Test Your Korean – Level 1 Dialog in 100% Korean


Check how much you can understand from studying with Level 1 lessons of TalkToMeInKorean! To make the conversation more realistic, we have added some new words and expressions that did not get covered in Level 1 yet, but don’t worry; you have the PDF to use for reference!

First listen to the dialog alone without looking at the Korean transcript or translation, and then compare your understanding with the actual translation.

Let us know how much you understood!

    ugh… i hardly understood anything the first time, spoken korean sounds fast and pronunciations are difficult to grasp like ㅁ, it sounds like ‘m’ but there are times it is pronounced as ‘b’.

    maybe saying the theme of the dialogue would help a little but other than that it is very helpful and learn from my mistakes.

    as well as just listening, i got a notepad and wrote down what i heard, then translated it into english after every line. i recommend you all do this too! i think with that added element i got more out of it, this was really helpful!!

    Ok, I understood it the second time, but I don’t get the hesitation (?) when they discuss about going for pizza. And also, what is so weird with beer to pizza? Beer is the perfect pizza drink, if you are of beer drinking age. Is it considered weird in Korea or are they just teasing? I don’t feel that my korean are anywhere near the level that I can grasp irony.

    Wow I actually managed to understand the majority of this conversation. That shows me that I am making progress

    so fast TT. When I listened the first time I got the situation but only about 50% of actual dialogue… then when I went through it with pen and paper and a lot of pause I realized I actually knew a good 90% of it but my brain wasn’t following it fast enough lol. And after reading the transcript I realized that what I struggled with was vocabulary I really didn’t know and my hearing is quite good :P.

    Thank you guys so much for the opportunity! I’m really glad I found this site, even though I’m learning from many sources the exercises from TTMIK are my favorites to measure my progress. Very well developed.

    Great! I managed to understand most of this listening exercise! TTMIK is really good choice in learning Hangug-eo. Kamsahamnida, Hyun-woo oppa and Kyeong-eun eonnie. I think I am now ready to face Level 2. ^_^

    • you got the oppa and eonnie reversed.
