A very nice introductory course for people who (like me) are interested to learn the Korean language but have no previous experience. I have been watching some programmes produced in Korea for the past few years so am familiar with a few phrases but had not formally learned before this. I found the learning curve unsurprisingly steep to begin with as I struggled initially to get to grips with the alphabet and thus got stuck on the first week, but pushed by deadlines I moved on to subsequent weeks lectures anyway with the help of a printed copy of the alphabet to refer to and actually found it easier to improve my command of the alphabet this way. I am now taking "Learn to Speak Korean 1" which is the follow up to this course (although there is some overlapping material) which is equally good.

This was the first MOOC I have taken and I enjoyed it. I was glad to see that there was a Korean course offered in a classroom setting. The Korean alphabet was taught along with other topics like introductions and date and time. I wanted to learn Korean because I watch Korean movies, listen to Korean music, and I have plans to visit Korea too.
I already took both First Step Korean and Learn to Speak Korean 1. This course will definitely prepare you for the next course, Learn to Speak Korean 1.
I started this course last month, I really wanted to do courses and learn korean language as well. This has been really helpful since quizzes and assessments were presented, some questions were also in hangul so you can really practice what you've learned. I spend 4 consecutive days to finish this course. About 2 to four hours per day. The videos were great and can be really understood. Just a question, did you get a certificate at the end and how?

I absolutely LOVED this course. Just the ability to find a FREE Korean resource that still had a classroom structure was amazing in and of itself but then to top it off the course gave a lot of useful points on grammar and everyday conversation. There was also a forum for each week where you could see and post questions that the mentors and staff would answer - THOROUGHLY. And for anyone who audits the course and couldn't make the deadline you could switch sessions as many times as you wanted in order to stay on track and turn your assignments in on time.
I finished this course a while ago and now I'm on the last week for its continuation "Learn to Speak Korean 1" and I will say that the organization and structure for "Learn to speak Korean 1" is better than "First Step Korean" but the information "First Step Korean" provides you will help you be very prepared for the next course.
This course is good for repeating, but too fast for first learner. I'll try to see it one more time later.
For me, who is just starting to learn korean, this program is a milestone in my life. I believe it will be useful for me. I'm very eager to learn korean. I love korean language.By joining this program, I consider it a milestone in my life. I really happy to see this program, and i want to see if i can get a change. I believe this program will be a milestone in my life, so i believe it is something that will open the beginning of my life.
I've completed this course within 2 weeks of time. I found the level of difficulty of this course was easy.
Throughout taking this course I didn't faced any difficulty because everything was easy to understand and all the explanation were understandable. For those who don't have any basic Korean, do not too worry because in this course it taught from the very basic one for the beginner. For example, learning to recognize the Korean alphabet, exposed with few vocabulary, how to compute a sentence, speak Korean from basic words and etc. So overall, throughout this course I really enjoyed learning and doing all the assignments as well as the quizzes.

Nikki Bishop completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
I found that the course started off at a decent pace, and things were explained nicely, with plenty of use of the International Phonetic Alphabet. However, as it went on, the IPA was not being used, and you were only told that 'even the Koreans find these ones confusing' came long after the confusion had arisen. The pace was too fast and it was difficult to learn the whole alphabet in one chunk - I would have preferred to learn it more slowly, but remember more.
