KOREAN GYM: Get trained in the Korean Language

Learn Korean in a fun and Easy way!

We call this language class The Korean Gym, because it’s more about training Korean than studying Korean. The teachers are more like Personal Trainers than lecturers. All you have to do is show up, read the opening paragraph of the lesson, and then follow the teacher who will take you through guided quizzing and drills. Your job is also to ask questions and be a pro-active Korean learner! Following the Korean Gym, we offer a language exchange where 30 – 100 people (depending on the day of the week) will socialize over drinks in Korean and English. This language exchange is included in the Korean gym price.  Check out the video below to see what the full experience looks like.

Is the Korean Gym right for me?

This speaking-focused class is designed for us who struggle with self-study and want to get out, and speak Korean. We know exactly what you need and who you are!

What do I need?


Learning has to be fun. Plain and simple. If we’re learning alone, it can get dull really fast. This Korean Gym is face to face with other people from around the world, and that makes things very interesting.


As a self-study learner, it can be really hard to stay motivated. Ever open your textbook only to find your self browsing Facebook moments later? That will never happen here. Our Korean Trainers will give you the kick in your butt and the praise you need to reach your goals!


We know how confusing things can get when studying alone. There can be so many holes in our Korean. You might know a few really difficult words and then be clueless about some basic grammar. We have 9 textbooks that grow on one another to patch up the holes in your Korean game!

Who am I?

If you’re positive and open minded you’ll definitely like these lessons. Having said that, here are some common types that will really like our Korean Gym:

English Teachers

English teachers can live in Seoul for a very long time without learning too much Korean. We get it. How can you learn Korean when you’re expected to speak English all day long? We’ve got you. If you want to step up your Korean skills, the Korean Gym is designed for you.

International Students

Wether you’re in Korean University for Korean or not, this program will work for you. A lot of times, the curriculum asks you to plow through so much Korean you hardly get a chance to speak out! Well you’ll get plenty practice in the Korean gym. If you wish, you can bring your own textbooks and we’ll use our teaching methods to train you on them. 

Company Workers

For all you company workers here in Seoul, you’ll find our Korean Gym useful because it is damn efficient. Just like a real Gym, our trainers will have you do reps and sets that are aimed at getting results so you can spend more time doing things you want to do!


We use the Talk To Me In Korean Textbook series. Our lessons cover the topics below. Scroll down to see the textbooks. You can learn more about the textbooks at talktomeinkorean.com

What is the method?

We want to train you to speak Korean. All of our GSM Trainers know this and have been certified by us.  Every lesson objective, trainer and student is different, so every class will look different but we always follow the same two principles. We want to push and quiz you. 


The first thing our Trainers are trained to do is push you further than you’ve gone before! They will guide you through the material and keep you focused and on track. They will push the pace and get more memory reps out of you than you thought possible. They will push you to learn Korean!


The second main thing our Trainers are trained to do is to quiz you. And quiz you. And quiz you. It’s proven that simply reading something doesn’t compare with being quizzed on it. Reach into your memory and pull out that phrase with everything you’ve got! Then you’ll never forget it. We’ll you with that. 

Are you ready to get moving?
