Korean 101 is a part of the Arts & Crafts Korea website for customers interested in learning the Korean language. We won’t be able to offer in-depth language courses (please inquire with your local language institute for this!), but do plan to post simple and useful phrases that can be used in everyday life.
We hope you find this section useful and feel free to comment with what you’d like to see posted! Please understand that we cannot respond to language-related questions.
