Comment: Kim Minsook SSN was in charge of K1A, but this rating is for Chang SSN and Kim Youme SSN. Chang SSN was great! I can see why there are so many positive comments about her. She really cares about each and every student and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is doing well. Kim SSN was also great! This was her first semester teaching at UCB, so it is clear that all of her PPT lectures were created new (and as an instructor myself, I know how long it takes to prepare PPT lectures). Kim SSN is very supportive and encourages everyone to do their best. As a team, Chang SSN and Kim SSN did a great job in my opinion because their teaching styles and personalities were kind of different, so you get to learn from multiple approaches. The class was not hard at all as long as you put in the effort, and it was actually quite fun. I'm looking forward to K1B in the spring for sure!

Comment: Professor Kim spends lots of time letting students practice by themselves/in groups. Sometimes we had finished the tasks for a long time and were just wasting time. She also makes fun of students who make language mistakes in a way that I find weird. I highly recommend taking K1A with Professor Chang. She's one of the best instructors I've encountered on campus. And definitely engaged me in class. With her it's almost guaranteed that you will learn a lot.

Comment: Very cute instructor! Helps a lot when during mini skit practice, and usually has a lot of interesting ideas. It's usually joyful to have her classes, though her first sight may be a little serious.

Comment: Great teacher. Made jokes to keep class interesting. Does a good job explaining Korean to total beginners. Talks a little fast though on exams!

Comment: Kim SSN really likes playfully teasing students and engaging students to participate in class by playing "games" that make you speak grammar patterns you're learning at the time. She definitely creates a fun and comfortable atmosphere in the classroom, but her teaching of Korean markers or small things sometimes conflicts with Chang SSN's. Hopefully they can work things out better because it makes the class only slightly more confusing for us non-natives. However, the tests are still easy enough without having to study, and there is a bit of busy work (but it doesn't take up that much time). Overall, this class is highly recommended for fun/interest or for a GPA booster!

Comment: Overall Professor Kim is a great instructor. However, she really likes assigning different types of individual projects and skits which makes the class a bit time intensive. She's extremely helpful and engaging during class which makes this class a great one to take. In terms of Professor Kim, I'd be prepared to participate during class because she will pick on you!

Comment: She can be intense sometimes, but she's really easy to get along with. She WILL pick on you though, so be ready to participate. Otherwise, exams, weekly vocab quizzes, homework, etc. are very fair.

Comment: This rating is for Chang SSN and Lee SSN. Chang SSN was phenomenal as always; very supportive, super enthusiastic, and bent over backwards to help students inside the classroom and out. However, I can't say the same for Lee SSN. Although Lee SSN seemed nice at first, there's also a somewhat hostile atmosphere with her because it feels like she didn't really like us or know what was going on.

Comment: Great teacher. She speaks really fast and expects you to pick things up quickly, but is very helpful and thorough in teaching. Exams are slightly difficult and she can grade hard, but she pushes you to achieve fluency in understanding and speaking. Great teacher, fun class!

Comment: One of the best teachers at Cal and in the Korean department. Super friendly and helpful, she does demand a lot from the class, but she makes it fun and is pretty lenient on grading. Go to OH and she'll correct your homework for you. Really easy to get an A in all sections of the class. Vocab tests every week and tests every 3 lessons or so. Take it with Kim SSN if you can!

Comment: Kim SSN is one of the best teachers in the Korean department. A great teacher who cares about her students and assigns entertaining and fun assignments. Only drawback is the non-hertiage exams can be a bit difficult without a lot of preparation.
