    Joseph Bankston is taking this course right now, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.

    In Korean with English transcripts.

    Transcripts do not contain relevant information to material being tested. Mostly anecdotal information.

    No course material (no textbooks, no additional notes, no reference material)

    Quiz questions not covered in class lecture.

    Would not recommend.

    One is better off using Syllabus and doing Independent research.
