YES!!!! *throw fist in the air*
Okay, so after so much thoughts (years in exact), I had finally signed up for Korean classes! HAPPY HAPPY ME. So happy that I finally get to cancel something off my bucket list!
Class time is 3 hours, once a week. Pretty intense since I need stay focus throughout the 3 whole hours learning something NEW. Concentrating in class for 3 hours is already so tough.. Wonder how am I going to do this! T_T
But I am confident!! Since I paid $502.90 for it!
Yup, 500 bucks for Korean lesson. All my friends were laughing at me when they heard I paid so much. Some even thought I was crazy.
To be honest, it was really a little crazy to spend $500 because…
1. I don’t earn big bucks and I am a really really poor intern (Donations are welcome ^_^).
2. There are lots of information available online so why spend so much?
Well, I had been wanting to learn Korean since I was 15? 16? but I wasn’t able to afford since I was sooooo poor. Not that I am damn rich now either but since I have some spare cash, why not? Besides, this interest still lingers with me after many years so I knew I had to do it. YOLO GUYS!
As for informations available online, I am not a person who can actually self-study. I tried it for many years (oh what an overused word in this post) but my ability to self-study and focus had been really bad recently!
THIS 500 BUCKS SHALL BE A GOOD INVESTMENT!
I signed up with Singapore Korean International School as it was the cheapest Korean language school in Singapore!! I did the Maths and most of the good schools charged about $21+/hour but SGKIS only charged about $19/hour! I know it’s only a $2 difference but in the long run, it is A LOT OF MONEY.
Besides, I heard SGKIS have the best teachers too! A good teacher is definitely important because they can make so much difference.
Course fees also includes 2 textbooks + 2 workbooks, Yonsei style. You can choose not to buy the textbook from the school and the course will only cost you $433.35, after GST! But to be honest, the textbooks were considered cheap since it was retailing for about $100+ish online, including shipping.
And best part is that these textbooks will be used throughout the Elementary level (3 levels in total)! Super value for money! $_$
Classes are starting on 29 June! Summer’s going to be so exciting! ^^
