Learn Korean language on italki

This is another option to improve your level for serious Korean learners out there.
Recently, I was torn between taking an online class and normal class at ICLS, Bukit Bintang but due to time constraint, in the end I opted for Italki. There’s not much difference in the class rate per hour but I couldn’t afford to drive all the way downtown and going through that horrible rush hour at the golden bermuda area.
  • You have to have a credit card or Paypal account to pay for the lessons
  • You can choose various teachers and different rates are offered
  • Schedule is determined by the teachers
  • Teachers will get the payment only after you have completed the session
  • You need to have Skype or MSN account to contact the teachers.
  • Study at the comfort of your own house/room

How much you need to pay for Italki ?
The teacher will charge per session or class by ITC (Italki credits) – for example if a teacher charges 60 ITC per hour, it is equivalent to about RM19. However the teacher would normally request a student to confirm a 10 hour class/session per registration. So, you may need to purchase 600 ITC for 10 hour class/session in this case either with your credit card or Paypal. Don’t worry, payment will be only transferred to the teacher’s account only after a session completes.


  • ICLS stands for Inter Culture Language School
  • It has three branches – Subang Jaya, Damansara and Bukit Bintang. I studied my beginner class in Japanese in Bukit Bintang, Fahrenheit building (Old KL Plaza).
  • Classes are on weekdays (2 times per week – 7.00pm-8.30pm) or Saturdays (2.00pm – 4.00pm)
  • If you want to start other than beginner level, you need to sit for placement test. The teacher will determine your level based on the test’s result
  • One level is about 1 month and a half to complete

How much you need to pay for ICLS ?
Tuition fee – RM380
Book – RM25
Registration fee – RM30
Total -RM435 / 18 hours ~ RM24/hour
