This may be a late notice, but I hope you will be able to join free classes this weekend.
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!
***** ABOUT US *****
The Korean Language and Culture Club - Los Angeles ("The KoreanLA") is a friendly group of people, organized around our interest in the Korean language and culture. We are a diverse group with diverse interests and represent all levels of speaking, reading, and writing Korean language.
In order to promote learning of the language and culture, we organize various events to meet and practice speaking Korean, participate, attend cultural events such as Korean festivals and museums, try different Korean venues such as restaurants, entertainments places, and even throw our own fun parties!

You will find it easier if you know a little bit about Hangul. If you don't, be ready for the class that will move really fast. You will do just fine!
WHAT WE WILL GO OVER:
We will write, hear and speak Korean as much as we can. So bring your pencil and a notebook!
+ Korean writing system (Hangul)
+ Pronunciation drills
+ Basic grammar
+ Basic daily expressions
+ Common restaurant expressions
(1) Hangeul: You do not have to have mastered Hangul in order to attend this workshop. But knowing a little bit about it will help you keep up with the class. Download "Hangeul Matrix" here: http://files.meetup.com/217092/HangeulPractice.pdf. Acrobat Reader is required to view this file.
We will not spend much time to "learn" Hangeul, but we will skim through it. If we can get enough people, I will also hold Hangul Crash Class right before this class. Please see the calendar.
(2) All study materials will be provided in the classroom. If you must preview what we'll be doing in the class, here's a taste of it: Essential expressions - http://files.meetup.com/217092/Essential%20Expressions%20-%20Very%20First%20Few.pdf

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! :)
