Welcome to the interior circle. So right here we deliver you tried and examined studying strategies that can assist you attain your studying targets this yr. I am Kyejin and I am joined by my co-host, the founding father of Revolutionary Language, Peter Galante. Hello, everybody. So Kyejin, we’re again for 2024. Completely happy New Yr. Completely happy New Yr. And also you’re in my seat. I wish to… That is my seat. Legally, that is my seat. Okay. Okay. So this can be a very totally different format. So this yr we’re really doing video, proper? And there is some very nice benefits to this. We are able to present you the way we’re finding out and among the strategies right here. And we’ve the superb video group and the manufacturing group that may really add in issues that can assist you visualize what we spoke about prior to now. Thrilling. And I can present you some instruments too on our web site. Sure. In order we undergo… So this yr we’ve a really attention-grabbing and totally different format. Proper. So prior to now, I might choose a language and research. And final yr we… Discovered French collectively. A few of us achieved greater than others. Sure, a few of us. But when you do not know, Kyejin is likely one of the greatest Korean lecturers that we’ve. Thanks. And so this yr we’ve a really attention-grabbing format. Kyejin? Precisely. I will be your Korean instructor this yr and you will be studying Korean from me. Yeah. And you may observe alongside to provide you concepts on tips on how to research with our system and in addition tips on how to research with an precise instructor. So it is actually going to be fairly attention-grabbing. And we’ve some actually attention-grabbing issues to share with you for the primary month that we’ve finished this collectively. Yay! So in January you already began studying Korean with me, proper? That is appropriate. Is there something you wish to share with us? So essentially the most attention-grabbing factor about studying with Kyejin and the Korean Class 101 system is that for a few years we have been working in the direction of integration. And what we imply by integration is that the web content material matches with the textbook, matches with the assignments your instructor provides you matches the in-class program. So every thing you are doing, there’s continuity throughout each channel you are finding out. Proper. So that is what you probably did in January and that is what you’ll proceed to do that yr. That is appropriate. So Kyejin, do you wish to discuss how we acquired began and the way we’re finding out collectively or how would you want to begin? Effectively, as a scholar, how did you begin studying Korean with us, with me and Korean Class 101? Okay. So for everyone on the market, what we want to do is present you tips on how to get began after which when you get began, tips on how to progress. Easy methods to progress by yourself as a self-study scholar, then tips on how to research with distance studying with the instructor over communication, after which lastly tips on how to research with an in-person instructor. So the primary place we begin is with the evaluation. Oh, proper. So if you signed up for the personal life class, you bought the evaluation. Did you are taking the evaluation? I did. So that you log in and there is a check for a number of areas. So that you begin with what was first. What was first, so I can really see your end result right here. So let me see. Sure, at first it was vocabulary. Okay. And it appears such as you acquired one appropriate reply out of ten. Effectively, that is okay. That is okay. It is simply to see your degree, it is to not decide your Korean degree and blame you. It is simply to know. No, no, no. It is judging, yeah. It is simply to see your degree, to search out the very best class for you, greatest degree for you. And subsequent we’ve evaluation check for grammar. Subsequent is studying and listening and writing. And my scores are just about the identical, proper? A stable one throughout all of them. So the check is sort of straightforward to take and if you cannot get the reply, you simply skip forward and for me, since I did not know a lot Korean, I type of forgot it. The check went reasonably shortly. I believe possibly about 10 minutes or so to take the check, then the instructor will get notified. Sure. And I see your degree, your degree B, 1.1. So for everybody on the market, 1.1 is the bottom degree. However some folks say it is 1.0, decrease than, that is absolute newbie, so not fairly absolute newbie. No, no, no, as a result of a minimum of you would learn 100 Korean alphabet, proper? So it isn’t degree 1.0, however 1.1. So as soon as I acquired that, the instructor will get notified or it is despatched off to the instructor. When the instructor really checks, that is as much as the instructor, however normally inside about 24 hours. After which I used to be notified of my degree and I might get began. I might really begin by myself. Sure. And truly earlier than that, you additionally, effectively, really after that, you bought an electronic mail from our educational advisor, proper? Sure. So the tutorial advisor helps inspire you as a result of really in my case, the motivation is sort of the difficulty. I am very motivated by the deadlines. So typically although, the deadlines, I wait until the final minute. So this advisor helps me say, hey, here is tips on how to get began, here is tips on how to progress alongside. Sure. And earlier than our first personal class, did you get some supplies to review? I did. So I obtained a welcome pack and it is very good contained in the welcome pack. There’s some primary vocab, introduction to the alphabet. And truly in the event you undergo this content material, it is numerous content material. It could actually maintain you busy up till the primary class. And people are very primary however vital info. And after that, you additionally obtained our studying pathway. So the training pathway is the place you begin, it is your place to begin. And the training pathway was so intuitive. I principally began from the start and every thing was damaged into these small segments. So as soon as I took my check, I did not begin immediately, I wished to listen to from my instructor, waited, however then my advisor advised me the place to begin. I had the welcome pack, so I began to undergo the welcome pack. So that is how one can begin as a self-study scholar too, very related sample. You come on, you get the welcome pack, you are assigned a pathway and the pathway is a linear development. And contained in the pathway, there’s studying part, after which there’s evaluation part. So you’ll be able to’t simply verify that you simply did every thing as a result of there are checks. There are. And what? As a instructor, I can really see your progress right here too. So that is what we name gradebook. And I see, oh, Peter, you probably did a terrific job with this pathway, you accomplished. And I can see your check end result too, and superb job. So we’re skipping forwards and backwards a bit between the totally different ranges, somebody with or and not using a instructor. So with the self-study, you type of handle your self. That is additionally the coed can see the progress on their aspect too. To allow them to additionally see this from the coed perspective. So that you’re transferring alongside and also you’re progressing, and the colours will let you know in case your work on the degree is nice sufficient. So once more, it is very, very intuitive. Going by your self, you progress alongside. What’s so attention-grabbing right here is, as Kajean mentioned, that your instructor can see your progress. So the instructor can log in and verify their college students and say, oh, this scholar’s doing effectively. The scholar’s transferring quick. The scholar isn’t working. Sure, I can see the progress of every scholar. And earlier than the category, I be sure that to verify. However not on the day, earlier than the day, please, Peter. However sure, I can see the progress of every scholar so I can observe up with them. Yeah, Kyejin made a reference too. So I used to be proper earlier than my class, two hours earlier than my class, I did my pathway proper on the deadline. Sure, a couple of minutes earlier than the category, so really, I wasn’t seen that, however after all, I seen that after the category that, did you see my message? I gave you some suggestions like this. Yeah, I gave you some corrections. And I additionally despatched you some audio recordsdata of the phrases that you simply have been mispronounced, plus some practices. And deadline too. Yeah, so what Kajean is speaking about now could be there’s a chat between the coed and instructor. And so at first, we have been speaking concerning the premium degree, the place there’s an evaluation and other people can know the place to begin they usually go on their method. The premium plus degree, you really will talk with the instructor. And it is fairly good as a result of the instructor will reply in 24 hours, the instructor provides you totally different assignments and homework that you are able to do, and then you definately full the homework and ship again to your instructor. And that is fairly good in the event you’re not so busy and you will get some homework, you’ll be able to work on the location, do your homework or do the project after which ship it to your instructor. Then there is a stay class, which we’ll discuss in a second. So this chat right here, Kajean used to provide me some suggestions about my evaluation, speak just a little bit, as she mentioned, I might ship a voice recording, a self introduction, and my instructor corrected that for me and gave me the right pronunciation. So that is the following larger degree, this premium plus. However if you do the stay class, the good factor is your instructor is the particular person, the instructor chatting to premium plus instructor is your stay instructor. So there’s the total continuity that actually makes the system work. Sure. So effectively. Sure. Really, this was certainly one of my favourite function after I realized French final week, final yr on French half 101, as a result of I meet my instructor each week and I can also chat with my instructor like anytime, anyplace with my simply cell phone. When he will get me again, he answered me again simply in 24 hours. So we had numerous chat and it was very enjoyable. And I seen if I get near my instructor, I study higher. And I do know the identical factor. I had many Korean lecturers and if the scholars are very near me, they study sooner. So I hope we get shut and you’ll study extra. Yeah, that might be so good. However yeah, I am actually totally having fun with this. However let’s return and earlier than we bounce into the category and present you another issues, we wish to discuss this continuity and this built-in. So the textbook that you simply get, there’s the appear and feel and the characters within the textbook. Then if you go to the location, the textbook is you are studying the identical materials within the textbook that you simply’re studying within the pathway. For among the pathways, there’s this corresponding integration. So the grammar is identical, the vocab overlaps, and it actually helps that the instructor is aware of the fabric you are utilizing, the fabric has the identical appear and feel, after which the evaluation, the check you are taking are multi functional place. As a result of all through my many language journeys, I’ve studied at brick and mortar colleges, I’ve studied on-line, and every instructor likes a sure textbook. And every thing is fragmented. My outcomes on the faculty will not be with my tutor. My tutor is utilizing a textbook that I haven’t got entry to. So there are these disconnects normally if you’re attempting to progress. And right here it is built-in throughout the entire course of, whether or not you are finding out by your self, whether or not you are finding out with a distance instructor, distance studying, or whether or not you are doing this with a stay instructor, as in my case. Proper. So I actually just like the textbook, too. And by the best way, listeners, if you be part of our stay or group lessons, you’ll get the textbook of the language. And the textbook contents, as you mentioned, correspond to the video or audio classes that we’re seeing. Yeah. After which the instructor supplies. Let’s shift to the category now. The instructor supplies are literally the identical, too. So it is all built-in. The slides, proper. So possibly we might speak just a little bit concerning the slides. Certain. For the slides, first, we begin with some ice break. So we’ve a easy chat and still have an all the time dialogue. It consists of audio file. So it is a terrific listening apply for college kids, too. And we introduce the vocabulary and the sentence patterns. And we even have numerous practices, proper? A number of practices. Sure. So this slide is definitely designed for apply since you already realized the fundamental issues by way of your pathway. Yeah. So how was your apply expertise? Yeah. It was, effectively, there’s one subject we must always discuss immediately. When you will have a stay class, you are going to want about, if the category, in our case, the category is half-hour, you are going to want thrice the size of the category for preparation. So in my case, I wanted 1.5 hours. So the pathway took me about an hour, after which I spent one other half-hour by myself writing down phrases that I wished to make use of within the class. However this prep time is critical in the event you actually wish to maximize your time together with your instructor. Precisely. So as an alternative of studying or attempting to get some info from the category, you even have some data, and also you apply loads. And thru the apply, you really bear in mind and enhance your expertise. So I maintain going again to this integration. Why is that this integration vital? So for my second class, I used to be very late. I had not accomplished the second pathway portion, lesson two. So my instructor notified the success coach, the tutorial advisor. And I acquired an electronic mail saying, hey, your class is coming. Please full your work. So as a result of it is an built-in, and since the instructor and the educating advisor can see your progress, they know if you have not finished one thing. To allow them to notify you and remind you, hey, please prepare in your class. So you do not waste the cash not being ready. Precisely. And that is why you accomplished the pathway. I used to be stunned as a result of I understand how busy you’re. Yeah, if you wish to succeed. So yeah, I took two hours earlier than the category, and I confirmed up able to do the category very effectively. And Kyejin, how did I do? You probably did a terrific job. Did you see my suggestions, by the best way? Let’s take a fast look. What’s additionally good too is after the category inside about 24 hours, effectively, inside 24 hours, normally a lot sooner, I get the outcomes on how I did within the class. So let’s have a look at how I did on the category. Higher than the one. Sure. You probably did higher than the primary one. So have a look at the fluency and vocabulary, you bought the total marks. So we grade on 5 classes, fluency, vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and listening. So these are the marks, after which the instructor provides a write up of how the lesson went. Sure. And certainly one of my suggestions was, effectively, Peter ready the lesson very effectively, since you are very ready. Yeah, and that is the place that integration is available in, simply by merely going by way of the pathway, doing that, after which spending a while by myself, checking the location for vocab, after which I take advantage of Google Translate and put in some phrases that I wished to make use of. I prefer to study in a little bit of an attention-grabbing method. We might chat about that. I used to be ready for the lesson, and since the instructor slides, what the instructor is utilizing displays what you have realized outdoors of the classroom. It’s totally built-in, and it units you up for fulfillment. So simply introducing this, I left some suggestions for Peter, and right here I additionally put some pronunciation evaluation part, so he can enhance sure phrases to enhance his pronunciation. And I additionally added some grammars that we realized. The attention-grabbing grammar is the negation. It is a actually personalised lesson for Peter, as a result of I do know this attention-grabbing factor. At any time when I say one thing, Peter tried to show the sentence to the damaging kind, reminiscent of 안녕하세요, it means howdy, however in Korean, it actually means, are you in peace? However then Peter mentioned, 안녕하세요, 안녕하세요, it means I am not in peace, or, how are you? Are you doing effectively? I am not doing effectively. So effectively, I assumed Peter can be very desirous about negation, the damaging sentences in Korean. So really final week, no, this week, we realized concerning the Korean negation, proper? I used to be so completely satisfied to evaluation this, and I typically prefer to say these items, as a result of it type of naturally folks wish to know why you are not effectively. So in the event you’re effectively, okay, yeah, I am effectively, that is good. However in the event you’re not effectively, it is like, effectively, why? So I all the time need, every thing I say is calculated to invoke a solution or invoke a query like, why is it like that? Or how come you do not like this? And likewise, this grammar is ideal for Peter type of joke, proper? Peter typically make a joke utilizing the damaging kind. So I assumed this grammar can be good, and you probably did a terrific job. I really feel such as you noticed all the data shortly. Effectively, two issues. The instructor, effectively, Kyejin did a really, very superb job of utilizing the instructor scholar chat to get me ready for the lesson, issues out right here to try to maintain the dialog in Korean. And provides me a really detailed suggestions from the self introduction and materials, just like the content material that I created and despatched to her. Second, the pathway allowed me to progress so as in a short time, and canopy the fabric that I wanted to do the core a part of the lesson. So with out that route, the dialog would, the lesson would stall. However as a result of I ready and Kyejin noticed, might see that I confirmed up ready, the lesson I assumed went very, very effectively. Yeah, I agree. So I’ve a query then. It feels like you’re taking, so you are taking these stay personal lessons. However I do know a lot of our interior circle viewers and listeners will not be possibly taking these stay personal lessons. Then how can they study? Can they nonetheless study ultimately? Yeah, so let’s break this into these three elements, self-study, studying with a distance instructor, distance studying, after which the stay part, whether or not you are in a bunch class or a instructor. So if you’re doing the self-study, more often than not, effectively, I believe one of many keys is that you’ve got somebody to apply with. However let’s simply deal with the development half, that the pathway is specified by such a method you can progress in a linear vogue, testing your self. And simply by testing your self and ensuring you do these checks, it should allow you to a lot to precisely decide the place you’re. Are you actually getting the fabric or not? And so in the event you’re self-studying solely, then there are specific pathways, particularly these new can-do pathways, which I strongly advocate that you simply attempt in case your language has them. They’re carved out in such a method you can apply all the abilities you’ll want to study, listening, talking, writing, studying, vocab and grammar, and naturally, tradition. That is the primary one. Second one, when you’ve got this Premium Plus degree, make it possible for when you undergo your pathway, that you simply’re sending your instructor some sort of content material for them to verify and get again to you on. If in case you have any questions, be happy to ask your instructor. By the best way, the chat is known as My Trainer Messenger app. So there you’ll be able to entry to a instructor anytime you need. Anytime. The instructor will reply inside a 24-hour time. After which lastly, in the event you’re not finding out with our lecturers, be sure to’re practising someplace with somebody, whether or not it is somebody , you are exchanging, or you will have a instructor or tutor on a unique platform. However when you’ve got that, then simply apply the rule that in case your class is half-hour, spend an hour and a half, possibly an hour going by way of the content material on our website by way of the pathway, half-hour by yourself making ready, after which exhibiting up and actually getting essentially the most out of your class. The one factor that, in my expertise, working with a tutor that does not have, in the event you’re not working from the identical textbook, then yeah, possibly you are higher off sharing, ensuring that you simply’re utilizing the identical content material, ensuring that your instructor and also you’re utilizing that very same content material. Yeah. And likewise, I seen some folks, some lecturers do not wish to use sure supplies. They wish to use their very own supplies. In that case, then the supplies that you simply use at college and you utilize with the instructor are additionally totally different. That is what occurs in a instructor as a result of they know that materials they usually perceive tips on how to educate that materials they usually’re acquainted with it. And in order that’s why typically there is a little bit of a niche. And likewise, lastly, there’s typically no method for them to see in the event you’ve really finished the work. They may give you homework and also you do the homework, nevertheless it’s not like this method the place the instructor can peek and say, okay, effectively, he went by way of all of the modules. However I believe so long as you are talking, so long as you are studying, so long as you are working, you are going to continue to learn. If anybody is desirous about our stay personal lessons or group lessons, effectively, please be part of it. For the stay personal lessons, they will be part of anytime, however for group lessons, I believe the following semester begins in Could. So the group lessons have a semester, they’ve a beginning date and a end date. And also you research with as much as 4 folks, not more than 4, as a result of after 4, it is actually onerous to make progress. So we restrict at 4. Yeah. And I had, I taught a number of group lessons and typically they alternate their contact they usually apply Korean themselves. Wow. Yeah. So, effectively, in the event you be part of the group lessons, I believe that is additionally one of many benefits. You will have somebody to apply with on the weekend when you do not have class. Yeah. So I discover that we have been working onerous for a lot of, a few years to resolve this built-in method as a result of colleges are nice at educating. Textbook corporations are nice at making textbooks. On-line content material corporations are nice at making on-line content material. Video corporations are nice at making movies. However to have that continuity, that took a really, very very long time. And I used to be very, very completely satisfied to make use of this and research with you and the instructor high quality issues too. Certainly. Certainly. So, I am trying ahead to our subsequent month of research. Sure, me too. So let’s discuss targets for subsequent month. So in the event you’ve heard The Internal Circle earlier than, that is barely totally different. Earlier than I would deal with normally one space, normally talking, and lots of of my targets revolved round this. However now with this built-in method, I’ve to deal with all the abilities. Sure. Listening, studying, writing, talking, grammar, vocabulary. And that is why having the location, the textbook, all built-in actually helps. So I wish to maintain my course. I wish to preserve. Then I’ve an attention-grabbing objective. So we have had two lessons to date. Proper. And I might say that the category is about 50-50 or possibly 60% English, 40% Korean. What would you guess? 50-50? 60-40? Yeah. For 1.1 degree college students, I attempt to use like 50-50. It depends upon the scholars, however possibly I ought to use extra Korean to you. So yeah, I’ll attempt to get my ratio. I believe that is an excellent ratio too if you’re attempting to talk a language. I will attempt to get my ratio at 70-30 in favor of Korean. And I’ll attempt so as to end 1.1, what number of classes do I want to complete? Effectively, you will have eight classes left. So I’ll attempt to end by the top of February. These eight. Actually? Yeah. Okay. I am trying ahead to it. Which means are you going to maneuver ahead to degree 1.2A after this degree in March in the event you succeed, in the event you obtain your objective? Sure, I’ll work onerous in the direction of that. Okay. It is an thrilling objective. Okay. I am trying ahead to it. Ranges are one thing attention-grabbing too that you simply introduced up. This was one other factor that took us a very long time to reorganize. This was a number of work behind the scenes. However really having the degrees the place your roadmap is obvious, in the event you end this and go the check, you’ll be able to then transfer on to the following degree. Sure. So I believe why do not we simply type of recap right here. The very first thing is that this method, this built-in system could be very highly effective. Sure. At the moment, we’ve an built-in method for the content material. Let’s begin with the content material. Now we have built-in. It took us a very long time to redo the content material and combine the content material. So the appear and feel is identical for sure movies, textbook, after which these match with some further studying strategies that we now present, totally different companies. Proper. So we’ve self-study which is premium and primary. Then you’ll be able to transfer to the premium plus the place you will have a instructor obtainable and you may speak to the instructor, do assignments for the instructor, and the instructor will get again to you with suggestions inside 24 hours. And eventually, we’ve the stay lessons. And once more, with the stay lessons and this distance studying, the instructor has entry to see the coed’s progress. So not solely is there integration within the content material that the lecturers are sharing with the scholars, so everybody’s working in the direction of the identical factor, there’s additionally this continuity and integration of seeing how the progress goes. So in the event you do do a category, whether or not it is with us or outdoors, be sure that the rule is three to at least one. You spend, in case your class is an hour, it’s a must to spend three hours on the brink of be sure to get essentially the most out of it, half-hour at 1.5. So preserve this three to at least one rule and make it possible for your instructor, once more, we use a really attention-grabbing evaluation system, 5 classes plus detailed suggestions of progress. In case you’re finding out with a tutor or a instructor outdoors, be sure that the instructor is supplying you with that or be sure that your good friend provides you or the particular person you are finding out with, your alternate associate, provides you some sort of suggestions to assist assess in the event you’re progressing or not. Yeah. And that additionally inspire you to evaluate college students. Okay. Okay. Now we’ve the objective set. We did our recap and the primary video is completed. Oh, wow. So the deadline of your objective is the top of February, proper? Sure. Okay. I am trying ahead to it. So listeners, what about you? Tell us. Kyejin, you nearly made it. Sure. You switched again right here. Discuss to the listeners instantly and you will not want this. Sure. So tell us and electronic mail us at at and keep tuned for the following Internal Circle. And likewise please tell us the way you loved this video. Once more, we like this as a result of the video group can add extra issues inside this like what we confirmed you and what we’ll do is type of undergo among the instruments and type of present you the way I’m studying and the way my instructor is making ready and on the brink of assist the coed. Okay. So thanks very a lot and we’ll see you subsequent time.
