Course testimonials:

  • said: The handouts were a excellent help to keep up with the course timetable. My greatest difficulty was reading what was written on the whiteboard. The use of darker & thicker pens would be helpful. I would commend Shinobu for her teaching & patience.

  • said: 5 Stars!

  • said: The instructor (Michelle) was fantastic. She is extremely knowledgeable and lets us go at our own pace whilst still pushing us to ensure we are continuously learning. She is friendly, approachable and happy to answer any and all questions. She is a real asset to Sydney Community College's team. The topics learned were essential for beginner Korean and will be useful in my further study/day to day use.
