    Wowww, new lesson today, great! I mean, I’m still at level 2 but in a month (or 2) I might enjoy level 9 if I keep studying hard. I have an important question: Do you guys have any audio material after “level 4” that summarise the lesson in a brief manner as the audio MP3 of the textbooks from level 1 to 4 (level 4 also has the CD, right?) or at least the workbooks from level 1 to 3? For me (and for many I guess) the ONLY way to truly make progress is to listen again (and read) every day the lesson I already finished. But if you don’t have anything yet I will just ask a Korean friend to recite it while I record it. Thanks guys, I’m half way through level 2 now. See you soon everybody! ,Leon 레옹

  • And by the way, I have started writing recently this blog about languages if anyone is interested to check it out: ,cheers

    Good lesson! First lesson in a looooong while. I hope we wont have to wait 6 months for the next lesson. xD

    Maybe next lesson you could talk about the difference between 면 and 때 when saying “when”?

    이번 레슨을 많이 어려울까봐 걱정 했는데 아주 많이 쉬어워서 마음이 놓여요… 그리고 문장을 다 아시니까 더 대행이에요 특이 “킨일이네!!” 드라마에서 많이 들어서 그래요.. 항상 이렇게 말해요:”사장님 킨일이네요!! 어떡해요?!!!”

    great work BUT i think at level 9 you should use VERY little english. i think it should be 90-95% korean. it impedes my learning for my brain to go back and forth between the languages. please consider doing lessons without so much english. for this reason i mostly listen to iyagi, but i’ve listened to all of them soooo many times…. or maybe start a level 10 that is 100% (or almost) korean?

    1) If you have good connections, then work will get done easily
    – 발이 넓으면 일을 빨리 끝날 거예요

    2) When I was lost, my friend came hurriedly looking for me.
    – 제가 잃어버릴 때 제 친구가 발 벗고 나샀어요

    3) Don’t interfere in other people’s business.
    – 다른 사람들이 일에 발을 담그지 마세요

    4) Yesterday, the park was very crowded.
    – 어제 공원에서 발이 디딜 틈도 없었어요

    5) I fell a step behind Minah
    – 제가 민앟 씨보다 한 발 늦었어요

    6) If you don’t act quickly, there will be a big problem.
    – 당신 지금 발 빠르게 움직이지 않으면 큰 일일 거예요

    7) As mom is at home, we cannot go anywhere(our legs are tied up)
    – 엄마가 집에 있어서 발이 묶였어요

    8) The work you did is very little (a drop in a bucket)
    – 당신이 한 일이 새 발의 피예요

    9) I stopped visiting my friend’s house a long ago.
    – 오래전에 친구 집에 발을 끊았어요

    10) Rather than sitting at office, going outside and working will be good.
    – 사무실에서 앉으고 있는 보다 발로 뛰면 좋을 게요

    If there are any mistakes in the sentences I wrote, please correct me.감사합니다!!
