The Kosnet review was originally published in Dulaboo.com. I used to write for the said website before my contract expired. Republishing here for archiving purposes. Edited to suit Yoast’s requirements.
You realize how serious South Korea is in inviting tourists and investors alike once they start supporting certain Korean language tutorials online. Kosnet is one of them (more on that later).
I tried to access the language services offered here at Kosnet in an effort to scan the tutorial methods they apply here. But for any button I try to click to view their syllabus apart from what is displayed, I get the login pop up page.
For the life of me, I could not get past most of these links although something tells me that one of these buttons might at least give us a sliver of idea of their tutorial program on a comprehensive level.
Still to no avail, in other words, the review you are reading now will depend on the very little information that Kosnet is willing to release online to non-members. This is obviously a tactic to encourage membership sign ups.
When I clicked “Sign up”, it redirected me to a university page that is directly connected with the government of South Korea. It doesn’t say if a premium version of this language tutorial program is included.
I scoured the page for PayPal or credit card buttons. There were none. But it asked me to enter my details. At the moment, I didn’t enter it for the meantime and went back to scanning Kosnet.
Although the page is available in other languages too like Chinese, Japanese and Spanish, most if not all of their overseas Korean institutions are located in Japan. The names of the institution are written in Korean characters with the translation available only if you have successfully logged into the website.
As for those who would like to go to South Korea themselves, language courses are also available on Kosnet.Go.Kr. Price quotations are written in South Korean won. The duration of the learning program is also mentioned.
Some schools specified how many hours would the program go in a week. One of the schools listed here is one I have written about in a previous blog entry: Sogang. They provided their contact details and website here too for everyone to check into.
Kosnet has several eBooks available in their database classified into levels for overseas students and for language proficiency. Various topics are discussed in them depending on the subject requirements that the student faced at the time.
They also have some books for children knowing that students come from all ages wanting to learn Korean too. Each demographic has its reasons for trying to learn the language so Kosnet did what it can to cater to most of them.
If you click the link in the Tumblr page referenced here, you’d be directed to a Tumblr error message. Meanwhile I found this page based on one of the screenshots I saved from the original article.
