What our students have to say…

We had a couple of students who finished their Intensive Korean courses with us last week, and whilst we are sad to bid them goodbye, we are very glad to have received great feedback from them. Here’s what they have to say:


“The teachers are the best part of this experience. They engage the class using various methods to make sure the students understand. They always explain things thoroughly and were very patient with the students. They are fun, yet keep learning a priority. It was also fun to meet students from all around the world with the same goal – learning the Korean language. I wish I could stay much longer but I hope to come back and study for a much longer next time.” – Dana Particka



“The first day I came to Lexis Korea, the people were helpful, welcoming and lovely. In class, the teachers are all friendly and it’s very nice when the teachers give students their Kakaotalk ID because I feel like I could ask her for help anytime and anywhere I go. Also, I feel our relationship is closer and more connected. I love Seoul and Lexis Korea very much. Thank you so much for giving me such good experiences and fun time in Korea.” – Emma



“I really enjoyed everything about Lexis Korea. The school is organised and the school staff is professional. I liked my teachers a lot, so I have many positives to say. I will however sum it up in two words: patient and professional. The curriculum was presented in an easy and understandable way (by topic) and I really enjoyed my lessons. I hope to come back soon.” – Krystel Hillbish

Thank you very much our lovely students for the kind words about the school, our teachers and staff members. The pleasure is ours; we are very pleased to know that you’ve all had a good time whilst studying here at Lexis Korea. We hope to see you again in the near future! 🙂

Korean Slang: 헛물켜다


The phrase 헛물켜다 literally translates to “meaninglessly drinking a huge amount of water”, however as it is a slang, there’s always a figurative meaning to it.

This phrase is used mainly when someone makes a pointless amount of effort trying to achieve something that is impossible or unpractical.

For example, if you see someone effortlessly trying to be a K-pop idol when they are not talented enough, you may say 헛물겨다. In English, it is similar to the saying that goes “quit chasing rainbows”.
