Overview

The experience of being a student on Michel Thomas Korean was far beyond what I expected. The teachers are exceptional and the course very well-structured. I'd recommend the course to anyone who's looking for a solid start in the Korean language. - Olly Richards, iwillteachyoualanguage.com 'The thrill is that you're actually figuring it out on your own. You're engaging with another language, not just parroting it... It's an excellent way to start, and leaves the listener thinking, Hey, Ich kann do dis.' - New Yorker, David Sedaris, humorist and author, on learning German with the Michel Thomas Method Looking for a convenient language course that fits your lifestyle and gets you speaking a new language in a matter of weeks, not years? The original no-books, no-homework, no-memorizing method is in tune with the way the brain prefers to receive, store and retrieve information.

This unique method draws on the principles of instructional psychology and works with the way your brain prefers to receive, store and retrieve information. Knowledge is structured and organized so that you absorb the language easily and don't forget it. The method is designed to eliminate the stress which prevents you from relaxing and allowing the brain to work in the way which accepts learning in a seemingly painless, very exciting and highly motivating way. HOW DO THE COURSES WORK? 'All stress inhibits true and effective learning' - Michel Thomas During the course, you will join Michel Thomas Method teachers Jieun Kiaer and Derek Driggs and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course.

A great way to learn; it's fast and it lasts . - The Daily Telegraph Five minutes into the first CD, you already feel like you're winning. - Time Out Michel Thomas is a precious find indeed. - The Guardian Thomas makes it simple - Sunday Times Michel's methods will teach you effectively and easily - Daily Star Hugely inspiring - Red Ideal for any business traveller who needs to be able to get around confidently. - Sunday Business Moving along at a relaxed, slow pace, punctuated by amusing anecdotes and jokes from the teacher, the new words, phrases and language rules are gently introduced and reinforced through subtle repetition without ever being tedious. In fact, despite a distinct emphasis on non-work, the course proves very effective and enjoyable, and its format is ideal for learning anywhere you like. So, if you only want to learn to speak the language, this course is highly recommended. - Top Real Travel Product, Real Travel

At the end of the war he joined the US liberation army and later settled in the US where he established his world-famous language school.
