One session is ten weeks, and there are 4 sessions per year. If a student who speaks absolutely no Korean begins at Level 1, as there are a total of 6 levels, it will take approximately a year and a half to complete the course. Every level has a final exam, and students who need more time to study may have to repeat a level before they can advance to the next one. In addition, if you choose to take the special advanced course (Level 7), it will take 1 year and 9 months to complete all of the classes. However, if a student has studied Korean before and takes the interview test, it is possible to begin classes at the intermediate level and complete the full course more quickly. If a student completes Level 3, they are eligible to enter university. Normally, if students complete Level 6, they are able to communicate fluently with Koreans and study at a Korean university.
