KREN 1001
Elementary Korean I
5*****
Pros: If you don't miss a single day of class, he guarantees you an A. He just wants you to learn the dang language, no matter how badly you do on the exams.

BEST Korean teacher.

Easy A.

Lets you leave early if you finished the exam or if you don't need to review for the exams (on review day only).

Extremely easy alphabet system (it was scientifically designed by a Korean Emperor and numerous scholars in the 1400s, so it's one, if not the, easiest to learn in the world. A friend of mine learned how to read and write Korean in one week. He didn't even study. Same story with most other people.
Cons: If you're Korean, he'll pressure you like no other to switch into level 2 Korean. My God the pressure was enormous. Remember that they can't actually force you into level 2, but I personally recommend you doing it unless you really have no confidence in Korean.

If you're not Korean, watch out for the vocabulary sections of exams and the vocab quizzes. He wants you to translate backwards from English into Korean once in a while for certain words. Study the vocabs both ways. He does not make you translate passages though.
His accent is detectable, but in no way problematic. He's very proficient in English despite the fact that he immigrated from Korea as an adult.

KREN 2002
INTERM KOREAN II
3***
This is for KREN 2001, which he hasn't taught in previous years - I took the heritage class because the only non-heritage class was at an inconvenient time for me. I'm a Korean-American who has a moderate level of understanding, speaking, and writing Korean. This class isn't super hard - however, there is A LOT of work. We have a vocabulary quiz literally every week (sometimes twice in a week!), homework every now and then, a group project with every section we learn, and finals is hell in this class. He assigns us an individual project, which has to be 5 minutes of speaking Korean as well as a written report, a book report (~6 pages) in which it's mandatory to have 40 sentences in Korean, and a cumulative exam. I've learned a lot in this class but it's way more work than I expected!
