 We started this lesson with some speaking practice where i tried to be a bit more descriptive using last lesson's vocabulary. the grammar for this lesson was difficult to grasp due to subtle differences but by focusing on it in the lesson I know i need to concentrate on getting it secure in my brain more. Thanks for the lesson teacher :)

 Petriel is always so patient and kind. She is really helping me with my confidence when it comes to both speaking and listening. She teaches the history of the original Chinese characters so that my vocabulary can increase pretty quickly. For example, knowing the root of a word can help me guess or understand a lot more words. We've decided to increase the amount of lessons per week to increase my overall output and input! She is a great teacher!

 This lesson was for describing how to change one's mood ie actions to make one feel differently. There was lots of new vocabulary which is fun to learn but i have to take my time and learn it properly. The listening sections were fun and the grammar which links to go and doing something will be really useful i bet!

 Petriel taught me about how to describe one's mood and new grammar to describe when something happens. These will be super useful for future lessons i feel! Thanks again!

 I really enjoyed my lesson today! I can finally start to feel that my knowledge is coming together and I can see some improvement. It's really exciting! We were able to have some conversation using the new vocabulary and grammar. Her lessons are always fun and she is always so helpful with every question!

 Today Petriel helped me to talk about asking for things. Since this is really important grammar for anyone who wants to speak a language we did a lot of speaking practice. We also did some good listening practice and I was proud that I could understand and translate what I heard.

About me - English

안녕하세요 여러분! Hello everyone!

I am Petriel, NATIVE KOREAN TEACHER, who was born and raised in Seoul. You can always call me 엘라쌤(Ella-sam). Ella is my nickname and sam is a short word meaning teacher(선생님/sunsangni:m/) in verbal Korean .

Currently, I am in Brandon, MB, Canada. I came here April 2019 for a new life. I have studied in Sweden for a master programme in sustainable energy engineering and lived for 2.5 years.

You will be able to do these with me:

Free conversation

High quality writing or just simple one-liner diary

Traveling without any translator

Watch or Listen K-pop or K-dram without subtitles

Take an examination for the proof of your Korean ability

Have one more best friend in your life - best ever!

Qualifications & Experience

Native Korean

2012-2015 Tutor for high school students - Korean/Mathematics/Counselling

2012-2015 Tutor for a cover letter - university entrance/employment

2016-2018 Korean instructor for 8-11 years old students in 한글 학교(Hangeul School), Stockholm, Sweden

In short, I have experiences with Koreans as well as foreigners. From beginners to advanced level, nothing is impossible with me.

These are just official experiences, but I have taught Korean to many people from different backgrounds. Unofficially, I have experiences with some people who love 한류(Hallyu) - K-pop, K-drama or had a plan for an exchange programme in Korea, and, yes, they always become good friends at the end!

Teaching Approach

First of all, there will be a few questions before our first class. This helps me prepare for a personalised class.

Learning methods:

Short clips from movies, animations, news, etc.

Government proved school materials, regardless of subjects - this can be a good option when you may go back to schools in Korea later.

K-pops - old/new


Previous exams - TOPIK, 수능(Korean university entrance test), etc.

It all depends on you - what you want or how you want. Because I believe a personalised class is the best point of 1:1.
