“Every instructor in Rolling Korea is so kind and teach everything easy to understand. I had a nice time in Rolling Korea making many friends and studying with them. If you plan to study in Korea, come to Rolling Korea! And Jun Mi teacher, you are so pretty!”
Have you ever wondered what learning the Korean language is like behind a science? If learning Korean is this good, I could continue learning Korean all day long. The key to learning a new language is to put yourself in a test. I’ve learned Korean in other schools before I come to Rolling Korea. They stuck to an old teaching system – trying to teach everything from the textbook. Rolling Korea approaches differently on this matter. They put what you’ve learned into a test with activities.
It’s quite fun to watch what people say in desperate situations at activities. Even though you have to speak Korean only, people can’t help themselves not to speak their mother tongue. The words coming out of their mouth is all mixed up with Korean, but Rolling Korea firmly believes that it is a process of learning Korean. Relentless laughter creates positive energy, and it helps our brain adapt quickly to Korean.
The science behind activities to learn Korean astonished me with great respect.
Learning the history behind the Korean language was fascinating. Rolling Korea is a hidden gem underneath the vast ocean. Studying Korean at Rolling Korea for a month is full of heart-warming memories. In Korea, people seldom say I or me. They say “Woori” meaning we or us in English. As a westerner, I never had such community-driven experience. In Woori, staff, teacher, and students are united as one. We study, play, eat together. The word “Woori” strengthened as Korea undergone World War 2 and Korean War. Everyone heavily suffered from hunger. In a word “Woori,” people shared scarce food and stayed strong. It was the time when Korean people asking “Did you eat?” as hello, worried about each other’s health. The custom continues up until today.
Learning a language is more than learning words. It represents the people’s spirit. It contains people’s past and future. Every time I learn a brief history behind a word, emotions struck me from head to toe. Thank you Rolling Korea for the great memory.
To be honest, I was a bit afraid to come to Korea to learn Korean and K-pop all by myself, but it didn’t last long. The anxiety melted away on the first day of Rolling Korea. Teachers, staff, and new friends from other countries greeted me with a big smile. The compact class system helped me to get constant feedback from teachers. Quality of the class was second to none. With great visual aids and examples, I could glide through troubled part of Korean language.
I should mention K-pop class as well. I’ve never danced this hard in my life. The dance room filled with loud music pumped me up, and I couldn’t stop dancing. K-pop singing teacher, Song-i, is kind and passionate. She helped a lot in pronunciation and vocalization. I can sing Exo’s Growl now in proper Korean!
Studying in Rolling Korea was dreamy summer days of my life. I’ll miss you all and definitely will come back later. Until then, au revoir!
