chat and get to know each other! :)



---------------
LAST MINUTE CHANGES

Class will not be cancelled unless there's unforeseeable situation. In 15+ years of doing this, I never cancelled events, so that says something! :)

If you have Twitter account, please follow @KoreanLA. I'll tweet updates, if any.
