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!

You can view the PDF here or download it here.

    • Hoang tran bao

      its ok.i’ve been learning both english and korean,hope you could help me to get my degree better 😀

  • Leanne Grose

    I am really proud of myself. I understood about 90% of the dialogue. I lost it towards the end when they were talking about Beer and it being strange to eat with pizza but otherwise I am very happy with my progress. Thank you TTMIK!

  • Kaven Chanthaphy

    My listening comprehension isn’t as quick as the dialogue however, I listened to it over and over without the PDF and understood most of it!

  • migraine

    You know you watched too many K-Dramas when you could’ve understood this whole conversation without actually passing by the Level 1 Lessons lmao. Really nice ^^
    감사합니다 (this was hell to type from a computer keyboard)

  • veronika

    why I can’t download this PDF ? when I want to download this .. must be sign up first

    • Randolph Diawa

      click the “download it here” and it will open a new tab, there you can download without the need for registration

  • Gareth Del Rey Vanstone

    Listening is NOT my high point. I could understand a lot of the first parts of the sentences and short sentences, but a lot of the middle and endings were just a blur of sounds :-/ T.T

  • Diana Arous

    wow i barely understood anything without the transcript, i think i can’t distinguish the words and verbs by ear very quickly, i hope am not the only one

    • Mari

      You’re not the only one. I understood all the transcript but had a hard time with the audio

  • Sarah T

    i think that i understood most of it (75%), it was just the vocab words that got me confused and sometimes they spoke a little too fast for my brain to process.

  • Wow I understand maybe 95% of this dialogue because of drama that I watched 🙂 I fee like this course is really helpful because although I knew what mean almost all lessons I didn’t know when to use such expressions 🙂 Dialogue itself isn’t that hard or maybe I’m saying that because I watched too many shows and I can actually understand more that I would think I understand. 감사합니다 TTMIK 🙂 !

  • Yusra

    Wow! I actually understood about.. uhm.. I would say 85% of the dialogue.

  • Amy Nadnapa

    woahhh i actually understood the vast majority of this, it was just the nouns every now and then that i was unsure of. thank you for all the wonderful lessons so far that have made me be able to understand this, i look forward to learning more! 감사함나다~

  • Crazy Mushroom Lady

    wow, I understood most of it. thank you soooooo much. on to level 2 LOL

  • Charlottie Hill

    I wasn’t expecting to get any of it but there were only a few nouns and phrases I hadn’t learnt yet!! Thank you TTMIK 🙂
    Also, now I want to eat pizza

  • Nsizwe Stewart

    I listened to the Level 1 test for the first time and I think I got intimidated so the words seemed unbeknownst to me. However on the second and third listen the words became clear and I understood for the most part with the exception of a few words and phrases of which I figured out using context clues. The PDF file served as great practice for my reading 한글 skills. TTMIK 팀 감사합니다 !!!!!! I’ll be on my way to understanding, speaking, reading and writing 한국어 in no time.

  • Eda Nur Albayrak

    I’m relieved that my result is good. I owe my success at this listening test to K-Dramas. I know it because my listening skills aren’t good when it comes to English or German although I took so many lessons last year.

  • Fernanda H

    Wow, I’ve watched so many k-dramas in my life that I was able to understand it all. Yesterday I started learning the alphabet and watching some videos, but that’s all I’ve ever tryed to learn about Korean. Listening is easy, but talk….it’s so difficult the pronunciation.

  • Hind Ashraf

    I’m so happy I understood it all ^_^ Thank you Talk to me in Korean and thanks kdrama

  • Hugo Lau

    It is very helpful, thanks.

  • Vanessa Vegan

    The first time I listened I caught about 50-60% of it but after listening to it 2 more times I was able to get 95% of the conversation. I now know that I need to work on my listening skills. On to Level 2!

  • Diana Arous

    I’m not going to the 2nd level till i’m able to speak every sentence in this dialogue, I got a good tip (from TTMIK) about mimicking Koreans into making myself sound like them without having such a heavy foreign accent

  • Abhilasha Mehra

    I am happy that I understood almost completely!! TTMIK 감사합니다 ^^ 사랑해요 ❤

  • SpaceBanana

    That moment where everyone says they understand everything and you didn’t…

    • ratu

      me too lol i dont know what’s wrong with me..

    • Jessie James

      나두 T.T

  • Taehyung’s cute smile

    oh god i can’t believe i understood almost all of it just by listening once

  • Alicia Gogue

    어떻게 든 나는 대화를 이해할 수 있지만 발음 문제 만 있습니다.
    Somehow I can understand the conversation but I only have pronunciation problems

  • Alicia Gogue

    나는 한국어로 글을 쓸 수 있지만 발음과 말하기가 가장 약합니다.
    I can write and listen in korean but my pronunciation and speaking is the weakest.

  • Chloé Gendre

    It’s so helpful! Thank you!
    But I might have seen a mistake in the PDF. I’m not sure but on the one I’ve download (which means it was on the link “download it here”) it’s written “How drinks beer in a pizza place?” instead of “who drinks beer in a pizza place?”. However, there is no mistake on the link “view the PDF”.
    Thanks again for the great lessons! They are amazing!

  • 정미송

    what is the difference betwen 마시고 and 마셔요? thank you^______^

  • (fre)ely

    다 이했으니까 너무 기뻐요! ^^

  • Elizabeth Stephanie

    i can understand all of the dialogue. thankyou for the lessons TTMIK!

    • Elizabete Zirne

      How?!?! Only learning from these lessons?

    • Giang Thỏ

      Me too. May be I’ve watched a lot of K-drama and K-show then I get used to their accents, lolz

  • Ikhsannul Hijri

    Thank you TTMIK!
    Btw what did Kyeongeun always say? ‘Ne, watch out’ i know ne mean is yes. But what is ‘watch out’ mean in korean. I have no idea

  • Zozo Chan

    I understood almost everything
    thank you TTMIK team

    • Elizabete Zirne

      How are you so good at it? Were you learning a lot more than these lessons? Because i can’t understand very much. I’m sad because some people has better memory that i do 🙁

    • Chris Chris

      Hmmm Well I think there are some words that we never really went over in the lessons, so that could be a problem for you. Go through and memorize the words at the bottom of the PDF and come back and listen again. maybe that will help!

  • 안나

    I understand everything as text, but can hardly catch the words from the dialogue 🙁 Any tip?

    • 시에나

      This use to happen a lot to me when studying Japanese at school, its always a little hard listening to dialogues at first so don’t worry if you cant understand some of it. Keep practicing and your ears will soon adjust to hearing and picking up on Korean words. Sometimes if you listen to the dialogue a few times, each time you understand it a little bit more words so try as much as you can without the PDF!

    • 안나

      Thank you for encouraging! Were you then able to understand Japanese?

    • 시에나

      Yes it definitely gets a lot easier to understand the more you listen! I found sometimes when i listened once i hardly understood a single word but by the 3rd listen i could understand pretty well! Don’t give up you can do it! 😀

  • 지연

    Ahh, I’m so happy I was able to understand 90% of the conversation! Watching K-dramas definitely helped. I’m going to try and recite the conversation by myself, until I sound mostly fluent, before going on to the 2nd level!

  • Giang Thỏ

    I’m happy that i can study from lesson 1 to end of this level. Even though i have not spoken every word correctly, I think I could continue my studying with ttmik. Thank you for making Hangul easier to learn.
