Meet 윤쌤!

Being a Korean language teacher in Malaysia for close to 10 years, Yoon Jung Hyun (Yoon Ssam) is a strong advocate of active and purposeful learning, as reflected in his way of teaching Korean.

“Learning is not a spectator’s sport.” He is best known for encouraging participation in classes as well as bringing learning out from the classroom, in this case, making learning accessible from everywhere.

As principal of Penang Korean Class, it is also through his teaching experience that he sees gap in today’s language learning world which is worth bridging through the founding of uBitto.
