There's always Learn and teach the Korean language. • r/Korean
I've read that while Rosetta Stone is great for teaching Western-Western languages (i.e. to teach an English speaker French, Spanish, or German) it doesn't work well for Korean. What's the best way for someone to learn Korean?
Personally I found Rosetta Stone fairly useless for Korean. The grammar and structure is too different for learning easily from pictures (as an adult). I also tried Linguaphone many many years ago.
In terms of online things, I'd say maybe TalkToMeInKorean's YouTube series, books and MP3s.
I've been learning for about 3 years with tutors on iTalki.com and can't recommend them enough. You get private 1-1 video lessons over Skype with native speakers (either qualified teachers, or community teachers depending on how much you want to pay). I have nothing to do with their company, just a happy customer.
