Iyagi #130 / 엄마의 잔소리 / Mom’s nagging / Natural talk in 100% Korean
  • Hi TTMIK,

    I have listened to many of your lessons and I would like to try the Iyagi series. I was wondering if they increase in difficulty? In other words, should I start from the first one, or just choose a topic I like?

    Thanks 🙂

      I found it better to train your ear for natural speed. Either way if it is spoken slow or fast, if you are a beginner your brain isn’t going to process the info fast enough. That’s just my opinion. Study hard!!

      I’ve been studying 1 Iyagi lesson per day. I’m on lesson 60 now. I don’t notice any difference in difficulty. They seem easier as you do more, of course, but #58 isn’t that different from #10 in my opinion.

      Don’t worry about understanding every episode 100%. I still don’t understand 100%. The important thing is to learn the main vocabulary, and then move on to the next lesson. I guarantee that if you do that for a month, you will start to see a big improvement.

  • Hi Peter :))

    From my personal experience (I’m on Level 7 at the moment) and I find the Iyagi a little hard either way so to me if you start at one or if you start at 100 they are almost the same in terms of difficulty although maybe its just me but I found that the Iyagi in the first ones was spoken a little slower!!

      wow level 7!! how long have you been using this site for? I just started using this site in January. Even though I am only on level 3, I feel i am extremely advanced mainly because i get to practice with Korean students at my university.. do you practice conversation with native speakers too?


    몽골 부모님들이 자식들한테 잔소리를 거의 할때 “늦게 가지 파티를 다니지 마라” 라고 하시죠. 아프리카는 잔소리를 도 하겠죠. ㅋㅋㅋ 한국에서는 어머님은 자식들한테 돈대해서 잔소리를 많이 하시는것같아요. ㅠㅜ

    석진 씨가 몽골 사람을 너무 좋아하시나 봐요. 몽골 몽골이라는 말을 자줄 들어요. Talktomeinkorean의 이야기에서. 궁금한 게 있어요. 요즘 몽골어를 배우시는 한국분들이 점점 많아지고 있는지 그 이유를 잘 모르겠어요. 그게 정치와 밀접한 관련이 있죠? 한국과 몽골이 정치적으로 밀접한 관계를 맺게 되었지요?.

    잘 들었습니다.
    하지만 석진 씨가 “같은 반 아이들에 비해서 체구가 왜소하고…”라고 이야기 하셨는데 글에서 “반”이라는 말이 안 보이네요.

    경화처럼 우리 하국 장모가 패션 일로 잔소리하시는 거예요. 그렇지만 제가 그런 잔소리를 필요하니까 그냥 조용히하게 들어죠.

  • 우리 나라도 엄마들을 잔소리하면 한국 엄마들은 똑 같아요… 가끔 잔소리는 너무 싫지만 저한테 그 말을 아직도 기역했었서 실수가 때때로 없어요… =)
